Led Zeppelin - Jimmy Page's Guitar Gear Rig and Equipment

Jimmy Page is an English guitarist, composer and record producer. Jimmy Page began his career as a studio session guitarist in London and was later a member of The Yardbirds, from late 1966 to 1968, before founding the English rock band Led Zeppelin. Page has been described as "unquestionably one of the all-time most influential, important, and versatile guitarists and songwriters in rock history." In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Page #9 in its list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, as a member of The Yardbirds and also as a member of Led Zeppelin.

Jimmy has had a long career and played on a ton of gear. Let's look at what gear and equipment has been seen in Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page's Guitar Rig.

Guitars

Cool Notes: Jimmy Page is reputed to own over 1500 different guitars. Page gave this rough estimate to BBC Radio Two presenter Stuart Maconie in June 2005.

Due to the fact the guitar was too heavy for him, one of Jimmy Page's Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty" is now owned by Dan Hawkins of The Darkness (you can find Dan's rig profile on UberProAudio also). It is not the same Black Beauty that was stolen from him in 1970.
