Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith 1990s, Larry Brooks Custom Fender Stratocaster, Fiesta Red, American Flag, Autographed! Authenticated! (BW2 #22) $9,777.00

WOW! Here's a rare opportunity to own a piece of history from the greatest American hard rock band ever.

After 50 years in Aerosmith, and a lifetime infatuation with guitars and amps, Brad Whitford accumulated so much gear that it’s overflowing his warehouse. He used this gear to create some of the most iconic rock and roll of our time. He selected over 170 of his precious guitars, amps and speakers and asked my help in finding them new homes with players and fans who will appreciate them as much as he does. There’s a ton of amazing gear here. Keep watching, we’re posting more of Brad’s collection every day.

Serial #V062059

From the Brad Whitford Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.

This custom Strat was made specifically for Brad by the now legendary Larry Brooks. Brooks was a member of the original Fender Custom Shop of the 90's. He built guitars for top artists including Eric Clapton, Waylon Jennings, Kurt Cobain and countless others. Basically, if Larry Brooks made it, it was a BADASS! Larry wrote Brad's "BW" initials under the neck. On the back of the headstock you'll find BOTH a "Larry Brooks Custom Built" decal and an Aerosmith inventory tag. Talk about dripping with vibe!!!

Brad has played a LOT of red Strats so it's hard to positively ID this one from the dozens of red Strats I've seen him playing live, and in pictures and video. It's clear this one has been played a lot.

See what I mean in the live Aerosmith 2001 video below.

This guitar was chosen to be included in the Aerosmith Las Vegas museum during their 2017-2022 Deuces Are Wild residency. Brad hand signed the guitar in December of 2022 at the end of their 5 year run.

Acquired directly from Brad Whitford. Brad’s guitar tech personally inspected the guitar. He adjusted the neck, polished the frets, oiled the fretboard, sprayed the pots and installed new strings. The guitar is in excellent working condition with no notable issues. The guitar is identified by an Aerosmith inventory tag on the headstock. It includes a hardshell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
