That's the story. Page acquired a Gibson EDS 1275 to perform all his live 12 string stuff, but the Zep recordings are layered with 1965 Fender Electric XII. Stairway is one thing, but "when The Levee Breaks" is another. To me that tune is one of the greatest recordings ever. Tuned in a double F Major Triad, F-A-C-F-A-C, the guitar (a 12 string Fender) has one one mean tone. While some many associate Page with a Les Paul, Telecaster, and the Gibson Double Neck, his use of the Fender XII is truly intriguing and amazing to say the least. I believe there are two known Zeppelin concerts where the performance of When The Levee Breaks was attempted. Then never again. The strange thing is Zrp performed the tune in G where it was recorded in F. For what reason did they perform the tune in G? And for what reason did Page and company not make more of an effort at performing one the greatest rock recordings of all time? Page's story is that it was too hard to pull off Levee live. Otherwise, the poor Fender Electric XII, manufactured for only four years is banished to an obscure place in history as an overlooked guitar that is responsible for at least two of the most influential recordings in Rock History.
