Founded over 100 years ago, Gibson electric guitars have become the most distinctive guitar designs on the market, and responsible for those riffs you've heard by some of the worlds most influential guitarists. You'll hear the sounds of a Gibson Guitar on the most classic rock songs, that coincidentally feature on the greatest albums of all time, from the likes of B.B King and Led Zepplin to jazz greats Howard Roberts and Herb Ellis.
Gibson guitars represent the history as well as the future of the electric guitar. Those models whose designs have become classics- the ES-175, ES-335, Flying V, Explorer, Firebird, Acoustics, SGs and Les Pauls-are all a testament to Gibson's wide appeal which spans over more than four decades.
As any Led Zeppelin fanatic knows, Jimmy Page is one of the greatest guitarists of our time, and has become the icon for Gibson's Les Paul guitars. Early in Jimmy Pages career, one of his most relied upon guitars was the three-pickup 1960 Les Paul Custom "Black Beauty", #1 Les Paul 1958 Model and his #2 Les Paul 1959 Model.
If the ’70s was the decade of the great guitar riff, then Jimmy Page was its master craftsman. Steeped in the work of the great American blues players, and with years of session experience to draw from, Page packed Led Zeppelin’s albums with some of the heaviest, hardest and most melodic riffs ever committed to tape.
No doubt countless young players picked up a Les Paul – or perhaps even an SG double-neck – as a result of hearing and seeing Page.
