In terms of players, and tone, they don't come much more iconic than Jimmy Page. Best known, of course, for his work with Led Zeppelin, as well as The Yardbirds, The Firm and The Black Crowes, Jimmy Page has paved the way for an enormous range of players and genres that have followed in his wake.
Because of this, it would be safe to assume that everyone who picks up a guitar at some point has tried to replicate his tone and his style, and it's easy to understand why. From the raucous Telecaster tones in The Yardbirds and early Led Zeppelin, to his now synonymous Les Paul tones covering later Led Zeppelin albums, the elements of his tone and playing have always been sought after.
In this video, Jack breaks down how each of these two guitars impact Page's tone and what they bring individually to the famous 'Zeppelin' sound. We have chosen the Fender Custom Shop Jimmy Page Signature Telecaster, for obvious reasons, as well as a Gibson Custom 60th Anniversary '60 Les Paul V3 Washed Bourbon Burst - it's widely believed that Page used a '59, but be sure to watch throughout the video where Jack will explain our reasoning for choosing the '60...
We're covering Jimmy Page in two parts, the second part will be on Jacks own channel shortly so make sure to keep an eye out for that! (We will update this description with a link soon!)
