For more than 40 years, Jimmy Page has owned the legendary 1959 Les Paul “Number Two” guitar. Four years ago, Gibson Custom painstakingly recreated it to Page’s specifications, including the iconic aged flame maple top and faded “Page Burst 2” finish— even replicating the ding, dent and wear marks.
Only 25 Gibson Custom Jimmy Page Aged and Signed “Number Two” Les Paul guitars have ever been released worldwide. All 25 guitars were personally handled and played by Jimmy to ensure they met the highest quality standard of his original. Once approved, each guitar was individually signed and numbered by Jimmy Page. Page kept #1, while the remaining 24 guitars instantly became highly valued collector’s items. Finally, after half a decade, Guitar Center is opening the vault and offering #2 and #5 for auction.
Both guitars will be auctioned on eBay starting Thursday, June 19 at 4 p.m. PT through Sunday, June 29 at 4 p.m. PT.
The minimum bid is $20,000 for each guitar.
