This sounds right to me too. Page interview maybe?I thought the pickup failed in Australia and an Aussie installed a Chrome T-Top
Its funny how much legend there is about Page's modded this and custom that. Yet there is surprisingly very little documented evidence that he did much more than play and maintain what was generally available for the Zeppelin era. Experiment he did for sure, but there just wasn't much reason to seek out custom amp and guitar mods when he did so well with what was already available. Plus, Led Zeppelin were BUSY! Especially those first few years, something breaks, have it repaired just like any other bloke, or buy a few new ones. Custom work takes time and is NOT generally available. Later, post Zeppelin, he had the luxury of time, different pickup wiring mods, custom amps, even auto tuning guitars, but almost none of tha made it into Zeppelin.
I like the T-top era too, especially in the middle position.
