  • Gibson Les Paul LOVERS!!! Led Zeppelin Related Question

    Hi. Just a quick question to you guitar players fortunate enough to own a Gibson Les Paul, how do I get the perfect stairway to heaven tone using a Gibson Les Paul playing through a Marshall DSL-50? The same tone in the video bellow. I can get fairly close, but other than that, nothing. Thanks

    The video won't play for me as my laptop is awful but from what I remember it's quite a treble-based intro
    If it is the intro you're talking about then i'd suggest setting the treble on the amp to about 7, the reverb to around 6 (as it's quite reverby) and then cranking the tone to 10 on your LP on the bridge pickup

      Jimmy Page also recorded it using a Les Paul that used P90 pick ups.

        I was told that he actually recorded it using an SG, though how right that is, I can't be sure, I "think" it was Justin Adams (Robert Plant band) that told me, but I can't remember whether he said "he knew" or he thought". But, playing it the same way as Jimmy, and actually sounding like Jimmy would be two very different things..

          I cannot thank you enough for your advice, I'm much closer to getting the perfect tone. Thanks a million!!!

          This video might answers the question "did Page recorded Stairway using the double neck?". He says he wanted more texture and the double neck was a "perfect compromise". So I believe he did use the double neck to record Stairway To Heaven.

            Ahh, so it was an SG then...and either way, what a player and surely Zep are the absolute, ultimate band...
