Jimmy Page Les Paul

Here is a classic mod to a Les Paul that provides that signature Jimmy Page sound. All four control pots are push/pull control pots. They act as both volume/tone pots and switches. When all four switches are pushed in, you get the standard Les Paul control and sound. When they are pulled out, here’s what you get:

Bridge Volume: splits bridge pickup
Neck Volume: splits neck pickup
Bridge tone: puts bridge & neck pickups out of phase with each other
Neck tone: puts bridge & neck pickups in series together

 

This mod does not change the look of the Les Paul. The wiring is not very difficult if you have pretty good soldering skills. There are many versions of this on the web. Just Google “Jimmy Page Wiring” and you get many versions and even a few pre-wired harnesses. This version is from Seymour Duncan . I like it because it is easy to follow and does not require reading an electrical schematic.

I also like the version from Gibson. It simplifies keeping track of the lugs on the push/pull pots.

Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul
Every musician knows that late ’50s Sunburst Les Paul Standards are hard enough to come by as it is. Obtaining a pristine and exemplary ’59 ’Burst and modifying it for heightened performance and vastly expanded tonal options? Unheard of… unless, of course, you’re Jimmy Page. That’s exactly what the legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist, perhaps the world’s most iconic Les Paul player, did with his own ’59 Les Paul Standard, and now—thanks to the extreme efforts of Gibson’s Custom Shop and the intimate cooperation of Jimmy Page himself—the artist’s hallowed “Number Two” Les Paul is available to mere mortals, in the form of the Custom Shop Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul. Produced in strictly limited numbers, with two levels of aging, this guitar captures the look, feel, sound, and versatility of one of the greatest artist-owned Les Pauls of all time, and it is likely to disappear from authorized Gibson dealers in record time.
