Coinciding with the new Rolling Stones world tour, which included their historic gig in Cuba, Fender celebrates the "human riff" with the new Fender Keith Richards Telecaster*.
Keith Richards has played many different guitars over the years, but his most distinctive guitar is his custom Fender Telecaster- a guitar he's used since the 70's and it has become synonymous with the "human riff". It's been announced this week, ahead of Musikmesse 2016.
Now, Fender has finally released a Keith Richards Signature Guitar for those fans who want the same tone! Coinciding with the Rolling Stones tour, the new guitar comes in two versions, both manufactured in Mexico: a standard run, and a limited-run of 200, with hardcase and certificate signed by Keef himself! Both look stunning, and comes equipped with vintage voiced Tele bridge pickup, and a Seymour Duncan humbucker in the neck position. There's a Keith Richards signature on the headstock and its back, too.
Like Keith's, it comes with maple fingerboard and black scratch plate, and is two slightly different finishes (Blonde and Natural):
The Fender Keith Richards Telecaster is priced £499. The Limited-Run is priced £799.
