The Perry Guitars above which is a Gibson with a picture of his wife on it, showing his deep love for his second wife Billie Paulette Montgomery.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of Aerosmith in 2001, and in 2013, Perry and his songwriting partner Steven Tyler were recipients of the ASCAP Founders Award and were also inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.In October 2014, Simon & Shuster released Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith, written by Joe Perry with David Ritz.
I’ve seen a lot of shows, but this one that Perry played with the Perry Guitars was the most insane and inspiring tone I’ve EVER heard. My head was right at stack level and able to hear EVERY little pluck or slide on their axes in real time. Sonic Crack. Definately no “lawsuit gig”, and no evidence whatsoever of Tyler’s injury. Even when he was “dry humping” Joe during “No More, No More…” Incredible night!
The Perry Guitars is absolutely an amazing guitar with amazing sound. Buy it just now as a wise man.
