THE TPP JOE PERRY "STRATOTELE" CUSTOM P-RAIL TRIBUTE
Arguably the Aerosmith legend's favourite guitar, crafted by his own hand from various parts and components over the years - the "StratoTele" is a unique tribute to one of Joe Perry's heroes, Jimi Hendrix. The Left-Handed Strat Body (strung Right-Handed) along with the Telecaster Neck is a direct influence from Hendrix's legendary "Newport" Hybrid - while the Heavy-Relic and 'Burnt' Sunburst Body finish is a look at Hendrix's Fillmore Strat that he set ablaze live on stage! Based upon the most recent incarnation of this classic guitar, which wowed audiences during Aerosmith's residency in Las Vegas, the P-Rail edition features a new Grey Pearl Pickguard and Seymour Duncan P-Rail pickups.
Custom Made - £2,499.00
Produced to-order and to the highest standards, this exacting tribute is hand-crafted featuring a Left-Handed USA Alder Stratocaster Body with Reversed Maple Telecaster Neck (just like Perry's) with Vintage Tint finish, Seymour Duncan P-Rail pickups with 3-way switching and Master Volume control, the guitar's trump card is a push/pull coil-tap feature that gives the player access to a dynamic series of varied tones. In standard mode, she harnesses the combined power of both the P90 and Rail single coils housed inside each pickup, when tapped - the player has access to the P90 single coil in the neck position and the Rail single coil in the bridge position! This gives the player access to the fullsome humbucker tones of a Les Paul Standard, the bassy command of a 56' Goldtop and the bright, hot-wound single coil tones of Stratocaster all in one guitar! A modified Hipshot "High-Mass" Strat Tremolo Bridge with 'Import' Saddles accompany a Custom Grey Pearl Pickguard and Vintage Kluson Button Tuners that are brought togther by a stunning 70's Sunburst Body Finish that has been professionally relic-ed and worn based upon archive images and footage of Perry's original guitar. The unique body also features the all-important "Joe Perry-Cut" to the lower horn, that sculpts the lower horn-bout back and allows for complete top-end fret access (which the original Left-Handed body does not)! If you're an Aerosmith or Joe Perry fan, this is the guitar for you, lovingly created and built to perform both in the studio and on stage no matter what. Includes Complimentary Hardcase.
