Few guitars are as important to the history of rock as the Telecaster Jimmy Page used to create the iconic, genre-defining riffs of Led Zeppelin. Originally received as an undecorated gift from Jeff Beck, he used this 1959 Telecaster to unleash his larger-than-life riffage and fierce soloing upon the world. In February 1967, possibly inspired by Pink Floyd’s Syd Barrett, he added eight round mirrors to the body of the guitar. By mid-1967 he decided to remove the mirrors, strip the instrument down to bare wood and, drawing on his art school training, repaint it himself. To recreate this legendary instrument, Master Builder Paul Waller and Page collaborated in person to ensure each guitar of these 50 sets perfectly matches the original. Page visited our Custom Shop in Corona, CA and personally signed each neck of the Jimmy Page Mirrored Telecaster. We’re both pleased and proud to present this limited set of reproductions, honoring the man, his music and the instrument he used to create it.
Painstakingly hand-built by Waller under Page’s eager, direct supervision, every component of these stellar guitars matches the original’s. The off-center-seam two-piece ash body hosts a period-accurate lacquer finish (with the mirrors applied, of course!) along with a pair of Custom Shop Hand-Wound 58 single-coil pickups, routed through modern Tele® wiring and a 3-position pickup switch. The tinted maple neck’s “Oval C” profile is comfortable for almost any playing style, and precisely matches the profile of Page’s original instrument, so you can enjoy the same playing feel he has for decades. The 7.25”-radius rosewood fingerboard matches the specs of the era, right down to the 21 vintage-sized frets. Other features include a custom 8-hole single-ply White pickguard, 59 top-load Tele bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree with metal spacer. Includes a vintage-style tweed hardshell case, black coiled cable, Ace “Stained Glass” strap, Herco® guitar picks and Certificate of Authenticity.
Although this is a collector’s item it’s still an exact recreation of the original guitar, so if you get the itch to plug in and crank it up you will have the guitar’s legendary tone and vibe on tap.
