    Joe Walsh with Jimmy Pages number one burst before he sold it to him. Pictures.

    Nugent's TWO bursts up for auction

    Binky Phillips bought Rick Derringer's burst in the early 70's and 5 years or so later had Jeff Beck 'carve' his signature on the back with a bic pen... so the story goes.

    Does Page's #2 have double whites?

    496-500s pups - bad rap!

    I just finished working out on my 2006 Classic. It's got the ceramic pups - 496 and 500, which sound superb to me. They're plenty hot indeed when I attack it, but there is much warmth and softness too. Plenty of jangle when dialed in. I play through a Fender Twin, a Randall RX120, a little...
