Keith Richards' Custom Telecaster

Want to own a piece of rock history? Got a spare two million bucks to spend? Here you go-- On eBay right now, a legendary guitar from a legendary guitarist. This is a 1978 custom Telecaster-shaped guitar built by Keith Richards' lu t hier, Ted Newman Jones. The guitar was built for Richards and he played it on the 1977 recording sessions for "Some Girls" and the 1978 tour. You can see him playing it on the music videos for "Miss You" and "Far Away Eyes." The guitar had several modifications to bridge, neck, and pickups over its life as a working instrument. Details are in the eBay listing. It has a basic maple neck with rosewood board with OEM tuners. The signed pick guard is made from wood and the guitar has Straplocks. It's one of the few Keith Richards guitars ever to be sold and, the way Keith is going, he may reach 150 years old before he passes away and more of his collection goes on the market. Enjoy the pics.
