Gibson Unveils Jimmy Page’s Iconic Double-Neck Guitar: An Exclusive $50,000 Tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll

Introducing the New Collector’s Edition Jimmy Page 1969 ‌EDS-1275 Guitar

Gibson recently announced a collaboration with rock legend ⁤Jimmy Page to ‍release a​ series of signature guitars, starting with an exact replica of his⁢ iconic double-neck guitar. The Collector’s Edition Jimmy‌ Page ‍1969 EDS-1275 has now been officially launched ‍by the brand.

A⁤ Direct Clone of ⁣a Legendary Original

The ​brand claims that this new ​version is a faithful reproduction of the original double-neck guitar custom-built for Page in the late 1960s. Page was in search of a double-neck guitar when the EDS-1275 model had been discontinued. This instrument became​ synonymous with Led Zeppelin’s most famous songs,⁤ particularly the live performances of “Stairway to Heaven,” sparking a resurgence in the popularity of‍ double-neck guitars.

A Tribute to Rock ‘n’ Roll Heritage

Gibson worked closely with Page to meticulously recreate every aspect of the historic instrument. Employing advanced 3D scanning and Murphy Lab aging techniques, the brand ensured that every detail, from the wear and ⁢tear ⁣to the sonic characteristics, was accurately replicated. Only 50 guitars have been ‌crafted by Gibson Custom luthiers and meticulously aged by the Murphy Lab to honor both the guitar and the legendary guitarist Jimmy Page.

An Ultra-Exclusive Launch

Much like‍ the release ‌of the Kirk Hammett Greeny signature guitar, the Collector’s Edition Jimmy Page model will be part of an extremely limited run of just 50 units. Each guitar will be played and hand-signed by Page himself, and they will only be available through the Gibson Garage. Priced at $49,999 each, this collector’s guitar is a testament to Gibson’s dedication to honoring iconic instruments.

Specifications and⁢ Features

While specific details of‌ the ⁤Collector’s Edition model have not ⁤been disclosed, it is expected to ‍mirror the original double-neck guitar. With two mahogany necks attached to a mahogany⁣ body and rosewood fingerboards adorned with‌ split parallelograms, the guitar retains its ⁣vintage appeal. The 24.75”-scale instrument is equipped with two sets of humbuckers (one covered, one uncovered), master tone and volume controls, and a three-way selector ⁣switch. Kluson tuners and other appointments‍ complete the classic look and sound of this iconic guitar.

In conclusion, the partnership between Gibson and Jimmy Page ‌has resulted in a collector’s dream guitar that pays​ tribute to an essential piece of rock⁤ ‘n’ ⁢roll history. With only 50 units available, each meticulously crafted and aged to perfection, the Collector’s Edition Jimmy Page 1969 EDS-1275 is a testament to the enduring legacy of‌ both the instrument ‍and the artist who made it ⁣famous.
