Jimmy Page acquired the 1964 Fender 'Lake Placid' Stratocaster ca. April 1975 and used it at the first dates of the 1975 Earls Court shows for No Quarter and Over The Hills And Far Away. It was also used in 1979 and 1980 for In The Evening.

In the studio, Page used the Fender Stratocaster in the Presence sessions, on For Your Life and Hots On For Nowhere.

Page continued to employ the Strat into the 1980s, in his solo Firm dates.
