這是Jimmy Page最珍貴的吉他之一,Page於1960年末從Joe Walsh手中購入了傳奇的1959 Les Paul No.1,其琴頸已經幾乎被磨光了,同時也沒有序號,之後他數次想要再購買第二把Les Paul,直到1973年,他購買了被稱為No.2的1959 Les Paul Standard,而這把琴是完全原廠的,為了讓兩支琴頸尺寸差異不要過大,Page對琴頸外形加以打磨,使其彈奏起來盡可能的與自己的No.1相似,爾後這支琴就跟隨著Jimmy Page至今。

Tom Murphy完整複製了原琴的傷痕位置,讓任何細節都盡可能接近原琴,從木頭選料、外觀、配色一直到音色共鳴等,都是一支非常完美無可挑惕的Les Paul復刻琴。原廠搭配一組複製原琴音色的BurstBucker拾音器,而和原琴配置一樣,護板下方隱藏了兩個按鈕,能讓拾音器線圈分離、串行/並行以及反相選件,擁有更豐富的音色,與普通的Les Paul截然不同。

2021年後推出的Murphy Lab系列已不再由Tom Murphy本人操刀製作,而在過去十幾年來,Slash、Jimmy Page、Joe Perry等,只要由Tom Murphy本人製作的復刻簽名琴,不只是保值,許多在市場上價格都翻了兩三倍,收藏價值非常高。近全新收藏品項,配件齊全,有興趣的玩家們把握收藏機會。

Rare and dreamlike guitar... Only limited to 25 Pieces Worldwide.

This is a limited edition model released by Gibson Custom in 2009. It is one of the few replicas personally crafted by Gibson's legendary luthier Tom Murphy, replicated the 1959 Les Paul Standard owned by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, serial number 9 1703.

In 2004, Gibson released the Jimmy Page No.1 Les Paul, followed by the release of another iconic guitar, the Les Paul No.2, in 2009. The aged version of the No.2 was limited to 100 pieces, with an additional 25 meticulously selected and crafted by Gibson Custom, each signed by Jimmy Page himself after personally playing them.

This guitar is one of Jimmy Page's most treasured instruments. He purchased the legendary 1959 Les Paul No.1 from Joe Walsh in the late 1960s. The neck of this guitar had been almost entirely worn down and had no serial number. After several attempts to acquire a second Les Paul, Page finally purchased the 1959 Les Paul Standard, known as No.2, in 1973. This guitar was entirely original. To minimize the neck size differences, Page had the neck of No.2 reshaped to closely resemble his No.1, ensuring it played as similarly as possible. Since then, this guitar has been a constant companion to Jimmy Page.

Tom Murphy meticulously replicated every scratch and dent of the original guitar, striving to make every detail as accurate as possible. From wood selection, appearance, and color to tonal resonance, this Les Paul replica is impeccably perfect. It is equipped with a set of BurstBucker pickups that replicate the original's sound. As with the original, there are two hidden switches under the pickguard that allow for coil splitting and series/parallel configurations, providing a richer tonal palette distinct from a typical Les Paul.

The Murphy Lab series introduced after 2021 is no longer personally crafted by Tom Murphy. Over the past decade, replicas crafted by Tom Murphy, including those for Slash, Jimmy Page, and Joe Perry, have not only retained their value but have also seen their market prices double or even triple, making them highly valuable collectibles. Enthusiasts should seize this opportunity to add such a piece to your collection.

Comes with the original Gibson hard case, original paperwork and COA.

From Gibson Custom:

The 1959 Les Paul that has come to be known as “Number Two” was purchased by Page in 1973 after trying for some time to acquire an exceptional second Les Paul. This was several years after having acquired his other legendary Les Paul—“Number One”, a ’59 ’Burst with shaved-down neck profile and no serial number—from Joe Walsh. “Number Two” was essentially all original when he acquired it though Jimmy did have some modifications done to the neck shape so that it would more nearly match the feel of his “Number One”. The neck is certainly slim but not to such extremes as the now-ultra-slim neck on “Number One”. It had a strong, beautiful sunburst finish with a red element that had faded to a dusky amber-brown, along with a clear serial number dating it to 1959. Page played this Les Paul frequently through his days with Led Zeppelin, and in the early ’80s decided to make it an even more versatile instrument and “explore the full range of what the two humbuckers have to offer”.
     
Page designed a switching system for coil splitting, series/parallel, and phase-reverse options for both pickups, and employed a skilled electronics technician to devise a working schematic and make his sonic vision a reality. The result comprised a push/pull pot on each of the guitar’s four standard controls, plus two push-button switches hidden beneath the pickguard, all mounted on a ’59 Les Paul Standard that is otherwise a superb example of the breed, both in tone and playability.
     
The Custom Shop Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul was recreated with intense, inch-by-inch examination of Page’s original guitar, inside and out. The process of getting it right involved the production of a number of hand-built prototypes, each of which was checked and critiqued in detail by Page himself. Approval of the final iteration was only offered after the legendary artist had intricately examined and extensively played this last prototype in his London home—after which it was given the thumbs-up, worthy of being the template for the Custom Shop Jimmy Page “Number Two” Les Paul. Only 325 examples will be produced in total: 100 will be aged by vintage-reproduction master Tom Murphy; 25 more will be aged by Tom Murphy and signed by Jimmy Page; and 200 will be finished to Gibson’s VOS specs.
