Description: Gibson Jimmy Page "Number Two" Les PaulEDIT

The Gibson Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul is a Gibson Custom Shop recreation of Jimmy Page’s original 1959 Gibson Les Paul “Number Two”. Page purchased his “Number Two” guitar in 1973 after several years of looking for another Les Paul to go along with his “Number One” – a ‘59 Les Paul that was given to Page by Joe Walsh. What’s really cool about the Jimmy Page “Number Two” is the modifications Page and electronics wizard Steve Hoyland did to the pickup switching system. Page and Hoyland designed a system that gave the guitar coil splitting, series/parallel, and phase-reverse options for both pickups. All four of the tone and volume knobs have push/pull pots plus he added two DPDT (double pole, double throw) push-button switches hidden beneath the pickguard.

The Gibson Custom Shop recreation has a body made from a two-piece Eastern maple top attached to a one-piece, solid, lightweight, mahogany back. The two humbuckers are a covered Gibson Custom Bucker in the neck (rhythm) position and an uncovered Page Version 2 in the bridge (treble) position. The pickups were chosen to accurately recreate the tone of Page’s original ’59. The neck is made from a quarter-sawn, lightweight one-piece of mahogany. The guitar comes with a Custom Shop case and a leather-bound Certificate of Authenticity.

Gibson is only doing a limited run of 325 guitars. 100 will be aged by vintage-reproduction master Tom Murphy; 25 more will be aged by Tom Murphy and signed by Jimmy Page; and 200 will be finished to Gibson’s VOS specs. The 25 Aged/Signed have an MSRP of $25,882, the Aged version is $15,294 and the VOS-version is $11,176.
