An Incredible Animated Short Film Behind Jimmy Page’s 1959 Telecaster Narrated by Page Himself

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Led Zeppelin, guitar legend Jimmy Page narrates a superb, freaky animation by Nexus Studios that shares the journey of his iconic 1959 Fender Telecaster.

Animator Bishoy Gendi says, I got to the point where I wanted to consecrate this guitar and really make it my own …Being there in the Yardbirds, I was building my own identity in the group. I tried applying mirrors to it, so you could use it in an optical way with the lights and shine the mirrors on people while you were playing. …Basically, this guitar goes through from the Yardbirds relatively unscathed to Led Zeppelin, and it’s the guitar that does Led Zeppelin I… So, it’s sort of the birth of Excalibur that goes all the way through in a way..

Allow this to melt your brain for a few moments.
