^ I like the sweater. The guitar's pretty nice too.
Yay! Good for JP. Great to see he finally got it back. It'd be nice to hear a lot more details on how it was tracked down and where it's been since '70. I think it's astonishing that it survived, much less found its way home.
not buying it.
The report has not been verified by former Led Zeppelin roadie Henry “the Horse” Smith, who confirmed the news on Facebook.
“Glad to announce the Black Beauty is now back in the hands of Jimmy thanks in part to Perry Margouleff,” Smith wrote. “This happened just a few months ago. It was a happy day for me to see Jimmy get this back.”
Page owned other Bigsby-loaded Black Beauties over the years. There’s no telling if this is the one
theres no telling? Just look at it. hint: the pickups.
There is a guy on this board who says he knows where its been this whole time. He says its common knowledge where it is.
yeah, ok pal.
Toooo frigging cool!
The first part is obviously a typo and should say "has now been verified".
I hope it's true but that story contains a lot of "maybes" in it.
If so, it's an epic tale. I want to know the story.
That guitar has a deep growl to it.
I saw this on FB as well. This was reported back in February....why is Guitar Player reporting it as if it JUST happened?
Of course it will be verified/authenticated. Just too much money going around for it not to be.
still. verified by a former zep roadie...zep broke up in 1980, nobody has seen this guitar since 1970 ...I probably have a closer relationship with Page than this guy.
Always cracks me up Jimmy Page has had more Signature Gibsons made for him than anyone else. I'm glad he got it back, but so what? It's not like it hurt his career or he's in need of any more guitars,lol! I hope he sells it and donates the profits to a charity of his choice!
Les Pauls seem to have nine lives.
that guitar changed history...its the one he used on hundreds of sessions, the very first session and the reason we know who page is
charted top 10 and he was sought after ever since.
Its more of a big deal to people like me who worship Pagey...it would be like finding Hoffa, but way cooler.
I'd like to see a few more details before considering this one "case closed"
I think Willie Dixon had it....
The guitar itself is fairly significant; it was one of the first nice guitars Jimmy owned. He bought it when he was working as a session guitarist and I believe it replaced a Country Gent or 6120. Would be cool if it indeed has been found and returned!
Nah. It was Joe Bonamassa.
