The 1965 Fender Electric XII was most likely acquired by Jimmy Page in his Yardbirds days, however the first confirmed usage of it was in December 1970 in recording Stairway To Heaven & When The Levee Breaks and in May 1972 at Stargroves, East End, Newbury, England, for The Song Remains The Same from Houses Of The Holy.

The Fender Electric XII made its first on stage performance on April 4, 2009 when Jimmy Page joined keyboardist Jason Rebello, bassist Tal Wilkenfeld and drummer Vinie Colaiuta for Beck's Bolero > Immigrant Song > Beck's Bolero along with fellow Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee, Jeff Beck.
