So, have you ever dreamed of sound like Guitar legend Jimmy Page? Who hasn’t. Anyway Page is giving players the chance to have his killer tone by announcing that he is about to make available a limited-edition Sundragon guitar amplifier.
It is being sold as: “a faithful recreation of the amp that Jimmy used exclusively to create the groundbreaking sounds on ‘Led Zeppelin I‘ and other notable recordings” All I can say is, even if I cant play like him, at least I’ll have his tone.
