Jimmy Page's famous Dragon Telecaster started out as a generic white. Page inherited it when Jeff Beck left the Yardbirds in 1966, and by spring 1967 the Tele sported eight reflective circle patches.

In late 1967 the Dragon was hatched.
"... Jimmy Page stripped the Fender Blond paint off and handpainted a green, red and orange psychadelic dragon on the front of the ash body and replaced the pickguard with a pickguard made of clear acrylic with a sheet of diffraction grating film underneath."
