In his unwavering pursuit of success, particularly through the challenges of Aerosmiths early years, Brad Whitford displays a kinship to the ultimate tenacity of the Les Paul design: the time-will-prove qualities and heroic achievements of a guitar that wasnt fully appreciated until half a decade after it was deleted from the Gibson catalog.
