1979 Marshall JMP 2104
1982 Gibson Les Paul Standard
1990 Fender/Musikraft Telecaster Deluxe
Is that the one given to him by Jeff Beck?
What amazes me is while we all have G.A.S., most of the greats tend to hold on to a select few guitars and use them forever
When you get the one "that works" for you, there is no reason to change. When you find your tone, you have your tone.

It's weird, but it looks more beat up and haggard in one of the older pictures than in the more recent ones. Was it refinished? Looks like the neck pickup has been replaced, or at least had a cover fitted too.
What's the deal with that black Tele, though? I think I remember reading about it. Is that the Dragon Tele that got refinished, or is it a different one altogether?
Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
One of the things people don't realize is that #3 and the red guitar used on the `77 US tour are actually two different guitars. Different logos, different cutaway bindings, different back colors. Was a big deal over at the Les Paul forum and the Royal Orleans site not long ago.
The guitar in the photos above (all pics from 1977) is not the same as the one in the other photos. It is the "other #3". It was only known to be used on the 1977 tour. (The real #3 was allegedly not used on that tour.) This guitar is a 1950s LP. It has thin binding in the cutaway, a small headstock, 1950s logo, one piece body, and one piece neck. The #3 in the other photos is the one that is well known and was used in TSRTS movie. You can find more info about the two red guitars here:
Funny, I said all that in my earlier posts.
And mind that the one that has a covered neck pickup also has a B-Bender installed.
Page has A LOT of guitars..he just brings what he needs to a gig. Most Pro's have a nice stash of guitars that never leave home/studio. They are a tax write-off, or they get lots of them for free.......what would YOU do..???????..................yeah, me too!
EVH's Frankenstein was a factory second junker put together by a drunk teenager and it's one of the most sought after guitar tones ever...Ian Ballard
playing an electric guitar unplugged to determine how it will sound is like sitting in a car, with the engine off, to determine how fast it is.
