2006 Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Custom Authentic


A Near Mint Jimmy Page Custom Authentic With Aged Hardware

2006. Gibson. Les Paul Jimmy Page Custom Authentic. Tiger Striped Sunburst (9.25).

Single cutaway solid body. This near mint Les Paul Jimmy Page Authentic guitar weighs just 9.10 lbs. and is just like Jimmy Page's original '59 guitar. The neck is thick at the nut and at the neck heel, like a typical 1959 Les Paul, but it tapers to a super-slim depth in the middle. Solid mahogany body with a wild 'tiger-stripe' book-matched two-piece carved maple top with single-ply cream binding. One-piece mahogany neck with a nice fat nut width of 1 11/16 inches, a standard Gibson scale length of 24 3/4 inches and a 'long tenon' neck joint. Single-bound rosewood fretboard with 22 original medium-jumbo frets, inlaid pearl trapezoid position markers, and transparent red side dot markers. Inlaid pearl "Gibson" headstock logo and "Les Paul Model" silkscreened in gold. Two-layer black on white plastic truss rod cover secured by two screws. Serial number "JPP 805" inked-on in black on the back of the headstock. Individual Grover Roto-Matic tuners with half-moon metal buttons. Original holes for Kluson Deluxe tuners beneath as per Jimmy Page's guitar. Two fantastically resonant Gibson humbucker pickups with cream-colored plastic surrounds and outputs of 8.16k and 7.99k (the bridge pickup with the rectangular black label on the underside "Patent Applied For") - the label on the neck pickup has disintegrated. The neck pickup with the original nickel cover, the bridge pickup exposed. The potentiometers are dated "0506" (February 2006). Cream-colored plastic pickguard with large 'slot-head' screw on bracket. Four controls (two volume, two tone) plus three-way selector switch and two-way coil-tapping switch on the bridge pickup tone control. Gold-plastic bell-shaped "Bell" knobs. ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic retainer bridge with metal saddles and separate stud tailpiece. 'Page' style strap buttons with 'slot-head' screws. All hardware nickel-plated and aged. This JP Les Paul is in near mint (9.25) condition with just a miniscule amount of very light belt buckle scarring on the back of the body, and one small mark/indentation on the lower edge. Housed in the original Gibson custom five-latch, shaped black hardshell case with maroon plush lining (9.25).
