Starting life as a “Goldtop” it was refinished red by previous owner Rick Derringer, who had purchased it from the Lovin' Spoonful’s John Sebastian.

Joe Perry’s 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard This tobacco sunburst beauty was originally owned by Perry during Aerosmith’s ‘70s heyday but money troubles led him to sell it in the early ‘80s. At one point Texas shredder Eric Johnson owned it before it ended up in the hands of ubiquitously top-hatted guitarist Slash, who held onto to it for years and used it in the “November Rain” video before giving it back to Joe for his 50th birthday. 1959 Gibson Les Paul, Famous Guitars, Eric Johnson, November Rain, Joe Perry, Les Paul Standard, Famous Musicians, Reality Tv Shows, Rock Legends
