Jimmy Page's Musical Career
Jimmy Page (born 9 January 1944) is an English guitarist, songwriter, and record producer. He began his career as a studio session guitarist in London and was subsequently a member of The Yardbirds from 1966 to 1968, after which he founded the English rock band Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page is viewed by critics, fans and fellow musicians alike as one of the most influential and important guitarists and songwriters in rock music. Rolling Stone magazine has described him as "the pontiff of power riffing". In 2010, Jimmy Page was ranked number two in Gibson's list of "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time", and in 2007, number four on Classic Rock Magazine's "100 Wildest Guitar Heroes". Page was ranked third in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2011. He has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice; once as a member of The Yardbirds (1992), and once as a member of Led Zeppelin (1995).
A Brief Introducation to the Dragon Telecaster
Here is the quick history on Jimmy Page’s famous “Dragon” Telecaster. Jimmy played a 1959 telecaster that Jimmy inherited from Jeff Beck. Jeff left the guitar behind when he left the Yardbirds. Jimmy stripped off the blonde finish and repainted the guitar and put a green, red, and orange dragon image on the front. The Dragon Telecaster would make its last live appearance in front of an audience on May 3, 1969 at a show in Pasadena, California at the Rose Palace. The guitar would make a dramatic comeback, a sort of swan song if you will on Led Zeppelin's most well known work, "Stairway to Heaven" where Page used it to record the dramatic solo near the end of the song.
Features of Our Jimmy Page Tele with Gloss Finish
Our products were created totally in accordance with the actual construction and data, the form and measurements and all other parts are just the same as the original guitar. The body is created of ash wood, just the identical as the authentic Dragon Tele, together with rosewood fretboard and maple neck.
The headstock of the original Jimmy Page Tele with Gloss Finish is a Fender 1959' telecaster headstock, however for unidentified purpose; Jimmy Page cleaned the original logo away, so we've got no logo upon the headstock of our replicated instrument.
The original pickguard was stated to be a see-through pickguard using a aluminum foil below it to create a mirror effect. But the foil has a tendency to darken as time passes, therefore we offer you a mirror pickguard to obtain a perfect effect, and it seems to be much nearer to the original guitar.
The pick-ups of the original Jimmy Page Tele with Gloss Finish are Fender single-coil pickups, and we can offer other various brands such as Wilkinson and Fender along with other single-coil pick-ups from low end to high-end solutions.
We have to show that as for the finish, the actual dragon design was drawn by Jimmy himself, and ours were hand painted by our professional luthiers. When compared with Jimmy Page, we wouldn't be much better than master Jimmy Page, but we are confident the artwork is at least as the same, if not far better than, with the actual electric guitar. In addition, most people thought there's no hand-draw dragon in the back of guitar. But if you like the dragon also appeared on the back, we are able to complete it according to your personal desire.This Jimmy Page Tele with Gloss Finish has some truly great features for the right price.
