These Les Paul Standards are hard to come by, but the Gibson custom Shop recently announced the Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul. This edition of the Les Paul’s feature a beautiful sunburst finish with a red element that fades to a dusky amber-brown, along with a clear serial number dating it to 1959. There are only 325 pieces produced with 2 levels of aging: the first 25 instruments will be aged by vintage-reproduction master Tom Murphy then inspected, played, hand signed and numbered by Jimmy Page himself. Another 100 guitars will be given the extensive aging treatment, and 200 will be finished to Gibson’s VOS specs. For all Les Paul and jimmy Page fans, these are definitely something to keep an eye out for.
