JIMMY PAGE Signature Guitar Sold For $55,000

Billboard.com reports: The first Gibson Jimmy Page Signature Les Paul guitar from Gibson Guitar Corp.'s Custom, Art & Historic Division has been sold for a reported $55,000 to an anonymous buyer. The figure, more than double its suggested list price, is a record for a new, first-run Gibson guitar.

Page signed and numbered each of the first 25 guitars of the series on the back of the headstock. The signature model replicates the dings, scratches, playing wear and unique shape of Page's "Number One", a 1959 Les Paul Standard that he acquired in 1969 and used on many LED ZEPPELIN recordings, including "Whole Lotta Love" and "Rock and Roll".
