The Pagey Project Phase 2 and postscript

I know things have been really Les Paully around here lately (don’t worry: despite how much fun I’m having with this amazing Les Paul, I’m still addicted to my Ibanii, my Taylor, my Buddy Blaze 7-string and my Fender ’62 Strat reissue), but here’s something else you might dig, regardless of which two-humbucker axe you may sling: Joe Gore’s Pagey Project.

Here’s part 1, in which Gore wires up his Les Paul with the wildly flexible Jimmy Page setup.

Here’s part 2, in which things get way crazy with Triple Shot mounting rings and a germanium overdrive.

And here’s the postscript, wherein we learn what happens next!

Seymour Duncan: Wolf Tones, plus Jimmy Page wiring!

So here’s something I’m really proud of: Seymour Duncan has just made me their Assistant Social Media Coordinator. As part of the job, I get to write cool blog posts like this one about the problem of ‘wolf tones.’ You might also dig this Tone Fiend article by Joe Gore about the versatile and mysterious Jimmy Page-style Les Paul wiring. If you’ve got a Les Paul or similar, give it a try! I know I will when I eventually buy a Les Paul (like this Les Paul Traditional in Iced Tea).

By the way, the pickups in the photo above are the Gus G FIRE Blackouts in my battered old Ibanez RG370. I really dig how these pickups have given the guitar a new lease on life (along with a killer fret job from Soxy Music). See my review of them here.

COOL VIDEO ALERT: Jimmy Page jams with Donovan

Both of these gentlemen are quite near and dear to my heart so it’s awesome to see them on stage together (at the Royal Albert Hall on June 3, 2011).

Peter Hodgson Hi! I'm Peter Hodgson. I write for Gibson.com, Australian Guitar, Australian Musician, Mixdown Magazine (including my instructional column, 'Unleash Your Inner Rock God,' which has been running since 2007), BluntBeat (including their weekly hard rock/metal column Crunch) and The Brag. And I'm Assistant Social Coordinator with Seymour Duncan. I've been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and I've been writing for magazines since I was 18. I've also worked as a guitar teacher (up to 50 students a week), a setup tech, a newspaper editor, and I've also dabbled in radio a little bit. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and my hobbies include drinking way too much coffee, and eating way too much Mexican food.
