For Sale: Vini Reilly's Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Signature Model guitar 
Vini Reilly has decided to sell his Gibson Les Paul Jimmy Page Signature Model guitar.

Its colour is 'Pageburst' which is a beautiful subtle caramel sunburst, with 'burstbucker' pick-ups specially designed by Gibson in conjunction with Jimmy Page himself.

All hardware is gold-plated as standard and the guitar comes with a scratchplate signed by Jimmy Page as well as a certificate and the original hard case.

Its condition is immaculate with only minimal signs of use as Vini is pretty meticulous with his instruments and it is supplied with the original Gibson hard case. This guitar has been used on the last three albums by The Durutti Column as well as live work and sessions for various Radio commitments.

New, these guitars list at GBP 5000 and they were not a mass-produced Les Paul model. Vini will consider any offers around GBP 3,750. Additionally he will meet the buyer in person for lunch in Manchester when collecting.

A Certain Ratio

"Manchester, 1978. In the beginning there were four: Jez Kerr (bass), Martin Moscrop (guitar/trumpet), Peter Terrel (guitar/effects) and Simon Topping (vocals/trumpet). Four thin boys with a name borrowed from a Brian Eno record, the intense, drummerless quartet initially drew influence from Wire, Eno, the Velvets and Kraftwerk, and gained a manager in Anthony Wilson of Factory Records.

"May 1979 saw the release of their first ACR single, the dark All Night Party, although the sound and musicianship of the band would be transformed by the arrival of funky drummer Donald Johnson (DoJo) in August. Over the next few months the band gigged widely, often with Joy Division as part of Factory packages, and recorded demos with producer Martin Hannett as well as a Peel session. Their support slot with Talking Heads on their UK tour in December 1979 set David Byrne on a new course, and provided the compelling live half of their chic cassette package The Graveyard and the Ballroom. Post-punk, ACR now reflected the influence of Funkadelic, George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, The Bar Kays and James Brown."
