Dear forum,

I was wondering if any of you had any background on Joe Perry's black Les Paul, that he is using in the 1989

music video.

Model of Les Paul:

Year of manufacture:

Type of pickups: (They are smooth and black)

 

I would like to purchase the same year and model and set it up with the same pickups ect..

I appreciate the help.

Just looks like a black LP Standard..

 

Henry took over the company in 1986, that video was made in 1989.. so its probably just a mid to late 80s LP Standard..

 

And the pickups are uncovered, you just cant see it in the video :)

 

Don't know much more than that.

On the headstock Joe's guitar, it looks like the gold Les Paul logo is at an angle or something, but on every late 80's Les Paul Standard I have seen, the logo is going straight up verical up the center of the headstock. Is there a particular year Les Paul that has an angled LP logo?

Also, his tuners don't look very shiny, do you think he has the plastic knobs on there?

No.

 

It's just an illusion. The word MODEL on the silkscreen makes it look like the whole Les Paul script is at an angle in those screen-grabs.

And the buttons / tuners are, as Rabs has already said, regular issue Standard tuners.

 

There is nothing 'special' about that LP. It's a perfectly ordinary Standard.

That, as you clearly noticed, was the whole point of my post...

I couldn't possibly agree more. The specifics of the guitar are almost irrelevant. Give JP a tea-chest strung with elastic bands and he'll make it sound good.

EDIT : I knew I had seen this somewhere!

For some insights on a couple of great Joe Perry licks check out the stuff from about 4:15...
