2004 Jimmy Page Signature # 18 of 150
Page's Les Paul #1 that he uses on all of his tours.
If you have not hear or read about this series of signature guitars .
The guitars were all aged by Tom Murphy not only to look like they have been around
since 1959 but to exactly replicate the color and every scratch,
cigarette burn and wear and tear mark that is on his very own Les Paul.
Once each guitar, which all began as 2004, 1959 Historics, had the exact look of Jimmy's,
the pick ups which began as Gibson Burst Buckers, were re-wound to the exact specs of Jimmy's
for the exact sound.
One tone control pot has been replaced with a push- pull pot just as
Jimmy's currently is.
This switch allows the bridge pickup to be split as a single coil to get Page's Fender
sound when using his Les Paul onstage.
Then the necks were shaved down just as Jimmy's was to have the size and shape of the 60 style
thin neck which makes playing it a dream. Finally, the exact same frets were installed and
the same and fretwork was done so that the strings are so low it is unbelievable,
just like Jimmy's number one! Jimmy's axe started with the original tuners which were
changed to a second type and finally ended up with Glovers.
In order for the second type to fit an extra screw hole was drilled for each tuner that is now unused
for the Glovers and remain unfilled.
In order to have the exact look as Jimmy's these guitars were put through the
same process and now have the Glovers with the imprint from the other
replaced tuners and the extra holes. All of this would mean nothing if it were not for the fact that this not only looks exactly
like #1 but it sounds just like Jimmy's every time I have heard him live or seen him in
the Song Remains the Same and the newer live DVD,s ... and to play it is to die for.
Each note played screams, "listen to me".
I bought this guitar from a friend in San Diego,
I am the second owner of this beauty.
I have the original carton in which it was shipped from the factory,
all of the orignal tags and the kit that comes with it with the cleaning cloth,
the cable, and the cover for the toggle switch which I have never removed from
its pouch and has never been installed on the guitar.
This guitar comes with a Certificate of Authenticity which is personally signed by Jimmy Page!
The first 25 guitars which Jimmy played were each autographed by Jimmy and he hand wrote the serial
numbers on the back of the headstock.
