I'd love to hear all the details of how it was found, etc.

Speaking of long missing Black Beauties... where do you think Jimmy Page's stolen one ended up?

Don't think I'm not considering it. I need more nakedness in my life since I stopped working at Playboy.

Just amazing that it ended up back in his hands. I can't wait to read the whole story.

Now we just sit back and wait for the $20,000.00 Aged Reissue from Gibson. :)

I search and found some more pictures of it, man is it rough. Hard to tell what that kind of abuse will do to a guitar.

There are those that are skeptical. Something about inlays, parts and fret-nubs. Maybe it is.

I looked for pics and all I could find were some of his Signature model LP's that were in Nashville during the flood, those were TOAST!

This article had some interesting details I hadn't seen. This is incredible! One of the iconic instruments of my youth.

Probably the same types of people who make "sharp knees" criticisms about supermodels they see on the internet.
