A GUITAR CASE STORY - Jimmy Page's Guitar Case Returned After 47 Years

Recommended Posts

What would that guitar case be worth to a collector today if you had to put a price on it 

It's difficult to put a price on it as there are few if any authentic guitar cases from guitarists of similar stature/popularity sold in previous auctions to compare it against. However, given the case's provenance is affirmed by Page himself and that aesthetically it bears "Led Zeppelin" on it I would start the hypothetical bidding at $10,000 USD but anticipate it to hypothetically go for perhaps as much as $100,000 USD -- most likely to a wealthy rock star. In fact, I figure Page himself may have gone that high if he had to just to get it back. It's NOT a guitar of course, so I can't see it having gone for more than that.

A great story and thanks for sharing ...personally I would have kept the case tho 😉

Keeping the case against getting to meet and spend 15 minutes with Jimmy - meeting Jimmy wins every time.

I would gladly dole out at least $25 grand for that case, if it were at an auction.... for charity..... after borrowing the money from the leprechaun that lives down my road, under the bridge.... shhhhh. Lol. 

Honestly I have no idea, but I am curious to know what something like that would be worth to a collector. Maybe someone who's an expert will read this posting. 

What a fantastic story. Great job Jeff. Kudos to you sir. 

As for the member jousting names,  "chump", at him, that's uncalled for, rude, childish and possibly correlated with your own subconscious mind, displacing the true inner feelings you have about yourself and casting them onto what appears to everyone else, a fantastic guy! 

Keep negativity and insults to yourself and those of your own ilk. There's no room for that here on this forum in any capacity. Spew the negativity somewhere else on some other site for negative immature people. If you have nothing positive to say, don't say anything. Simple. 

I'm Johnnycanasoda, this is my first post. Great to be amongst you fine people sharing the love of Zeppelin.

How hard would it be to have Jimmy Page sign a Gibson Les Paul back cover electronic plate, how can that happen.

Nigh on impossible. He might suspect you’ll put it straight on ebay

Really good story, now how long before a limited edition signed copy of the case appears.!

Nah, even Jimmy would not think of that....

Hi,

It must be known that the guitar case is in the photograph inside the Led Zep IV Remaster CD?  I just saw it, but is that common knowledge?  Adam

Well, $25,000 is nothing. Based on recent high end auction results, I'd say you're looking at a minimum of $60,000...probably closer to $125,000.

Oh, that photo. Sure. I misunderstood and thought you meant a photo taken more recently was included. 😄
