- Legendary Led Zeppelin founder and guitarist Jimmy Page approached Fender to recreate his “dragon” Telecaster from the band’s early years.
- Working with Fender master builder Paul Waller, Page matched the original artwork, which he painted in the late 1960s.
- Page played the original 1959 Telecaster when he was in the Yardbirds and on the first Led Zeppelin album, released 50 years ago.
- To celebrate the anniversary, 50 dragon Teles will be manufactured, as well as 50 recreations of an earlier Page modification to his ’59, with mirrors applied. All will bear Page’s signature and come with special cases and accessories.
