MINTY 2008 Gibson Custom Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom VOS!
Here is a desirable Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom Signature Model. The condition looks pretty much unplayed. It's VOS so it shows a finish haze and very light surface marks but there doesn't appear to be any additional wear. The guitar plays excellent and has a very unique amount of tonal options. The guitar comes with the original case and all the case candy including COA, pack list, BOTH control instruction overlays, strap locks etc. This is about as nice an example you could find.
Gibson proudly returns Page's cherished lost guitar in the form of the Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom ” a painstaking recreating of the iconic instrument with the addition of some of the most innovative electronics to ever grace a Les Paul Custom.
The result is this stunning "Black Beauty" with a slim-profile neck, Page BurstBucker pickups, gold Bigsby vibrato and an innovative six-position toggle that lets you isolate the neck and bridge pickups or add the middle in any combination.
In the normal position, the toggle operates like a standard 2 pickup Les Paul toggle: selecting Neck pickup, Neck and Bridge pickup, or Bridge pickup. Push it to the unique forward position, and now you can choose between Neck & Middle, Neck & Middle & Bridge, or Bridge & Middle. A push-pull treble tone knob splits the rear pickup for the traditional Jimmy Page single coil option.
Handcrafted for comfort and playability, this guitar is period accurate, and has received the VOS (Vintage Original Spec) treatment by the Gibson Custom Shop. A special nitro-cellulose finish treatment gives it the patina of a gently-aged vintage electric guitar. The Bigsby tailpiece and the rest of the gold hardware feature a worn look to match.
Limited to a worldwide edition of just 500 guitars, the Gibson Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom is Gibson's heartfelt tribute to a true legend and to the guitar he loved and lost.
Perhaps no one has had a bigger impact on the style and sound of hard rock guitar than the deservedly legendary Jimmy Page. As the musical mastermind of Led Zeppelin, Page's tone, playing, and phrasing made him one of the most influential musicians of the past 50 years.
The exclusive Les Paul electric guitar that bears Page's name also comes with a special Gibson Custom Shop case with silk-screen JP signature Certificate of Authenticity.
