NEAR-MINT Jimmy Page Model
Non Chambered 11 lbs! 
AAA+ TOP!!

 
Here is a unique, beautifully preserved 17-year-old gem from the early "Good Wood Years" of  Gibson. This particular example is one of the cleanest & most stunning original Jimmy Page signature Les Pauls you will find anywhere;  She has an awe-inspiring AAAA flame-top with nice deeply defined ripples. Like every flame-top it is much stronger at certain angles then others.  This beauty sports a unique book matched maple top that has tons of character and stands out in a crowd. It is by far the nicest of what will now be the third Jimmy Page Les Pauls that I sell. The finish is especially nice, and makes this beauty even more of a catch.. Weighing in at 11 lbs, she feels like a true beast, can sustain for days, and has optimal resonance. Thanks to the factory Jimmy page wiring and push/pull  controls you can get sounds that are as mellow as a woody Strat to rip roaring bone crunching overdriven crunch that make Les Pauls the perfect rock guitars. This one is as sweet as you can get, add this baby to your collection & own a crucial piece of the "Burst" history.
 

* This guitar is in Near-Mint Condition, with minimal play-wear anywhere. She would be a beautiful addition to any serious collection. It has no visible fret wear, and   only a handful typical tiny surface marks from being polished.  I spotted one tiny ding on the back when I had the microscope out to inspect it. (not thru the finish) 
* It's in 100% original condition. (only pick guard changed)
 
* No major dings, dents, scratches, or buckle rash. 
* AAAA flamed maple top finished in a Honeyburst nitro gloss finish that is absolutely stunning! 
* Plays like a dream and sounds fantastic. The neck is straight and the truss rod works perfect.
  
* These highly sought after mid to late 90's "Good Wood Years" Les Pauls are being snatched up by serious collectors & pro players for their overall excellence and beauty. 
* Nice and fast 60's slim tapered neck profile.
* Non Chambered premium lightweight mahogany body.
* Includes an original 100 year anniversary Gibson  hardshell case along with all a weather proof cover for the case & truss rod tool. 
Serial: # 90847480
Weight: Exactly 11 lbs.
 
From the web*

In 1995, Gibson got together with Jimmy Page to produce a guitar similar to Jimmy's #1 Les Paul that he played with the band Led Zeppelin. This is the first Jimmy Page Signature guitar. This guitar faithfully recreates all the unique features (including an elliptical neck profile and single push/pull pot for series parallel pickup switching) that make #1 the legendary instrument it is. 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 original 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. This Signature model comes equipped with 496R and 500T ceramic magnet humbuckers, a figured maple top, Mahogany back, 22-fret bound rosewood fingerboard with trapezoid inlay, bound black peghead, gold hardware, Tune-O-Matic bridge/stop tailpiece, cream pickguard with engraved and gold painted "Jimmy Page" signature, a three-way selector toggle, volume and tone knobs are push/pull pots that put the pickups in and out of phase, series or parallel them and make the humbuckers single coil as well. It's like Jimmy Page just walked off the stage and handed you his guitar!
