Birth of the Jimmy Page Fender Telecaster
There is a fantastic story on the Dragon Telecaster. In 1961, Owen bought a 59'Telecaster with $107 and soon presented it to Jeff, who was John's bandmate in Deltones. In 1965, Jeff Beck took this electric guitar to Yardbirds as his back alternative for a Gibson Les Paul. Jeff altered the first white Bakelite pickguard of the 59 Tele into a hand made dark-colored pickguard. In August 1966 when Beck got out of Yardbirds, he presented this guitar, a comparatively valuable electric guitar in those days, to Jimmy. Jimmy had taken the Dragon Telecaster from Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin just as his main instrument. The Dragon Tele didn't diminish from eye sight until in April 1969 he obtained the "number one" Gibson Les Paul from Joe. In 1967, Page done a terrific change to this electric guitar, drawing a red, orange and green dragon on the ash body and additionally changing the pickguard into a transparent acrylic pickguard using a piece of diffraction grating film underneath. After that, the popular Dragon Telecaster was born in guitar history.
