Like Peter Frampton's Gibson Black Beauty, Jimmy Page's own Bigsby B7-loaded model was thought lost forever. Page had played the 1960 guitar on many of his pre-Led Zeppelin sessions in the 1960s and it made a rare appearance at Zeppelin's Royal Albert Hall live show in January 1970.

But the guitar was reported stolen from an airport in April 1970 and was presumed lost. Bigsby.com claimed a few weeks back the guitar had been tracked down and returned to Page with the help of renowned collector Perry Margouleff. The story has now been validated by former Led Zeppelin roadie Henry 'The Horse' Smith, who confirmed the news via a Facebook Q&A:

“Glad to announce the Black Beauty is now back in the hands of Jimmy thanks in part to Perry Margouleff," Smith stated. "This happened just a few months ago. It was a happy day for me to see Jimmy get this back.”

Page has had other Bigsby-loaded “Black Beauties” over the years, but if this is truly the original that helped him find fame, it's something of a special reunion.
