Jimmy Page Les Paul guitar reissue

Recommended Posts

Ill settle for a gold standard. Know Im going to pay in the neighborhood of $2500-$2700 tops. Never get that deal from those pricks at GC. At least the one here-rip off city!

Oh, I will buy one for $3000....remember, I am from England so the dollar is like half price for me. :lol: I might be going to America later this year so I am saving up for a guitar to get over there. :thumbsup:

That sure is a black beauty! Er, well according to the site, your going to be paying a lot more than that. Besides, there are only 500, best of luck to anyone trying to get one. If I had the money right now, I would actually go out and put my name down but its not looking like an option.

I remember when a guitar shop near me had the 2004 re-issue selling for $12,000 and I think it was the only one in the city. I pretended to be interested in it (well, I was) and had the staff all answering my questions, thinking I was actually going to buy it. It was a bit of fun and I didn't feel too bad about because they didn't seem to have anything else to do. They even gave me the numbers and stuff but I don't remember them. I didn't have a job at the time so there was no way I was actually buying it :lol:

Depends on who you know! My pal at GC got me my Gibson EDS1275 for $1600, and my $6000 Custom Shop '59 LP reissue for $3200. B)

Um, well unless I'm seeing things, the site says that they're $6000.

Well, the profit margin on sig models (especially Jimmy's) is negligable. There's little to no room to move no matter who you know. I was just sympathizing with my friend above. Yeah, if a Page model is listed at $6000, you're gonna pay $6000.

At least! :beer:

And they'll only go up if you wait. I decided to wait on the Duane Allman Les Paul . . . and now you can't get one for less than 10K. :rolleyes:

Good to see you round the place, Ev! :D

You know, I don't like how it is black with gold hardware. The three pickups don't appeal to me either, but if they released a Jimmy Page sunburst signature....

But that's what a Black Beauty is! :lol:

Meaning those aren't Page-specific amenities.

Nice to see you too Sam!! :beer:

On Ebay you can get a '58 Historic Reissue for $2000. Here are 2 that went for $2000. I'd take it over the standard any day because it's from Gibson's custom shop. The only difference between the '58 and the '59/'60 is the plain top, but it's still a nice reissue of the original, and a nicer guitar than their everyday Standard...

^^Yeah, most of the regular production Les Pauls I've played (and owned) pale in comparison to the Custom Shop guitars I've played (and owned). Hell, I have an Epiphone LP I bought for $300 that smokes the last two production Pauls I owned. Although I admit, my Epi is a rare exception. Most of them are crap. I just stumbled across this one and simply had to own it. Who'da thunk a friggin Epiphone would become my number 1? :lol:

We haven't jammed yet Ev! I will agree that the reissues are pretty much a rip off!

I have a '71 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe (totally customized) that will kick any other Les Paul that I've ever heard or played........

.......but that's just me! :D

I've been getting a couple of emails a week from Guitar Center. This one caught my eye with an ad for this guitar available Feb 15.

Are you kidding me? Jimmy's "Black Beauty" is sold out? That's sooo awesome! Are that many people with that kind of money?

Not really a rip-off. That's the going price here in this part of California.

They should of kept the #1 Les Paul signiature going.. Page used it much more than the Black Beauty.

He didn't use the Black Beauty guitar so much, because it got "nicked at an airport", as Jimmy put it. He said that was the only time he took it out. I hear the Les Paul company made a replacement for him before he released these other ones. That would be before Feb. 15th. That's when they were re-released here in California, anyways.

COLLECTORS mostly...not musicians. They buy and hold them just the sane as people do stamps, coins, high-dollar guns that will never be fired, etc. Something pretty to look at once in a while and hope to sell at some future date for a huge capital gain they won't have to report to the Taxman

Yep. Though I have to disagree about the "not musicians" part, at least in my case. The pricey guitars I've owned I played and enjoyed for a few years, and then turned for a tidy profit. :D
