Gibson Jimmy Page Signature Les Paul
This is a fine example of a Jimmy Page Les Paul. This 1996 1st edition Gibson
Jimmy Page Les Paul Standarad signature guitar "replicates the unique neck shape and custom electronics of Page's favorite guitar. "Les Paul #1," as the Rock Hall of Famer calls his personal guitar, is a 1959 sunburst Gibson Les Paul that he bought from Joe Walsh in the early 1970's.
The neck of Page's guitar is thick at the nut and at the neck heel, like a typical 1959 Les Paul, but it tapers to a super-slim depth in the middle. It was that way when Page acquired it, and he hasn't changed it. He did make two other modifications: He put a push/pull pot in the rear volume control that reverses the phase, in order to get a tone like Peter Green or B.B. King. And he replaced the tuners with sealed, gold plated Grovers to achieve the exact tuning and sensitivity of the Les Paul Custom he had been playing with Led Zeppelin".
Just like Jimmy Page's original '59 guitar, the neck is thick at the nut and at the neck heel, like a typical 1959 Les Paul, but it tapers to a super-slim depth in the middle. Solid mahogany body with a nice 'tiger-stripe' two-piece carved maple top with single-ply cream binding. One-piece mahogany neck, and rosewood fretboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets and inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers. Inlaid pearl "Gibson" headstock logo and "Les Paul Model" silkscreened in gold.
Unique to this model is the feature that each of the four controls has its own individual push-pull switch for phasing, coil-tapping, and series/parallel wiring, which gives the player a wonderfully expansive range of tonal possibilities.
This guitar is in excellent+ condition, plays beautifully and sounds incredible.
