This came across my facebook feed this morning...the 'Sundragon'

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin I, JP presents Sundragon, an amplifier that gives guitarists the opportunity to enjoy the sounds he created to shape the future of Rock and Roll.

Sundragon is a faithful recreation of the amp that Jimmy used exclusively to create the groundbreaking sounds on Led Zeppelin I and other notable recordings, such as Joe Cocker’s With a Little Help from My Friends.

A limited edition run of 50 hand built amps will be made throughout 2019, all signed by Jimmy Page.

Jimmy’s original amp started out life as a Supro Coronado. After falling out of the back of the band’s van during an early pre-Zeppelin tour, the amp was restored and modified in significant ways. Jimmy realised that the sonic palette of his amp had changed to something new and unique. After being shrouded in mystery for more than 50 years, Jimmy has decided to share this extraordinary amplifier with the world.

Working together closely with Mitch Colby and Perry Margouleff they have recreated this legendary amp for the first time.

“I had been impressed with the forensic analysis both Mitch and Perry had put into the research of the sonic reproduction of the original Supro amp to arrive at the Sundragon”, said Jimmy.

A limited edition of only 50 Sundragon amps will be hand built by Mitch Colby and signed by Jimmy Page. The amplifiers will be available throughout 2019 and a standard model will follow later in the year.

Other than the alleged mods, how much different could it be to the Supro? I was going to get the 1624T Dual tone. I believe Victor B has one. Perhaps he can chime in on its Zep tone.

With a Tone Bender pedal, the Supro amp pretty much nails the LZ1 tone. Without the pedal, there is a lot of headroom.

In addition to the Fender Custom Shop models, Fender will roll out both mirror and painted versions from its production lines. Priced from $1,399.99-$2,499.99, these will not be hand-signed or hand-painted by the artist, although Page did advise Fender first-hand on creation of the design to make sure the guitars were true-to-spec of the original Telecaster.

Probably a little more reasonable, let's see how they are in person. I can see the Gibson JPP Les Pauls jumping in price a little based on this release.

I’m not sure if it will affect them. Other JP Gibson releases didn’t seem to affect other models. Perhaps if JP releases some new material which he has been promising every year since 2010, it might stimulate the market. I think we will see pigs flying before a new Page solo release.

I wonder if it will be an “unlimited” run. the JPP’s were supposed to have been but stopped somewhere in the 870’s.
Yeah this one has scaled production set up like the Johnny Marr Jag.
