A Near Mint Jimmy Page Custom Authentic With Aged Hardware

 

2006 Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Custom Authentic

 

This near mint Les Paul Jimmy Page Authentic guitar weighs just 9.10 lbs. and is 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 wild 'tiger-stripe' book-matched two-piece carved maple top with single-ply cream binding. One-piece mahogany neck with a nice fat nut width of 1 11/16 inches, a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a 'long tenon' neck joint. Single-bound rosewood fretboard with 22 original medium-jumbo frets, inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers, and transparent red side dot markers. Inlaid pearl "Gibson" headstock logo and "Les Paul Model" silkscreened in gold. Two-layer black on white plastic truss rod cover secured by two screws. Serial number "JPP 805" inked-on in black on the back of the headstock. Individual Grover Roto-Matic tuners with half-moon metal buttons. Original holes for Kluson Deluxe tuners beneath as per Jimmy Page's guitar. Two fantastically resonant Gibson humbucker pickups with cream-colored plastic surrounds and outputs of 8.16k and 7.99k (the bridge pickup with the rectangular black label on the underside "Patent Applied For") - the label on the neck pickup has disintegrated. The neck pickup with the original nickel cover, the bridge pickup exposed. The potentiometers are dated "0506" (February 2006). Cream-colored plastic pickguard with large 'slot-head' screw on bracket. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch and two-way coil-tapping switch on the bridge pickup tone control. Gold-plastic bell-shaped "Bell" knobs. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with metal saddles and separate stud tailpiece. 'Page' style strap buttons with 'slot-head' screws. All hardware nickel-plated and aged. This JP Les Paul is in near mint (9.25) condition with just a miniscule amount of very light belt buckle scarring on the back of the body, and one small mark/indentation on the lower edge. Housed in the original Gibson custom five-latch, shaped black hardshell case with maroon plush lining (9.25).

This perfectly balanced, ideal weight Jimmy Page Gibson Custom, Art & Historic guitar serial number "JPP 805" was shipped on "7/21/06" and is complete with the original "Certificate of Authenticity", "Gibson Gold Warranty" booklet (with checklist date), various hang-tags and the original truss-rod adjustment wrench.

This 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".
