Jimmy Page talks about the guitar he used for "Whole Lotta Love" in [this interview with the Wall Street Journal](http://www.wsj.com/articles/the-making-of-led-zeppelins-whole-lotta-love-1401390281), saying, "To get my guitar to sound surreal, I detuned it and pulled on the strings for a far-out effect. I was playing a Sunburst 1958 Les Paul Standard guitar I had bought from [James Gang guitarist] [Joe Walsh](https://equipboard.com/pros/joe-walsh) in San Francisco when we were out there on tour. The Standard had this tonal versatility, allowing me to get a blistering high pitch."more
This is the guitar that Duane is perhaps best known for. He got it from ZZ-Top’s Billy Gibbons in June 1971, and recorded with it on “Eat a Peach” and The Allman Brothers at Fillmore East albums. After Duane’s death, this guitar remained with his brother Greg, who eventually traded it with Twiggs Lyndon, who kept it untill his death. It is now back in the possession of Duane’s family.more

Les Paul plays...well a Les Paul! Founder and creator of Gibson's most famous guitar, Les Paul does an interview with [*Biography*](http://www.biography.com/people/les-paul-9435046) where they write "Les Paul designed a solid-body electric guitar in 1941, but by the time it was ready for production by Gibson in 1952, Leo Fender had already mass-produced the Fender Broadcaster four years earlier, thus beating Paul to popular credit for the invention. Nonetheless, the Les Paul acquired a devoted following, and its versatility and balance made it the favored guitar of many rock guitarists."more

Luke Weiler of Positive Mental Trip played a Les Paul as one of his main guitars before, during, and after the east coast solo loop tours. You might see videos or pictures of Luke playing a les Paul during the 2007-2010 PMT era. Mostly due to spine issues luke played a Fender VG American Stratocaster during the 2011-2017 Positive Mental Trip era. (Stratocasters barely weigh anything compared to a les Paul if you play it 8 hours a day) However during almost all the “Love Never Dies” album recording sessions in 2019 videos have surfaced of Luke playing a Les Paul again. It is said to be a “Walt B Les Paul Custom” in multiple guitar videos on YouTube. It doesn’t look like it has a Gibson headstock... but it looks and sounds exactly like a Gibson Les Paul. Walt B is a guitarist from CT sponsored by PHRED guitars and plays 2 different WOLPH Guitars with OBEL systems. https://shop.phredinstruments.com/artist-spotlight-walt-berger We found a bio on “Walt B” on the PHRED Instruments website. It appears he may have hand made this “WALT B Les Paul Custom” for Luke to play on the “Love Never Dies” album specifically to get Luke a nice Les Paul Guitar sound. It doesn’t seem like(going by YouTube videos of recording sessions and guitar sound chronicles) Luke has played any other electric guitar in 2019 except possibly the 09’ SG Standard.more
