Fender guitars are one of the most well-known musical instruments on the planet dating back to 1946. Guitarist Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin said “I believe every guitar player inherently has something unique about their playing. They just have to identify what makes them different and develop it”.
Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) “just recently collaborated with one of rock’s most legendary guitar players – Jimmy Page – to recreate his famous 1959 Fender Telecaster 50 years after Led Zeppelin formed in October 1968. Among music’s most iconic guitars is Jimmy Page’s Telecaster, known for its two “mirror” and “dragon” designs. It helped launch Page’s career in The Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin, and the guitar was used to record Led Zeppelin I along with countless hit songs on world-renowned albums. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin and Page’s storied career as a guitar icon, Fender will release four artist signature guitar models throughout 2019, giving fans and collectors the chance to own a piece of history. Two models will be made on Fender’s production lines, and two will be produced in the Fender Custom Shop – dubbed the “Limited Edition Jimmy Page Telecaster Set.”
“With an illustrious history dating back to 1946, Fender has touched and transformed music worldwide and in nearly every genre: rock ‘n’ roll, country and western, jazz, rhythm and blues and many others.

It is our vision to continue championing THE SPIRIT OF ROCK-N-ROLL® throughout the world and our mission to exceed the expectations of music enthusiasts worldwide,” states Fender.
