Jimmy Page Dragon Telecaster demo :
Birth of the Jimmy Page Fender
There is certainly a wonderful story about the Dragon Tele guitar. In 1961, John bought a 59'Tele with $107 and soon gave it to Beck, who was John's bandmate in Deltones. In 1965, Jeff Beck took this instrument to Yardbirds just as his backup alternative for a Gibson LP. Jeff altered the original white Bakelite pickguard of the 1959 Tele into a hand-made black pickguard. In August 1966 when Jeff abandoned Yardbirds, he handed this guitar, a relatively expensive guitar at that time, to Jimmy. Jimmy Page took the Dragon Telecaster from Yardbirds to Led Zeppelin as his principal guitar. The Dragon Tele did not fade out from vision until in April 1969 he got the "number one" Gibson LP from Joe. In 1967, Jimmy done a terrific alteration to this electric guitar, drawing a green, orange and red dragon on the ash body and replacing the black pickguard with a transparent acrylic pickguard with a sheet of diffraction grating film underneath. Then, the well-known Dragon Tele appeared in electric guitar history.

The initial pickguard was mentioned to be a transparent pickguard with a foil under it to produce a mirror effect. But the foil has a tendency to darken as time passes, thus we provide a mirror pickguard to obtain an ideal effect, and it looks a lot closer towards the genuine electric guitar.
