Jimmy Page's Gibson EDS-1275 Doubleneck Collector's Edition

Allrightie, if you’re gonna try to play Stairway to Heaven and money is of absolutely no issue, this would be the guitar to do it on. Gibson has launched a collector’s edition of the Jimmy Page EDS-1275 Doubleneck and they’ll set you back a whopping $50,000. Quite the legendary 12+6 string SG that Page played not only on Stairway to Heaven but on The Song Remains the Same, The Rain Song, Celebration Day and Tangerine as well.

Gibson’s Murphy Lab used “groundbreaking” 3D tech to scan Jimmy’s original doubleneck to be able to reproduce the ageing, making sure every detail is just as the original both hardware wise and tone and there will only be 50 guitars made in this series.

Now, if the guitar isn’t enough for those 50k you also get to know that Jimmy Page played each one of them (not entirely sure for how long), a certificate of authenticity, a wooden pick display showcasing the pick Jimmy played on that specific guitar, both a premium leather strap and a vintage replica strap, schaller strap locks, a guitar shroud and a stand for the guitar itself. Now, the latter is actually nice because it was one of the first things that struck me, what kind of stand or hanger do you actually use for these?

Considering the price tag on these it’s not surprising, but you can’t just hit a one-click buy button to get one of these after a late night out. You need to actually call Gibson in either Nashville, London or the Europe office to start the buying process (more info on that on Gibson’s website).
