Led Zeppelin Jimmy Page Twice Signed 1962 Handwritten Letter - When Jimmy Was Only 18 - Discussing Buying His Fender Amp and Gibson Guitar.

Offered here is an incredible three page, front and back, circa 1962, written and signed by Jimmy Page.

The letter was written to his American pen-pal. Filled with incredible content, Page writes to Ronnie Kellerman, head of the Jerry Lee Lewis fan club and Page's frequent correspondent. Page, a serious record collector, would trade tapes and records with Kellerman, and occasionally cut acetate discs from tapes Kellerman sent.

In this letter, Page discusses records and Jerry Lee Lewis, but most importantly says this, “I have just bought a Fender Super Amp (Only because James Burton, RIck Nelson’s guitarist is supposed to have one) it’s a K.O!! Nothing can beat the American guitars and amps to my mind. I might get a Gibson guitar instead of my Gretsch because the electrical side of the Gretsch doesn't seem to be all that good, although it’s a lovely guitar to play”.

Incredibly, this is the first mention of Jimmy Page ever getting a Gibson. It’s widely known he acquired his famous Gibson Guitar from Joe Walsh in 1969. However, this is the real mention of purchasing a Gibson guitar, back in 1962.

Another highlight of the letter reads, “When is your Birthday Ronnie you didn't let me know before? Mine is on January 9th, when I will be 19 years old. Wow, I feel like an old man”.

This letter was written when Jimmy Page was only 18 years old, far before he became the superstar that he is today.

When valuing a letter like this, collectors take into account when the letter was written, the content, and how the content relates to the writer's fame. By all of these criteria, this letter is as good as you could possibly hope for. An amazing look into the early life and career of Jimmy Page.
