Sorcerers Apprentices

June 1, 2010

gp0610_Gear_PP_HJP_nrGIBSON RECENTLY PRODUCED a signed and very limited-edition replica of Jimmy Page’s famous “Number Two” Les Paul, and it ain’t cheap. Well-heeled aficionados of Led Zeppelin’s legendary 6-string alchemist probably won’t care—they’ll likely plunk down any amount to touch a wisp of Zoso greatness (Page actually played the first 25 models produced)—but working-class cats aren’t going anywhere near the replica’s $25k price tag. So to please both sides of the fiscal divide, we’ve re-imagined Page’s ’70sera Led Zep setup as high- and low-priced options of gear available in 2010 (all prices are “street” unless otherwise noted).
