Jimmy Page started using the Vox Phantom XII guitar in the spring of 1967 to follow the electric folk rock trend of The Byrds, Bob Dylan and Fairport Convention. Page used the Vox Phantom XII on stage with the Yardbirds in 1967. In the studio, Page employed the Vox Phantom XII on the track Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor from the 1967 Yardbirds' album Little Games. Page also used the Vox Phantom XII with Led Zeppelin, recording the electric rhythm for the track Thank You from Led Zeppelin II at Morgan Studios in London, England in June 1969.
