Has anyone got any footage / photos of Jimmy Page's LP from when Joe Walsh owned it?
Ooh, nice -- good question! Would love to see that!
Not sure but here is some footage..
Yeah, that ain't it.
Not it either
damn talk about potential buckle rash....holy crap that belt he's wearing in those clips is HUGE (still photo is the same belt) , but in the clip you can see more of it.
great sounding clips regardless.
so we need to keep plugging away at this...are there in photos or video of ole number one with Walsh?
This pic appears to be from the James Gang era. Could be it. Take a look at this link and go down to the Burst section. It was much more vibrant back then and the striping could be consistent with this Walsh photo. Any it changed hands April 1969

Not sure.. I've never seen any and I'm a Walsh diehard who researches constantly. Nothing confirmed as being "it" that I've seen but thanks for posting these great pics! Love to see Walsh with a LP.
Both the still from the vid and the image Core posted show reflector knobs so I don't believe either are number one. That is unless coincidently Walsh changed it to reflectors and Page switched them back.
Also - vid shows Grovers, wheras #1 still had Klusons when JPP got it. So that would mean Page switched the knobs from reflectors, switched the Grovers to Klusons, then less than a year later switched again to Grovers...
But anyway, the real point is that Page got #1 in April 1969, and the vid of Walsh is 1972."
FWIW I've looked, over the years, and never found a pic of Walsh with #1...
...but there must be one somewhere!
Here's a shot of #1 in July 69, about 3 months after Jimmy acquired it in April. Coincidently The James Gang was the opener at this show.
I have seen several shots from that era, with Page wearing his pink & purple Austin Powers outfit. But I have never seen that one. I believe there is some footage of them in France in the 2003 Led Zepp DVD.
I think this one is from June 1969.
Thing is Joe apparently didn't like the feel of that guitar after the neck shave so I cant see him playing it live a lot.
If there are photos I feel they will be before The James Gang.
I don't think so. Joe joined The James Gang in January 68 and he sold #1 to Jimmy in April 69. If he didn't like the neck, I dont think he would have kept it for more than a year. So I think he only would have had it while in the James Gang. I agree that it is very unlikely that he ever giged with it though.
Does anyone know when Joe Walsh acquired the guitar?
I don't remember where I read it but I don't think he played it live either.
I have been searching for a picture of Walsh with the Page's number one FOREVER! I really don't think one exists. And if one does, its not available online anywhere that I can find.
Also, has anyone ever noticed that the main riff of "Turn to Stone" sounds like John Paul Jones's keyboard parts in "No Quarter" ??
