Brad Whitford’s Aerosmith Gibson, Explorer “Prop” Authenticated! (#174) $4,995.00
From the Brad Whitford Collection at Donn Bennett’s Drum Vault.
Just when I think I’ve seen everything! This “prop” guitar is one of two identical prop guitars made for Aerosmith. We don’t know exactly how they were used, but assume they were video props. One corner of the guitar body and the end of the headstock are cracked, as if they were smashed. I’ll assume, that rather than destroy a perfectly good guitar, they opted to use fakes instead. If that’s true, then maybe “The Bad Boys From Boston” aren’t as bad as we actually thought, or at least they love their guitars too much to intentionally destroy them. If they were used as a video prop I’ve never seen them in any video.
They are pretty convincing fakes. They have an actual neck with real tuning pegs. On the the body are three actual knobs and strap pegs. All the strings, hardware, pick ups and pick guard are photo replicas.
Acquired directly from Brad Whitford. It includes a Gibson hardshell case, one of Brad’s custom Aerosmith guitar pics and a certificate of authenticity signed by Brad Whitford.
