Birth of the Jimmy Page Telecaster
There is a great story on the Dragon Tele guitar. In 1961, John Owen purchased a 1959 Telecaster with $107 and soon presented it to Beck, who was John Owen's bandmate in Deltones. In 1965, Jeff Beck brought this unique guitar to Yardbirds as his backup choice for a LP. Jeff Beck replaced the first white Bakelite pickguard of the 59 Telecaster into a hand-crafted black pickguard. In August 1966 when Jeff Beck departed from Yardbirds, he gave this unique guitar, a comparatively costly electric guitar at the moment, to Jimmy. Jimmy brought the Dragon Telecaster from Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin as his primary instrument. The Dragon Tele didn't diminish from eye sight until in April 1969 he got the "number one" LP from Joe Walsh. In 1967, Page performed a fantastic alteration on to this electric guitar, painting a red, orange and green dragon on the ash body and additionally replacing the pickguard into a clear acrylic pickguard with a piece of diffraction grating material underneath. Then, the well-known Dragon Tele appeared in instrument history.
