I had a guy tell me one day he knew where "that stolen Zepplin guitar" sat for years and possibly is still there, he didn't know I dealt in guitars it just came up in a conversation so it could be plausible, I have been trying to track the gent down for the last few years to no avail.The thing is that we are seeing the theft in the context of today rather than the time of the theft. We all wonder what someone would actually have done with "Rock God" Page's favorite guitar, and how he possibly could have unloaded it without being discovered. However, when this incident happened, I don't think zeppelin had even graduated from the club & theater circuit, so I would doubt that nobody would have recognized that guitar, nor really given 2 $hits that it was once owned by Page. The guitar didn't become infamous until many years later, and could have changed hands many times since. Could the switch holes have been filled? I guess, but I assume the was also a huge amount of routing out of the back to make room for those switches. It still should not be that difficult to identify. But who knows, it very easily could have been destroyed years ago, or it could be sitting untouched in some guys basement. You just never know.
