THE TPP KEITH RICHARDS
"MICAWBER" TELECASTER TRIBUTE
A crucial member of The Rolling Stones, Keith Richards has embodied relentless energy and stunning riffs for decades and his principle player, a battered Fender Telecaster known as "Micawber", has always been by his side. Produced using an original 50's Telecaster, Keith decided to modify the guitar to his own unique specs and fitted a contemporary brass bridge featuring only 5 saddles (Keith always tuned the guitar to open 'G'), a Gibson Humbucker in the neck position, tightly snugged-up against the neck (more so than a common neck humbucker) along with Sperzel replacement headstock tuners. The definition of 'road-worn' and a real fan-favourite, "Micawber" is THE Telecaster...
