mmm, telecaster page used on early zeppelin and the occasional late zeppelin, strat wasnt used very often. So definetly Tele or les paul, pick the one based on your prefered sound and feel. Telecaster has the brighter Whole Lot of Love , Stairway to Heaven solo sound, while the Les Paul is more the Black Dog & Rock N Roll tracks

Page used an assortment of guitars in the studio with alot of tricks to get interesting tones, so it will be difficult to nail the studio tones anyway

I like most earlier zepp better, but ive heard that teles are harder to "work"?
#7
What do you mean by that?

Also what amp do you have? Amp is mroe important for a Zep sound really!

Depends on the player. Page himself said Teles were more of a fight. Can you be a little more specific about what tones you're after... you after stuff off of the first album or the second or early live stuff?

yo strat is used on like In the Evening and thats really it


Yeah... unless you count The Crunge, Ten Years Gone, For Your Life and Hots On For Nowhere. A few other tracks from Presence are most likely a Strat as well.

He started to use it tons towards the end of Led Zeppelin.

And maybe, I would go for a Tele. You can get a pretty decent Strat-ish tone out of it, maybe not a Les Paul one as such, but oh well, everyone knows Fender's better.


In my opinion.

If I specifically wanted Zep tones, I'd pick up a Les Paul of some kind and a second hand Danelectro. Should be able to cover most of it with that.

It doesn't matter - a guitar isn't even genre specific, let alone band specific. You'll be able to play Zeppelin stuff on any guitar you want....Jimmy Page had so many different tones that it's pointless worrying about it anyway.

i think he used a danelectro too, at times.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

There is also that. It's important to remember that Page changed his amp setup in the studio quite regularly, as well as changing guitar alot.

I still think a Danelectro is a good idea though...if only beause they're as cool as hell and I am trying to justify getting one for no real reason.

go with the telecaster, and you need to get an amp that gives you that Zeppelin tone (I think Page used some Orange heads ? but I'm not sure )
#15
i would get a tele.... especially cause your name is "i want a tele."

This is why I bought a Variax 700. I do wish it had a mandolin rather then a banjo.
