    No, he gets a royalty because he put his name on it and endorsed it. That's how it works.

    He endorsed it years ago.
    Did Jeff Beck approach Fender in the same veign?
    In all fairness endoring usually happens at the time you are using it, not 80 yrs latter.

    Is that in the endorsement rulebook or something?

    You seem to know the rulebook, reguarding anomalies.
    Yes if you are endorsing something you are generally using it.
    Gibson approached Page for thier tribute, as is...normal.

    I haven’t been tempted yet to buy an artist endorsed guitar but this might be the exception. The Eric Johnson Strat is the only other Artist guitar I’ve been drawn to and that’s because it’s got a killer feature set.

    I’m going to check out a Jimmy Page CS if I can. It’ll probably be too rich for my blood but if I were to actually buy one, it would be to play the dang thing. I don’t believe you can buy something like this as a collectable and make a profit on it. I don’t think anyone cares enough about it and I don’t think that happens with other endorsed guitars.

    With bigger name artists the sig models usually are a step up in quality control.
    If you like the specs and look of the instrument I think they can be good guitars to buy. Especially the lower cost versions.

    While I’d love to have that, would buy it if i could afford, and frankly i couple probably afford it but still won’t buy it, i’m Sure jimmy page just played an off the shelf Tele, something like what would be a MIM or American base standard today

    ....The story is that Jeff Beck gave a '59 Tele to Page that he used all over the place until it was damaged (including the solo on Stairway to Heaven I think?)

    Simple designs producing big ideas
