I have played this instrument, and truthfully....it plays like a Les Paul. The only difference is the neck profile, which is super thin, like an Ibanez (no joke). If you like baseball bat necks, this guitar isn't for you. In fact, if you like paying your mortgage and being able to afford food, this guitar is not for you either. Would anyone really take a $10,000+ guitar to a bar gig? The price of this guitar is so outrageous, even with the limited production, I doubt most people will be seeking it out in 20 years. Remember, you can't make an instant collectible....this is a NEW guitar commanding a vintage price. It's for wealthy collectors to hang on their wall and ooh and ahhh over, not for average players. It is not the first Jimmy Page sig guitar, although it is the first "custom shop" model and prob closest to Jimmy's own Les Paul. The aged finish is creative and interesting, but not worth the extra $$$ vs. a standard Les Paul or a 58 or 59 re-issue. If you're a Page fan (as I am), you'll prob want this guitar, but consider all the great gear you could get with the $$$ and you might have second thoughts. Check out the Joe Perry Boneyard, which is hands down a better Les Paul for the $$$.
Gotta say this is one very sharp axe. The intonation is dead-on and playability is smooth with a creamy yet distinctive tone. Having said that, a regular Les Paul Custom is every bit as good at less than 1/4 the price. This is one for the collectors. At it's limited run it will certainly go up in value and become just as artificially inflated as the rest of Gibson's line.The serious player will eschew such a purchase realizing that tone comes from your hands and music from the soul - not from somebody else's faithfully re-created instument.
For this much money Jimmy Page better come with the guitar. You can buy a regular LP for this much money and put everything on it that this LP has, and have money left over to buy a car. Other than that it sounds great, good sustain and all.
The only way this guitar could be better is if jimmy page came with it, I you like zeppelin and have the cash buy this!!
it's a really sweet guitar played by one of rocks most influnecial guitarist and bands. if you don't like it, you don't like rock.
This guitar was very nice out of the box. But once I began to play it still sounded good, that is until the circuit board arched and the whole thing went up in smoke... what a piece of shit. All show and no play DO NOT BUY!!!
This guitar is vastely overpriced, i sold 2 of my PRS's and a Fender just to get it, not to mention using the 3000 dollars i had to save up, man, it is so worth it, theres nothing really on the guitar to point out that, oh yeah, thats jimmy pages guitar, but its great.
This guitar i had to buy selling three of my beloved SG's and saving up every scrap of money i could get. then i finally got it and OMG its the best sound i have ever heard jimmy pages #1 les paul is truley #1 !
This, like all other Gibson LP's is a great guitar. It definately lives up to the Gibson name. Dont get me wrong this is a great guitar, but it is really nothing special compared to any other Gibson LP, for the price you could buy just about any other Gibson LP, put any pickups in it you want and buy a really nice tube stack and still have money to spare. Really, dont waste your money for the Jimmy Page name.
