Jimmy Page Talks About Les Paul

A video clip of LED ZEPPELIN’s Jimmy Page talking about his “hero,” Les Paul, and his love affair with his famous Gibson guitar can be viewed below.

Guitar Player Gear Guide recently offered a first look at one of the tastiest releases of 2008 — the Gibson Custom Jimmy Page Signature Les Paul Black Beauty.

Early in Jimmy Page’s career, one of his most relied upon guitars was the three-pickup 1960 Les Paul Custom “Black Beauty” with a bigsby tailpiece. In 1970, the guitar was stolen and never recovered, but thanks to the Gibson Custom Shop, this guitar is back in the form of a new Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page Les Paul Custom, recently announced at NAMM.
