This statement is just blowing my mind. I’m a distant and devout disciple of Page and I had no idea of the linkage to him. My #1 guitar is Veronica which is a ‘14 “standard“ Historic 1960 reissue LPS. The guitar sounds epic even among my other LPs. I’ve got four sets of CBs including those in a True Historic 1960 LPS, a ‘61 335 reisue and a stray pair I bought off the TGP emporium.Really the Custombucker development was a sonic pursuit by Edwin Wilson based on the pickups in Jimmy Page's #1. It was not so much a historically-accurate PAF clone project as it was a tone quest, and in my opinion Edwin nailed it.
It just makes sense I‘d love Custombuckers considering the massive impact Page has had on my playing and my life. Edwin Wilson is a new hero. Well done!!
