Limited Edition Guitars: Although guitarist extraordinaire and founder of Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page is reputed to own more than 1,500 guitars, he remains dazed and confused to this day over the loss of his 1960 Les Paul Black Beauty. The guitar J.P. called "the one that got away" is back thanks to the Gibson Custom Shop. Jimmy's lost guitar, which was stolen at an airport in 1970, is being re-created in a limited-edition series to honor Mr. Page's astounding body of work. Only 500 handmade guitars will be produced worldwide.

The guitar, officially titled the "Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom," joins the company's highly regarded Vintage Original Spec Series. Made to vintage-original specifications of Jimmy's original, it is available in two versions: the VOS with Bigsby and the VOS with Stoptail. A custom case and a certificate of authenticity are included with purchase.

Just like Jimmy's original Black Beauty, the guitar has an ebony finish with a carved mahogany top and a solid lightweight mahogany back. It features gold hardware and a multi-ply white and black binding on the top and back of this beautifully crafted instrument. The tailpiece on the guitar is what differentiates the two models. The price of each model is around $6,000 and available at MusiciansFriend.com

I would be substantially richer if I had a nickel for every time I heard a guitar player playing a Jimmy Page-inspired riff whether it was in a nightclub, a studio, a music store, a garage, or a cellar! To all the guitar players who still find time to strum, hum, and ramble on, this guitar is worthy of your touch.
