Few guitars are as important to the history of rock as the Telecaster Jimmy Page used to create the iconic, genre-defining riffs of Led Zeppelin. Originally received as an undecorated gift from Jeff Beck, he used this 1959 Telecaster to unleash his larger-than-life riffage and fierce soloing upon the world. In February 1967, possibly inspired by Pink Floyd's Syd Barrett, he added eight round mirrors to the body of the guitar.
By mid-1967 he decided to remove the mirrors, strip the instrument down to bare wood and, drawing on his art school training, repaint it himself. Page partially painted over the stripped 1959 Telecaster with darts and curls of green, orange, yellow, blue and red in a pattern that formed something of a swirling, psychedelic, vaguely Japanese dragon. The beast's flaming red horns and green head rest inside the blunt upper horn, green scales run down its neck as it breaks into a colourful abstraction that could include a cracked egg near the control panel and a tail that snakes into the upper bout from the lower.
To recreate these legendary instruments, Master Builder Paul Waller and Page collaborated in person to ensure each guitar of these 50 sets perfectly match the originals. Page visited the Custom Shop in Corona, CA and personally signed each neck of the Jimmy Page Mirrored Telecaster.
This set of 2 Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Paul Waller Jimmy Page Telecasters is the ultimate collectors piece and sell as a pair, not individually.
