The incredible double-neck fantasy guitar, with details true to its original conception. Limited edition of 250 instruments worldwide.
Each Jimmy Page Reissue Double Neck is carefully modeled on Jimmy's classic guitar, from the shape of the neck to the long-string-pull tailpiece. Even the pickups were painstakingly analyzed to duplicate their unique sound.
Like the original it has a mahogany body, mahogany necks with Madagascar rosewood fretboards and pearloid split parallelogram inlays. 2 specially-designed Gibson Jimmy Page humbuckers (the same as on the enormously successful Jimmy Page Signature Les Paul) reproduce the amazing tone Led Zeppelin fans love. The ABR-1 style bridge and double-band vintage-style tuners are also true to the original.
Jimmy Page originally sought out a double-neck when the Led Zeppe
lin IV album was completed and it was clear that "Stairway to Heaven" would have to be played live. To keep pace with the changes of the song, there would be no time to change between 6- and 12-string guitars. The Gibson double-neck worked out so well that Jimmy used it on other Led Zeppelin songs, including "Rainsong," "Celebration," and "The Song Remains the Same."
The almost magical effect of the Gibson Jimmy Page Double neck remains the same as well, but only 250 of these Vintage Original Spec models are being produced worldwide - if you wait too long, it will be nearly as difficult to buy one of these as, well, a Stairway to Heaven.

This guitar is the nicest of all the guitars I have owned! It may be a little heavey, but once you get rockin it doesnt really matter! I have used it through a Marshall Full stack only, no pedals or anything. Anyway, it is a great guitar with a price that is a little high but so is the stairway to heaven right?!
The guitar is amazing, right to the last detail, the color is fabulous, (except of course for the replicated dings and Page?s signature that come with the AGED model) all the weird specifics are in as well: the long distance between the bridge and tail piece, the headstock, the double covered vintage tuners, the speed knobs, the gap between the neck and the body (look for it), rusty screws, even the custom logo on the thrust rod. The smell of the case combined with the African mahogany body and neck are just amazing. My one complaint and this one goes specially for the ?Aged? model is that for that kind of coin, something special should come with the guitar, like a replica of Jimmy's case (like they did for the Clapton?s ES-335 and Blackie tribute series). Nothing of the kind comes on either package; it's just a Gibson custom case with a Led Zep DVD (which you can get anywhere) and an ?exclusive? interview of Page on the Double Neck). Come on guys!! Put the extra mile on it, so much work went in the guitar, certainly you can spare a little more for the presentation. And by the way, there were 25 Aged guitars out there. About 10 were sold through a (excuse me) ridiculous raffle, and the other 15? Well god knows; Gibson or loyal Zeppelin fans appear to have a clue. If you get a chance to own one of these lovelies, my advice is: don't play it. I know instruments are meant to be played. Yea, not this one! It is a definite collector?s piece and it should be kept in mint condition, keep the box as well, it will help maintain its value. If you want to know what a Page burst bucker sounds like, listen to one of the later edition of the Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page LP custom shop series, plugged into a Tube Marshall (let?s go with the 1962 Marshall Bluesbreakers Combo Amp), my GOD!!! It?s the best sounding guitar I have ever heard by far. I own one and you don't need any distortion, just hit the G chord on the treble pickup and you'll catch a glimpse of what heaven should sound like, to me that?s just one of the best ways to get an overview of an instrument?s overall tonal character. Best of luck to you all and thank you for reading, I hope this review helps to take caution for all of you collectors out there.
This is a recreation of the master's axe. You don't need to consider thinking about purchasing if you have the money for it. If you're set financially, this looks like an amazing guitar, just because its a prototype of the guitar Page used
