Jimmy Page’s Telecaster is the stuff of legend: over 50 years ago, it changed the sound of rock forever as the main guitar on Led Zeppelin’s debut.

Originally given to him by Jeff Beck, the ’59 Telecaster first saw use by Page in The Yardbirds and, in 1967, the future guitar hero sought to dazzle audiences by fitting eight round mirrors to the body, a look that Fender recreated in their Mirror Telecaster reissues a couple of years ago.
