Gibson has announced a new signature guitar partnership with Jimmy Page, which will reportedly encompass multiple models, beginning with a Custom Shop recreation of his 1971 Gibson EDS-1275 double neck.

The electric guitar is synonymous with Page and is sometimes incorrectly assumed to have been conceived especially for him. However, it was actually launched in 1963 and had in fact been discontinued by the time the Led Zeppelin icon started to play them.
