The 1962 Gibson Everly Brothers Flattop was given as a gift to Jimmy Page in 1974 by Ronnie Wood, guitarist of The Face and The Rolling Stones. This guitar was used neither on stage or in the studio, merely as Page's "backstage guitar", available to him as a warm-up before gigs or to comfort him in hotel rooms.

Robert Plant was seen with it in Manticore Studios, Fulham, London, England in January 1977 as Led Zeppelin rehearsed for their 1977 US Tour.
