    Nice guitar. What are the differences of Jimmy Page pickups or let's say is the sound different than typical/standard telecasters?

    Congrats, very cool! People forget that back in the beginning Jimmy Page's main ax was a Fender Telecaster, when he was playing with the Yardbirds and the first few Led Zeppelin albums. Hope you enjoy the new Tele!

    This is my first Tele. The specs on the pickups say they are voiced like a 1959 but a bit hotter. They also have a vitage construction, the windings have white string and enamel wrapped around them instead of the tape you see on modern pickups. Kind of neat.I really like the sound. They growl and clean up really nice.

    I really like the neck as well. The 7.25" radius really forces me to be accurate in my fingering.

    I always wanted a Tele and ever since I saw a video of Jimmy playing Dazed and Confused on his , I wanted one like it.

    I am not disappointed!

    That's Zep on Danish television. Great early show. I don't think the kids had any idea of the magnitude of what they were witnessing
