Here's an extremely rare and beautiful Gibson USA Custom Shop Les Paul Standard Joe Perry Boneyard Model. As you can see the guitar has a killer AAAA flametop with factory VOS finished aged type nickle hardware and factory Gibson PAF type BurstBucker pickups.   ( There are no AAA or AAAA stampings on the guitar, but as you can see, it sure looks like a AAAAA type flame top )  Gibson only made 500 of these Limited Edition Bone Yard Les Pauls and two of those were a Prototype.  Almost of the guitars are in private collections so you'll rarely see one for sale, especially in this condition and with a Killer AAAAA flametop like this. 

The guitar has been played very little and it really is, in exceptional condition, especially for being almost thirteen years old. From the front it looks fantastic and is in excellent to near mint condition. There are a couple of dents on the very back edge, and I posted a good closeup picture of the biggest one, which is near the input jack.  Everything else, on the guitar, including the back, the frets, the fretboard, the neck and the headstock ( front and back ) is in excellent to near mint condition.

The matching Gibson Custom Shop Bone Yard hardshell case is included as well as the Custom Shop Care Pack ( case candy ) which includes some tags the warranty card Custom Shop cleaning cloth, Custom Shop picks, Custom Shop cord, and the truss rod tool. 

I'll also include some Aerosmith Joe Perry BoneYard Boys guitar picks, a few 2005 Aerosmith Rockin The Joint Tour Itinerary books, two Aerosmith Tour T Shirts, a new bottle of Joe Perry's Boneyard Hot Sauce, and I'll ship the guitar in a factory Gibson Box. 

The BONE3XX serial that's on the guitar is also on the factory Gibson Inspection Card.  Like a lot of vintage Gibson Custom Shop guitars, the original Historic Custom Shop Certificate was lost a few years ago.  However, I'll include a COA, but it's blank, so you'll have the option to fill in the model number and serial numbers.   

When I purchased this guitar, I new it was very special, so I sent Gibson Custom Service an email requesting the details about it,  I also sent them several good pictures including the serial number etc.   The Gibson rep sent me a very nice reply and he said that this guitar was either made for an Artist, or a Trade Show, but he couldn't say for sure, which one.  I'll include a copy of that email with the guitar.     

I also, recently had my luthier check the guitar out and he was very impressed.  He's been an Authorized Gibson Repair Tech for over 15 years and a luthier for over 35 years.  In that time he has worked on thousands of guitars including hundreds of Les Pauls and a Martin for Eric Clapton as well as the vintage Martin that Willie Nelson owns. 

I pack everything very well and ship very fast with Tracking Numbers.

Because of the high fees on credit cards, I prefer a direct bank wire transfer as payment.   However, I will accept any for of payment that Reverb offers.   

Here's some more info on this legendary guitar...........

Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul
Ever since the band's classic early hits like "Walk This Way", "Same Old Song and Dance", "Sweet Emotion", "Toys in the Attic", and "Back in the Saddle", Aerosmith's Joe Perry has been known for coining some of the fiercest riffs in music. No one rocks harder than Perry and Aerosmith, and no band has more intensely embodied the life, either, through ups and downs, departures and comebacks, they have remained a rock icon in the classic sense: mean, raw, and ready rip up the stage. For four decades, Perry has made the Gibson Les Paul his go-to guitar, and this legendary electric's fat tone, singing sustain, and unparalleled play-ability have remained at the center of his sound. Gibson Custom honors Perry's achievement with the Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul, an instrument that embodies both the radical style and the unparalleled tone of this supreme guitar.

The Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul's looks are likely to capture you first. The guitar is resplendent in a highly figured carved maple top, with a custom "Green Tiger" finish in nitrocellulose lacquer to superbly show off all the depth and dimension of the stunning wood the Custom Shop has selected for this project. Vintage cream binding, aged nickel hardware, and vintage style tulip-button tuners keep it all simple and classic, while a mother-of-pearl "Boneyard" headstock inlay and truss-rod cover engraved with Joe Perry's signature announce that this guitar is something special. In the tone department, the traditional pairing of a Tune-o-matic (ABR-1) bridge and stopbar tailpiece (with Bigsby vibrato optional) offer superb string-to-body coupling for enhanced resonance and sustain, and Custom Shop PAF type BurstBucker pickups complete the classic Les Paul sonic appointments. For added versatility, at Perry's request, the neck pickup has been wired reverse-polarity for funky out-of-phase tones in the middle position. Wrap it all up, and it's an axe to rattle some bones, and raise the dead--the Joe Perry Boneyard Les Paul. Available at your authorized Gibson dealer, and each guitar comes with a Custom Shop hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity........
