Jimmy Page has donated seven guitars as well as stage outfits and equipment to a new museum exhibition in New York.
The equipment shown below will all be on display in the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Play It Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll” exhibition which will open on April 8. The exhibition will then move to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in November.
Ahead of the official opening of the exhibition, some photographs have emerged of Page’s gear on show.

Jimmy s playing always intrigued me glad I got to see.zeppelin when I did
I saw Jimmy play while unknown in the States in 1969 twice. He played the Tele the first time ,and the ’59 Les Paul the 2nd time. Also saw him in ’73 with the big production of Led Zep in which he played most of the guitars shown.He already had some of them for a long time.They absolutely blew away Vanilla Fudge,and any other groups that were headlining at the earliest venues. Once known,they played 3 1/2 hours with no lead in band. People came from long distances to see them when they became known. Jimmy and the whole band were so good,it is hard to explain the impression they made on dazed fans.
