60th Anniversary Tele Notes & Trivia: 1970

It’s well known that Jimmy Page used the 1959 Telecaster he’d used so extensively in the Yardbirds to play the guitar solo in “Stairway to Heaven,” the recording of which begins in December of 1970. It becomes Led Zeppelin’s signature epic and has been regarded ever since as one of the greatest rock compositions of all time. What’s less well known is that Page also uses another Fender guitar on the song; a seldom-seen model produced from 1965 to 1969. What was it?

Update with answer:

Fender Electric XII
