The PRS was a proto-type.
Anyone know what kind of guitar Page used to record Traveling Riverside Blues? Was it the Danelectro?
Jimmy Page Fine Art Photographic Print: Baron Wolman (1977)
aka Backstage at Oakland 1977
did you buy it? of all of the framed photos that they posted for sale, this is the only one that interests me. but not for $1600+!
I have to ask if that red guitar is the #3 or if it is the other red guitar that is a late 50s LP painted red....? 77 is the right year for that guitar to be on stage. #3 got the B bender in the 80s i think. so from that pic it is hard to tell which red guitar that is. maybe if you look at the alignment of the tail piece to the knobs, you could say it is a 50s LP......but is the head stock bigger (69 LP)?
Oh no - would never buy such an item for that price (even though it is by far one of my all-time fave Led Zeppelin related pictures...EVER!!!!)
I believe that it is the 1969 "Custom" Gibson Les Paul Deluxe?
Those pics are from the same gig (Oakland) so yes, that's the same guitar.
It was pictures from that gig that first got my attention a few years ago in Blackmikito's killer thread about the #3 Les Paul, and got me digging and eventually concluding it was a different guitar. The original discussion can be found here: Royal Orleans • View topic - Page's "Custom" Red Les Paul.
It is my favourite of all Page's stage guitars (just barely edging out #1) - I just love the look of it. #3, the more well known Norlin, whilst looking similar doesn't do it for me so much...
