Jimmy Page Telecaster�, Rosewood Fingerboard, Natural S/N MXN01650 8.22lb A guitar which in many ways is as much as an icon as the player who used it. Out of all the guitars we have for sale at Bonners, I don�t think any have a back story like the new Fender Jimmy Page Telecaster. With that in mind, I thought the best place to start was to strip the guitar right back to what it is, or at least what it was... A 1959 Fender Telecaster. 1959 was a bit of an important year for the Fender Telecaster, it was the year that Fender swapped the 1 piece Maple neck to a slab Rosewood fingerboard on a Maple neck. The guitar would have shipped out with an Ash body with a Blonde finish, a white pickguard and a top loader bridge. The Jimmy Page Telecaster stays true to this with its Ash body and slab Rosewood fingerboard. The neck shape is specifically shaped to be just like Jimmys and the pickups are perfectly wound to match his original Tele. The Myth, The Dragon The Tele was originally owned by Jeff Beck who gave it to Page in 1966 as a thank you gift for helping him out during his early career as a musician. In 1967, possibly inspired by Syd Barret of Pink Floyd, Page decided to stick 8 circular mirrors to the body of the guitar to help create a psychedelic effect when on stage and the lights were beaming on it. Within only a few months Page had grown tired of this look and decided that he would remove the mirrors as well as the Blonde finish. Once completely stripped he decided that he would paint the Tele himself loosely in the style of a Japanese Dragon. To finish his new design off he decided to replace the pickguard with a transparent acrylic one with a sheet of diffraction grating film behind it. This unique idea caused a spectrum of colour to shine from the guitar when hit with light. The Telecaster had been completely transformed into something that was much more than just a guitar. Referred by Jimmy as his Magical Guitar, it was used as his main guitar throughout 1968 and 69 live and in the studio until one of its pickups failed and it was replaced with his Les Paul. The Dragon Tele was famously taken out of retirement in 1970 for the solo of Stairway to Heaven. Shortly after, the Tele was ruined by a friend of Jimmy�s who thought he was doing him a favour by painting over the Dragon design. During this process, the electronics were also damaged. The famous telecaster would not be seen again until 2019 when Jimmy Page approached fender with a request to recreate the legend. Top Loader An important but often forgotten about feature of a 1959 Fender Telecaster is the Top Loader Bridge. Instead of the traditional string-through the Body design of the telecaster, the strings are instead threaded through the back of the bridge plate. This ever so slightly changes the tone of the instrument as the strings don�t actually have any direct contact with the wood of the body. Many describe it as a more bright and snappy tone. With this design, the strings are also ever so slightly shortened which actually causes slightly less tension on the string. Retro Accessories Included with this psychedelic Tele is a luxurious 60s style black Tolex hard case, a bright red retro coily cable and a white vintage styled strap. All you need to finish this 60s inspired rig is an old Marshall or Supro amp cranked to 10. Part Exchange Your Guitar Looking to cash something in exchange for your Jimmy Page Telecaster?
