JP and the Beck Telecaster

Some great pics out there of Jimmy Page and this telecaster which was given to him by Jeff beck in '66.
I believe its a 57 Tele and by the time this was taken it had been stripped and repainted by the man himself.
Apparently the reason he put the push/pull pot on the bridge of his 58 Paul which he purchased from Joe Walsh for 500 quid (neck was already shaved) was that he liked the sound of a single coil in the bridge was because he really liked that tele sound and a lot of the first Zepp lp has a tele used on it apparently.
Anyway, great pic! Also found it funny to read that Page used a fender strat whilst playing another favorite, Over the Hills and far away...I was playing that tonite on a Strat and it sounded great!
