    He was on Jimmy's Christmas card list after he met him so he's got his signature in a couple of old card's. His Idea of Christmas card's was...how can i put it....Very Jimmy Page i guess, black and white and quite bleak looking. no Santa or Rudolph in sight.:D

    I think the sentimental value would out weigh the monetary value, unless someone was willing to pay silly money for them. :hmm:

    Jimmy still holds the record for most runs scored with a Gretsch.

    great stuff thanks for the info

    does anyone know why JP switched from his mainstream tele to the LP?

    I know LP himself was very greatful and thanked JP for bringing his guitar to the new generation of players back in the very early 70's

    Is that really him? Or has that photo been modified? Either way, it is more Jimmy than I ever want to see!

    Well, he always had the 3 pickup black LP Custom. He just did not play it as much. From the interviews I have seen / read, he sort of alludes to "everyone" switching to Les Pauls about that same time (70-72). For one, during the mid 60s, they were not even making single cut LPs. So if you played a new guitar, it was something different. And nobody knew that bursts would turn out to be what they are today. Although there was a demand for the single cut Les Paul to come back; thus in 1968.....

    He used it extensively through out his session day's. I would probly guess it's been on more recordings than his 59. In the Sixties if it wasn't "Big Jim Sullivan" playing guitar on sessions it was probly Little Jimmy Page.
