Gibson 2005 Custom Shop Les Paul Jimmy Page #1 Guitar

This is a Gibson 2005 Custom Shop Les Paul Jimmy Page #1 Guitar. Attention Collectors!!!! This guitar is #508 out of 870 Custom Authentic Finished guitars which is a VOS guitar before Gibson had VOS guitars. There were 25 of these guitars that were aged by Tom Murphy and signed by Jimmy Page. There were another 150 that were aged by Tom Murphy but not signed by Jimmy then there were 870 done in the Custom Authentic (VOS) Finish. This is one of the Custom Authentic Finished guitars. These guitars have aged hardware and a lightly aged body. Custom Authentic Guitars are what VOS guitars were before they were called VOS. If you are a Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page fan this guitar is an absolute must. The guitar is an exact replica of Jimmy's #1 Les Paul. Edwin Wilson from the Gibson Custom Shop and a few others from Gibson went to England to examine Jimmy's #1. Another representative of Gibson was the primary contact with Jimmy and was the fellow who brought the 30 Jimmy Page Signature Les Paul 'Number One' to England for Jimmy to play and examine. With respect to the wiring, Edwin actually examined the wiring of Jimmy's guitar and put a meter on it. The pickups in Jimmy's actual vintage number one are definitely out of phase in the middle position, and the switch is definitely a coil tap. So the reissues are wired and make sounds just like Jimmy's guitar as it currently resides in his possession.

 

Edwin only had 45 minutes with the guitar, in one of Jimmy's mansions, with Jimmy watching everything. Edwin didn't get to weigh the guitar, or pull pickups out of the guitar, etc. He basically was allowed to take some pictures, measure and take a mold of the neck, and look in the control cavity with a meter. With the limited time and information, plus two prototypes subsequently sent to Jimmy for early feedback, they tried in earnest to duplicate a close replica honoring Jimmy's number one. The final guitars met with Jimmy's approval. Jimmy could not tell the difference. These do not come up often. Grab it will you can. The guitar is in perfect condition.
