    Frankly I’d prefer a straight-on interview than that psychedelic bad dream. Thanks for posting though. Cool stories.

    So, it's a white Telecaster...with the features of a '59 model. It's a '59 reissue, then?
    So the only difference is a signature and a couple of mirrors the buyer has to glue on him/herself?
    For about a plus of 600 - 700 Euro more than a stock American Elite? Yeah, that's what I call marketing. Suckers.
    The video is the best part of it.

    I have not considered the commercial aspect (the launch of new Fender Telecaster J.P.), that is strictly connected; but only fascinated by the video....

    Precisely.

    Nice, but not at Custom Shop prices. It's basically an AVRI. I bet the pickups are just the Pure Vintage '58s as well!

    Still you get a nice signature on the back of the headstock that you really don't want (and no disrespect to Jimmy).

    I'd consider a '59 AVRI at AVRI prices with no association with Jimmy.

    I agree completely. Played one last week. Beautifully made guitar. Sounds and plays exceptionally well. But, not CS price for just Jimmy's sig on the back of the headstock and a couple of mirrors in the case. As you said, buy a '59 AVRI and save a bunch of money. Oh, you do get the option of a top-loader or string-through.:D

    I prefer this version. Directed by Willie Dixon and staring Jake Holmes...

    I know I'll cop it but Jimmy Page was the worst Live guitarist i have ever heard.
    I love Led Zep, but, having worked in a studio, you too can sound as good as him.
    Live- he was not good in Adelaide 1973.
    It was a very hot night, and the violin bow wasn't impressive. JMHO

    Haven't we done this already, and declared it a rip off? Thought so ...

    Neat, but considering that I have a 60s Baja, I think I'm already in the ballpark, so no Page/59 Reissue for me.

    It also has a poly undercoat under the nitro, which is ridiculous considering the price(Wildwood confirmed this to me over the phone after they contacted Fender).

    I played one at GC this week and have to say was very unimpressed. My 2011 60th anniversary telecaster puts it to shame and was about half the price. Note to GC management, the guitars which hang the longest in your stores, even up to 3 years, are the models with some famous person's name on it. There is a John Mayer Martin at my local store which has hung there for 5 years, Brad Paisley's Tele, 3 years. I predict the Jimi Page model will still be there in at least 3 years.

    It's awesome how bent out of shape people get over ANYTHING Page-related on this board. I know what's going to happen without even looking, yet I do anyway.
