dude he dates a chick in her 20s doesn't he? he can paint a few guitars...My take on it was he did one example because only he would remember the color scheme. Once that was done the shop would replicate the colors. I can’t see him painting 50. painting just one would be a lot.
considering the price difference (the mirror and translucent finish costing more) Ill probably just go for the dragon if I can get my hands on one. I always wanted a white tele with a rosewood board but $2499 is too rich for my blood.
I think that's what happened. The only part of the "Dragon Telecaster" that is definitely original today is the body wood. The neck is a replacement, the electronics have been swapped out, the reflective pickguard is a recreation and the dragon has been repainted.It would be something if he was repainting his original and they used that as a model.
You could get a heck of a custom build or custom shop build for about that money.Reading the text, "made for Jimmy Page" is a bit disingenuous, as it was clearly made for someone else.
Still, it would be a nice find if genuine. Giffen didn't commit 100%. If I was going to buy it I'd want to ask him to come & inspect it with me.
