All original, all case candy and original case, in mint condition, this it a VOS, all aging done by Gibson as normal for this model .In 1973 after a long search for a second guitar that could stand up to his "Number 1" Les Paul, Jimmy Page purchased the '59 Les Paul that would become known as "Number 2". What started as a stock instrument eventually became one of the most sonically diverse Les Pauls in the world through a series of custom modifications. Desiring to achieve the full tonal range of the humbucker pickups, Page designed a switching system for coil splitting, series/parallel, and phase-reverse options for both pickups with push/pull pots on the volume and tone knobs along with push buttons underneath the pickguard.This 2010 Custom Shop Reissue is a meticulous recreation, inside and out, of Jimmy's original that can be heard on so many of Led Zepplin's albums from the mid 70's onward. The condition of this guitar is immaculate with the only markings coming from the Gibson factory itself. It comes with the original hardshell case and the original accessories and certificate of authenticity.Serial #: JP#2-021Year: 2010Top Wood: Figured MapleBack Wood: Solid MahoganyBinding: .090, CreamBody Type: Non-ChamberedAdhesive: Franklin Titebond 50Neck Wood: MahoganyNeck Profile: Page "Number Two"Truss Rod: TraditionalJoint Angle: 4 DegreeNeck Joint: Mortise & TenonFingerboard Wood: RosewoodFrets: 22FB Radius: 12"Nut Width: 1.687"FB Inlays: Aged Acrylic TrapezoidHeadstock Inlay: MOP LogoLogo: Period Correct Gibson Logo w/ "Les Paul Model" Silkscreened in GoldTruss Rod Cover: Vinyl Plastic "Antique Bell"Tuners: Die Cast Grover Tuners 12:01 RatioBridge: Tune-o-matic (ABR-1) Polished NickelTailpiece: Stop Bar ChromeKnobs: Gold Top HatPickguard: Reissue Cream w/ Two Push-button Switches UnderneathToggle Switch Washer: Cream w/ Gold SilkscreenStrings: EXL 120T .0095 - .044Strap Buttons: Schaller StraplocksNeck Pickup: Jimmy Page Burstbucker Covered Alnico IIIBridge Pickup: Jimmy Page "Number Two" Uncovered w/ Black Bobbins Alnico VControls: 2 Push/Pull Volume, 2 Push/Pull ToneControl Type: 500k Audio TaperCustom Switches: Two Push-button DPDT Switches Mounted Underneath the PickguardCoil Wiring: Parallel-Machine WoundToggle Switch: Vintage Three-way w/ Amber Plastic TipOutput Jack: 1/4" SwitchcraftFinish: Page Burst "Number Two" Nitrocellulose LacquerFinish Process: Tom Murphy Aged VOSCase: Original Gibson Custom Shop HSC Black/Maroon
