The guitar that Jimmy Page played at Roy Harper's 70th birthday celebration on November 5, 2011 was a Martin D-28 Marquis model based on the pre-war D28, selected at the Martin guitar factory by Paul Sinclair, JR Warner, and Paul Hammond. JR Warner had contacted Paul Sinclair and Paul Hammond as a result of their involvement with the American Led Zeppelin cover band Get The Led Out, as he knew their knowledge of all things Led Zeppelin and Hammond's knowledge of high-end guitars would help him create a surprise gift to mark Page's 63rd birthday on Jan. 9, 2007. Martin's custom shop did the custom inlay work at their request.

JR Warner had booked the trip to deliver the guitar over the Thanksgiving holiday in the states and Martin came through in having it ready to go in time. JR Warner booked an extra seat on the British Airways flight for the guitar.
