He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, as a member of The Yardbirds and also as a member of Led Zeppelin.Jimmy Page is an English guitarist, composer and record producer. Jimmy Page has been described as “unquestionably one of the all-time most influential, important, and versatile guitarists and songwriters in rock history.”

Throughout Jimmy Page’s long career he’s played through a ton of different rigs and setups.  Some of the most memorable for me were seeing him with his Les Paul through some huge Marshall and Orange stacks.  I remember watching their live concert on video over and over again until the tape wore out! Let’s take a look at some the Led Zeppelin era equipment.
