Jimmy Page used a number of guitars during his illustrious career but his Tele tone has a mythical reputation. And now you're able to get those powerful and twangy tones yourself!
The Jimmy Page Mirror Tele is the perfect blend between vintage spec, modern build and classic tones. It's got a custom designed Slim D shaped neck that you can really wrap your hands around with a vintage 7.25" radius. The 2-piece ash body sings and sustains like a dream.
The pickups are red-hot '59 single coils that will cut through the mix and give you plenty of muscle whilst still retaining the twang-factor that you'd expect from any vintage Tele.
One of the more interesting things about the top-loader bridge is that you can choose to put the strings through the body as you normally would or through the back of the bridge plate. This gives you less tension and makes the strings easier to bend.
The mirror Tele is an iconic guitar in the world of Rock N Roll and fortunately, you can choose to emulate Page by having the mirrors on or off. These mirrors come with the guitar but are not installed and don't have to be on the guitar.
Here's what Fender say about the Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster
When the opening riff of "Good Times Bad Times" came through the radio in 1969, everything changed. At that moment Jimmy Page cemented his legacy and altered the course of popular music with a single guitar: his Fender Telecaster. The Fender Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster is a homage to that guitar, which began life in its factory White Blonde lacquer finish, then became the "mirror guitar" before transforming into a one-of-a-kind hand-painted instrument. At each stage in its evolution, this legendary guitar produced some of the most iconic riffs of the 20th Century.
The Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster features a two-piece ash body, lacquer finish and a pair of Jimmy Page Custom '59 Tele single-coil pickups that deliver the incendiary, full-bodied tone that inspired all the unforgettable licks on Led Zeppelin's first album. The custom " Thin D"-shaped maple neck has a 7.25"-radius slab rosewood fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets, giving it a smooth playing feel. The "top-loader" bridge allows for through-body or top-load stringing, which produces a rounder, warmer tone and less tension so you can bend the strings with ease. Other features include a bone nut vintage-style round string tree and Pure Vintage Single Line " Fender Deluxe" tuning machines for authentic style and performance.
Created alongside Page himself, the Jimmy Page Mirror Telecaster also boasts some personalized touches like a Jimmy Page signature on the headstock and on the custom chrome neck plate. Included in the vintage tweed case are eight round mirrors (a tribute to the custom treatment Page later applied to the guitar), a black coiled cable, vintage-style " stained glass" strap and a custom Certificate of Authenticity. About his beloved Telecaster, Jimmy said it best: "I really made it my own – it’s quite a magical guitar."
