If I were a bettin' man...I'd call BS. I'll admit I was excited to see the link to the photos, then this is what came up. It certainly looks like a vintage BB, but I don't think this is 'the' guitar. There is a serial number, so the next question would be if it were actually documented. Or an even bigger question, does it matter? Les Paul Custom (serial no. 06130

it's on display at the met showing it has been restored to factory spec.Over on the lpf I believe they spoke about the restoration of Jimmy's custom prior to it's return... specifically talking about the toggle switch ('s) hole repair work done.
I'm bringing the family to NY to see the exhibit, my oldest son and I being Zepp fans.
All of the pics I have of Page and this guitar show it with reflector cap knobs. With this being a 1960 model, no reason to believe the reflectors were not stock. I.e., this guitar is not factory spec.
I think a few of the big money guys over there on lpf were kind of involved with brokering the return of the guitar.Yeah - over on the LPF it seems there are a couple of guys who have actually seen the LPC since Page got it back. They said you could barely tell the repair even with the guitar in your hands.
