If I didn't have an elaborate Jimmy Page collection product proposal, I wouldn't be doing my job! He's the reason I am where I am...he started the guitar obsession for me and he's my favorite rock guitarist. But I can't divulge anything more than the fact that we at Gibson love Jimmy and he deserves so much of the credit for our success...we would be honored and elated to work with him again. Fingers crossed.Hey Mat, Is Gibson going to offer any Jimmy Page signature or Jimmy Page inspired guitars in the future. I believe the last Jimmy Page signature guitar was a Fender which is almost heresy around these parts.
How about Jimmy’s #1 pre t-top, with a double white bridge pickup as seen in the RAH concert. Could be the “inspired by Jimmy Page RAH model”. It wouldn’t be difficult. Choosing an appropriate top, shaving the neck and sticking a double white custom custombucker in the bridge. No push pull pots or any of that later nonsense. You already have the specs to Jimmy’s number 1. You could do an Aged and VOS version. I mean, c’mon, you guys can get creative over at Gibson. Then again, you did release a “Melvyn Franks” Les Paul.
Seriously, one more time around the park for the greatest Les Paul slinger of them all.
