59 les paul


Jimmy Page’s now-deceased “Dragon” Telecaster. Acquired from that other Yardbird’s guy, this guitar was probably a ‘59 or ‘60, given the rosewood fretboard. Page used Dragon for the first album and did record the solo from Stairway with it. Obviously we all know Page is forever iconified with the ‘59 Les Paul (scarfed from Joe Walsh), but hey, he’s a Tele guy. 
Sadly, Dragon is no longer with us. Page’s “friend” decided to re-paint it for him while he was on tour with the ‘59 Les Paul and messed up the wiring and sound. Page used the Dragon Telecaster’s neck on one of his other Tele’s and apparently has hidden the body forever.
