  1. John/Fender … I am hearing conflicting retailer responses about finish checking on the headstock. I received mine and it has checking. I contacted my retailer, Sweetwater, and he said they contacted Fender and the reply was that checking was intentional from Fender. A different retailer told me the guitars they received did NOT have checking. What is the official Fender response? Should these guitars be arriving to customers with finish checking?

  2. Thats sound is frikin amazing!!The actions seems low & the tones- its getting a clean' but distortiony sound!!Sounds like my U.S.A.made Sunburst Fender Strat!!Similiar clean distortiony sound..Im not an avid gutairist,kinda ghetto like player open strings and power chords- but i love music..This is a Beautifo gutair!!Rite on..'Jimmy✌🇺🇸

  3. bullshit that you can't actually play Zep riffs – not like you're making money of them, you're showing the freaking endorser's rmusic!

  4. I ordered mine on 19 April. There was very little information on the production version and I didn't find out until much later that I'd paid a lot of money for a Mexican. Almost every retailer linked the Fender video for the Custom Shop version on their listing for the production model. Some sites even spec-ed the Custom Shop model on the cheaper listing. Sure, I knew that the bells and whistles CS was an edition of 50, but I had the impression that the production was more than it is. An interview with Fender at NAMM, says that they are, 'sold out at retailer level', but doesn't say which one. The price point does not indicate Mexican at all. Even this video (released 3 months later), doers not say made in Mexico, just a brief glimpse of the neckplate gives you an idea. I love my Fenders, but I get the feeling I was mis-led into spending my money, not by the retailer, but by Fender.

  5. Cmon people !! You are selling this guitar for a ton of money and you cant even play some zep stuff ??

  6. As if Jimmy Page did or would ever play a Mexican made poly finish guitar. No offense because they’re nice guitars for if you’re on a budget or a beginner but come on Fender… Such ‘recreations’ should be made in the USA with top materials in every detail.

  7. Jimmy Page is a nice enough person that he will allow you to re-make his guitar, but wont allow you to use the Led Zeppelin songs 🙂

  8. It's sad when you build Jimmy Page his own Telecaster and still can't play Zeppelin riffs without fear of getting your video taken down over copyright infringement.

  9. I'm sorry Fender, but I have to be honest. This Jimmy Page Tele sounds extremely mediocre. Compared to the Custom Shop Mid-Year Collection Telecasters, this guitar sounds like pure garbage. I would rather have one of the Vintera Series Telecasters. They sound much better, in my opinion. Truthfully, I don't give a damn about Jimmy Page. And, unless his signature guitar has something more significant to offer than fancy graphics, I choose to spend my money on a better Fender product.

  10. Love the tribute to, imho the best guitar player ever….
    Not so keen on the Sig guitars tho.

    But….
    Can I say that the one Tele that I would immediately purchase would be a 62' Custom Tele reissue (the one with the binding! ;).

    I don't think Fender do a current version anywhere in the range (barring the CS!), surely this model deserves to be represented somewhere

    Can you help?. 😉

  11. I really wish this was a few hundred cheaper and with a unique normal color range.. like based on their albums. Say a a black tele with a cream/red/cream "mothership" pickguard ……. add in a legit nitro finish, and you could jack the price back up. This thing is just too harsh on the eyes
