  • Jimmy Page's Ket custom

    TGP guys can't answer this one...

    Jimmy Page played this guitar back in his Outrider days. I'm trying to find more info about it without much success. I'm particularly interested in finding out what the pickups are.

          'Cos Page looks like he's from a 80's glam band with the outfit, lightning, and guitar.

Play what you like. Tell everybody else to **************** off.

                I can't even find a reference to KET guitars?

                Where do you get the idea that this is what the guitar is?

                  I dunno...it looks like any of the other 100's of pointy headstock guitars that were around in the 1980's

                  Guitar Hero = Guy Magnet

                    From here I expect, but its the only reference google has apart from this thread and the TGP one.

                              Here is a page with some more pics. You can kind of see the pickups in some of the shots. The bridge seems to have a wide blade like single coil (looks like an SD hot stack), and the neck and middle kind of look like lipsticks, maybe in pairs...or perhaps strat sized single coils, the lighting in the pics makes it hard to see for sure. Looking at the specs the linked page gives makes me think the guy who wrote it isn't a guitar player, as it looks to be mostly wrong. Here is a better pic where you can see the pickups at least.

                              Looks like 22 fret, rosewood board, front routed strat type body. Headstock has a back angle, so no string trees. No locking nut, and what looks like a vintage style trem. Strat jack and knobs and strat blade switch. Two (?) microswitches near the blade selector to control hair spray dispensers (?). Bridge looks like a SD hot stack, or the 80's equivalent. Middle and front look like either lipsticks or double blade mini humbuckers (like hot rails, for example).
