Originally borrowed from Big Jim Sullivan (or producer Mickey Most, depending on which Jimmy Page interview you read), Jimmy Page used the Gibson J-200 Flattop for the songs Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Your Time Is Gonna Come and Black Mountain Side on Led Zeppelin.

It was seen on camera for White Summer/Black Mountain Side on the Julie Felix Show on Apr. 26, 1970.

The Gibson J-200 was eventually stolen, presumably after it was returned to its original owner.
