    Cool, now you need the Mirrored version. IIRC it is American made so you can give us the skinny on MIM v AM. Same guitar with different finishes in real life...but different altogether in the replicas.

     

    I'm really wanting two current Telecasters from the Artist series. Both MiM. Joe Strummer '66 and J Mascis top loader '59....can't get enough of the blue sparkle.

    "now you need the Mirrored version. IIRC it is American made so you can give us the skinny on MIM v AM."- Good idea!

    Found it interesting the Mascis neck is nitro and body poly (same as Dragon Tele). With Dragon you have the choice of top or through body load.

    Chasing the Dragon: The Magical Mystery of Jimmy Page’s Painted Telecaster | Fender Guitars

    DRAGON SLAYER: THE MAGICAL MYSTERY OF JIMMY PAGE’S PAINTED TELECASTER

    How one '59 Telecaster powered the Yardbird's final years, Led Zeppelin's debut and one of rock's most iconic solos. It was first owned by Jeff Beck’s school friend and Deltones bandmate John Owen, who bought it for 107 British pounds in 1961. The precise date of the Tele’s birth is not known, but the guitar was originally painted blonde and featured a maple neck, a slab rosewood fingerboard and a top loader bridge, which was common for Telecasters produced in 1959 and 1960. Also, Fender introduced the slab rosewood fingerboard to the Tele in mid-1959 after bowing them on Jazzmaster models the previous year. When he formed Led Zeppelin in 1968, the Dragon Telecaster became Page’s go-to instrument and he played it onstage and in the studio until 1969, wrote Brad Tolinski in Light & Shade: Conversations With Jimmy Page. The instrument was the main guitar used on Led Zeppelin and was later used to record the iconic solo for “Stairway to Heaven."

    If I can't always have positive or generally "good" thoughts... beautiful music can kind of prod me towards that.

    For a ex heavy metal rocker this qualifies more than "Dreamer/Deceiver" does!
