Keith Richards Guitars


Ok, I'm gonna give a basic rundown of Keef's guitars and if anyone else knows of any others please add....
1. 'Micawber' is probably one of Keith’s most famous trademark guitars and is a 1953 Fender Telecaster Blonde. Micawber is named after a Charles Dickens character, no one is exactly sure why. Keith’s had this guitar since Exile On Main St. This guitar is kept in Open G tuning...

• 'Micawber' is used on songs like Brown Sugar and Honky Tonk Women.






2. 'Malcolm' is a 1954 Fender Telecaster with natural finish. Also kept in Open G tuning.

• 'Malcolm' is used on You Got Me Rockin’.



3. 'Sonny' is a 1966 Fender Telecaster Sunburst.
• 'Sonny' is famous for Tumbling Dice, You Can't Always Get What You Want








4. 'Dice' is a 1957 Gibson Les Paul TV Model Yellow. Starbuck says it’s a double cutaway and is always used on Midnight Rambler with a capo on the 7th fret.

Re: Keith Richards Guitars

PART 2


5. 'Dwight' is a White 1964 Gibson ES-345 Stereo.

• 'Dwight' is heard on Let’s Spend The Night Together and Get Off My Cloud





6. #6 is a 1959 Black Gibson ES-355 Mono (some folks say it’s a ’60, but Pierre De Beauport, Keith’s guitar tech, says it’s a ’59)

• The ES-355 Mono Black Keith uses on Satisfaction, Oh No Not You Again, She's So Cold, Nearness Of You and Little T&A.







7. #7 is a 1975 Black Telecaster Custom.

• Tele Custom is used on Jumping Jack Flash most of the time









8. #8 is a 1957 Fender Stratocaster 'Mary Kay' Blonde with Gold Hardware.

• ‘57 Stratocaster is used on Miss You and Under My Thumb. Keith, Mick and Ronnie all play Stratocasters on Miss You.





9. #9 is a 1964 Martin acoustic.

• ’64 Martin Acoustic is used for Keith’s ballads like The Worst, as well as Ruby Tuesday, Angie, etc.

Re: Keith Richards Guitars

PART 3

10. #10 is a 2006 Guild Custom 10 String acoustic.

• 2006 Guild Custom 10 String Acoustic is used on Wild Horses, in place of the 12 string Keith used to use before.





11. #11 is a new Zemaitis with the skull & crossbones design (like the original one that was stolen in the late 70’s) which was used during recent tours on Sway.





I think this is a picture of the original--

These are recent tours---but i'd like to see some pics and information on the older ones (like hyde park era late 1960's-early 1970's) I have seen pics of him playing an sg on honky tonk women also...

Re: Keith Richards Guitars

I WANT A 70s TELECASTER CUSTOM SOOOOO BAD!

I just thought I should let you all know that, anyone has one for sale like Keith's black with original Seth Lover neck pickup?

The Fender Custom Shop just did a limited run, I think they would probably be even better then an original. Even more rare though. Oh Dear god how I love Telecasters, I know this is a Les Paul forum, but they are just the best guitars ever!
