There are 1000s more details such as this in this great book..."Jimmy Page The Anthology".... of all of Jimmy's gear and when and how he used it all from day one..... takes the guess work out........... written by Jimmy.

Does Jimmy Page still believe that I Can't Quit You, Babe from CODA is still from a sound check?

Any pages on his pickups or Marshall settings?

This is a massive book.... lots of detail on amps and settings..... i haven't noticed flipping thru it anything on pups.... i'll need to sit down with it for a while..... i'm at work so maybe this evening i'll take some pics of those details.

Actually i did read a bit on that subject in this book......... He used some new recording gear he purchased to add more guitar parts and other tricks to a live performance that was recorded and used for Coda...... i can't recall the exact performance or the device he used.... though he has detailed time and dates for many of his recording, as well as what he used and how he used it.

Thank you for sharing! I put it on my Amazon wish list-maybe Santa Claus will get it for me :)

Here some of the amps that are detailed in the book.... that's just later Zep live gear..... there are a great deal more on the recording rigs he used.... some aren't even guitar amps though that is what he used them for. Need to get the book amigo!

The pics here doesn't even put a dent in the info here....

....while this book is not a text book on how to replicate Jimmy’s recordings or live sound it does provide some insight on what he used to get there.

I’m going to get the book. Is there any info/pics on his AD30?

You mean the Vox AC30?

If so .... then Yes.

There is a enormous guitar and equipment glossary in the back that makes it easy to find stuff.

The book is fantastic. Nice to see close up photos of the back / inside of his Superbass and all the other random Gack. Curious about the FX Loop and Slave on the Superbass. I may be wrong, but no body has really mentioned that much.

So cool! I need to grab this book. Are those KT88's in the Superbass? Would that have come with EL34's stock?
