Jimmy using a Gibson SG on the 1980 tour?

Recommended Posts

Nice post! I've been wondering the same thing for a while. Most of the Jimmy Page gear pages cite him using a Gibson SG occasionally in 1980, but I've never seen or heard any proof.

There's a couple of well circulated photos of him with an SG, but AFAIK none actually with Zep. Usually they're pics of him jamming at parties or with other bands.

In one of them, from 1984 I think (Glyn Johns' birthday party?) he looks uncanily like Angus Young...

But sorry, no scanner.

The "SG"

isn't that just in refrence to his double neck SG?

While that double neck guitar essentually has the same symmetric body style of the Gibson SG the model is actually a Gibson EDS 1275. When I first saw it I simply thought of it as a double necked SG as well

Well, his double neck technically isn't an SG, it just has the same body style, and I've heard that Jimmy used this SG on the 1980 tour, and Jimmy has used the double neck on every tour since 1971.
