    No it's not. Wide binding, wide headstock, pancake body... it's a late '69/early '70.

    I think Boston must have stolen their album covers from the two shirts he is wearing. LOL

    Nope - pancake body.

    There was a story about a guy who sold JP a 52 converted to humbuckers & how that was the red guitar, but the dates were all wrong, and the visuals on the guitar are there for all to see.

    As stated above, 69/70 deluxe, factory humbuckers, after-market paint job.

    Here's Jimmy's Twin neck before and after the covers were removed.

    Also and this has nothing to do with his guitars but i thought Jimmy Page fans would like these pic's, It's Jimmy's old house. formerly owned by Michael Caine,"Not a lot of people know that":laugh2:...but also sadly the place where John "Bonzo" Bonham passed away.:(

    What's up with that post sticking up near the tail piece that appears to have the B string attached to it? Does he drop the B for some reason?

    Anyone got a shot of the back of that guitar? Or the head stock logo?

    No John did not Die there. Your thinking of Boleskine house, It's not a castle just a nice sized house on the side of Lock Ness.

    that knob is a B-bender
    by moving the strap pin near the neck, the tension on the B string is altered, basically, a pedal steel guitar level is placed inside the guitar and is controlled by moving the strap pin near the beck

    here is the b-bender in action again
    granted these are on the tele, not the LP, jimmy said that it lost most if its tone when they "chambered" it to install the B-bender

    I used to have a 3 album bootleg recording of those concerts they did in 1979 in Sweden. Great stuff! They also did "In The Evening" - very cool.
