I've got ideas on a lefty-righty build I'm considering. Loosely based on the one Joe Perry has and uses primarily for Sweet Emotion.

The neck is a reverse headstock tele neck which really makes it stand out.
For sure , nobody rocks a guitar like as Papa Joe Perry does . I seem to remember way back 1980 during the Joe Perry Project that Joe would yield this during Same Old Song and Dance live . Joe Perry was something back then as he took his Music Man rig with him when he left Aerosmith as the Aerosmith Logo was on the front panel of his amp heads . Great shows as well . Came around to my neck of the woods in 80, 81, 82,and 83 which he had Brad Whitford in tow along with Steven Tyler who asked to join in the fun towards the later half of the tour which then segued right into Aerosmith reunion and Done With Mirrors album . Great fun times back then !

The one that has the stripped finish right ? Love Aerosmith !

This is the one I had in mind. |He's been carting it around for ages.

I had a mahogany body and neck (ebony fretboard) in mind for mine, but yours looks killer with that black limba body.
|No idea if or when I'll ever get around to it, got a few other projects in mind first, not to mention pushback from SWMBO (Why do you need ANOTHER guitar...)

Oh yeah You are very right that Joe Perry has been using this one for years . The one I was thinking of was the reverse body Strat stripped of her finish with the reverse Tele neck .
