Fender Reveals Full Details of Jimmy Page Signature Telecasters

Hot on the heels of Jimmy Page's announcement of his brand-new Sundragon amp, Fender has revealed the full details of the Jimmy Page Signature Telecasters.

Throughout 2019, Fender will release a total of four Artist Signature guitars modeled after Page's 1959 Fender Telecaster. In 1967, Page affixed eight circular mirrors on the original Tele's body, before stripping it entirely and painting his own psychedelic dragon pattern in bright colors. (It was 1967, after all.)

He'd go on to play that guitar for the majority of Led Zeppelin's debut album, as well as plenty of other times on stage and in the studio—notably for the solo on "Stairway to Heaven."

Fender's Jimmy Page Telecaster models will include two Custom Shop guitars and two standard production runs:

  • The Jimmy Page Dragon Telecaster, one of two Custom Shop models, will be available in March for $25,000.
  • The Jimmy Page Mirrored Telecaster, which completes what Fender is calling the "Limited Edition Jimmy Page Telecaster Set," will also be available in March for $25,000.
  • The Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster, as a standard production run, will be available in Spring 2019, for a much more affordable $2,499.99. Unlike the mirror-adorned Custom Shop model, the standard Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster has only a White Blonde lacquer finish.
  • The Jimmy Page Telecaster reproduces Page's iconic artwork, while giving the guitar vintage-appropriate features like a custom "Oval C"-shaped neck that matches the original Tele's neck profile and a 7.25" fretboard radius. It's also the cheapest of the models, at $1,399.99, and will be available Summer 2019.

The standard production models are available for pre-order now.
