  • Walnut peghead truss rod plug is more oval shaped.
  • Late 1952 tele: Wiring changes on Tele. Now instead of the last knob being a “blend” control (allowing both pickups to be used at the same time), it now becomes a tone knob.

Keith richards guitar Telecaster

Keith Richards has played plenty of guitars over the years, but he’s most readily identified with the Fender Telecaster. From 1975 to well into the 1980s, a black Tele Custom (pictured) was his main standard tuning electric onstage. It also proved useful when discouraging stage invasions.

One of Keith’s most iconic guitars is Micawber, the early 1950s butterscotch Tele he’s owned since Exile On Main St. that’s his number one open-G guitar. Strung with just five strings (G D G B D low-high) and featuring a replacement brass six-saddle bridge and a Gibson PAF in the neck position, if one guitar is the sound of The Rolling Stones, it’s this.

Guitar legends are often praised for their dexterity, skill, and a stellar sense of rhythm. But the most overlooked talent of the guitarist is the masterful facial aerobics they must perform when giving life to an amazing solo.

As Guitar Month comes to a close at CBC Music, we’re sharing a few of our favourite guitar faces from Canadians and Americans alike. From Danko Jones’ ‘o-face’ to Alex Lifeson’s ‘I gotta go-face’, we’ve collected a few great moments of axe men and women getting lost in the jam.

Keith Richards and Jack White have “recorded a couple of tracks” together and might be releasing the new material within a few months.

“I enjoy working with Jack,” Richards toldRolling Stone. “We’ve done a couple of tracks. I don’t know if [Jack] ever considered that it was actually, like, master cuts. But at the same time if Jack wanted to do it, I’d probably say, ‘Yeah.’ I know Jack pretty well. He’s a lovely player.”

The Rolling Stones guitarist also mentioned the possibility of recording some new material with his usual cohorts, The Rolling Stones. He said the band will be getting together next month to discuss plans.

“We’re going to talk about that in July and see,” Richards said. “I mean, I’d love to get some tracks down and see what songs we’ve got. And that goes along with part of getting the band back together and getting things moving. So I’d love to cut some tracks, yeah.”

You can say that Keith’s special electric guitar design is inextricably joined using this tuning technique.
