Jimmy Page’s Rickenbacker Transonic

Jimmy Page used these amps during the first American tour with Led Zeppelin. Apparently, he didn’t particularly like the amps, and he left most of them in the US after the tour.

There’s a rumor going around that he used a Rickenbacker Transonic to record “Heartbreaker”, but according to Page himself, he used a Les Paul/Marshall stack combination.
