Jimmy Page & Guitar Center Team Up for Charity Auction

Legendary Led Zepplin guitarist Jimmy Page has joined forces with Guitar Center to support the charitable organizations Little Kids Rock and USO.
On June 19, Guitar Center will kick off its first-ever charity auction hosted on eBay.
Visit ebay.com/jimmypagelespaul to check it out. It features two high-end, collectible Jimmy Page replica guitars.
These guitars are replicas of Page's most prized guitar: a 1959 Les Paul, lovingly nicknamed "Number Two," obtained by Page in the early 1970s and used consistently ever since.
Four years ago, Gibson Custom recreated "Number Two" –not that kinda No. 2-- in an extremely limited run built to Page's exact specifications, faithfully replicating everything down to the dings, dents and wear marks. Only 25 were released worldwide.
It's like a reproduction of a piece of history.
Jimmy kept No. 1 for himself and the remaining 24 instantly became highly valued collector's items. After half-decade, Guitar Center is opening the vault and offering number #2 and #5 for this special charity auction.
The minimum bid is $20,000 for each guitar and proceeds will benefit Little Kids Rock and USO. Not only will the winning bid take home a piece of musical history and a highly prized instrument signed by a Rock Legend, but they will have the opportunity to make a difference for two extremely worthy organizations.
Great guitar, better cause.
