WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, 5 April 2007 — Guitar Center (Nasdaq:GTRC), the nation’s leading music instrument retailer, has again made its mark on musical history by selling out serial numbers #003-011 of the extremely limited edition Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page 1275 “Aged” Double Neck Electric Guitar. The announcement was made by Michael Doyle, Guitar Center Vice President of Product Marketing, and immediately followed last night’s “Gibson Platinum Nights” held at GC’s Hollywood, Manhattan, Nashville, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, Rockville, Atlanta and San Jose stores. Nine of the incredible “Aged” guitars were offered to customers who won the option to purchase at a random drawing held at these GC Platinum locations. The guitars, each individually signed and played by Jimmy Page, were “scooped up” by eager aficionados at $30,000.00 each.

Carefully recreated by the craftsmen at the Gibson Custom Shop, each handcrafted reissue of the Jimmy Page 1275 Double Neck Electric Guitar is modeled on Jimmy’s personal instrument. From the shape of the neck to the long-string-pull tailpiece, no detail was overlooked. Even the pickups were painstakingly analyzed by the Gibson luthiers to duplicate their unique sound.

Features include mahogany body, mahogany necks with Madagascar rosewood fretboards and pearloid split parallelogram inlays, 2 specially-designed Gibson Jimmy Page humbuckers, ABR-1 style bridge, double-band vintage-style tuners, a custom Gibson hardshell case and certificate of authenticity.

Two models are available: the Jimmy Page 1275 VOS Double Neck Electric Guitar (250 worldwide) and the extremely limited “Aged” version (26 worldwide). The “Aged” instruments feature all the same specifications as the VOS model, plus each one has been personally played and signed by Jimmy Page and comes with a leather collector’s binder with complete documentation. The Jimmy Page 1275 “Aged” Double Neck Electric Guitars were so meticulously crafted, that Jimmy Page kept #001 for his own personal use.

In addition to the nine Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page 1275 “Aged” Double Neck Electric Guitars which were offered at GC’s Gibson Platinum Nights, two more of these exclusive instruments were sold at the same time through www.guitarcenter.com.

One of the most highly identifiable guitars in rock history, Jimmy Page originally sought out a double neck when the Led Zeppelin IV album was completed and it was clear that “Stairway to Heaven” would have to be played live. To keep pace with the changes of the song, there would be no time to change between 6- and 12-string guitars. The Gibson double neck worked out so well that Jimmy used it on other Led Zeppelin songs, including “The Rain Song,” “Celebration Day” and “The Song Remains the Same. ”

The Gibson Custom Shop Jimmy Page 1275 VOS Double Neck Electric Guitar is currently available in very limited quantities for $7999.99 from Guitar Center locations nationwide.
