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](http://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
