About the original Keith Richards Micawber Telecaster 

 

This Micawber Telecaster is one of the most generally used electric guitars of Keith Richards and was restructured from the 1953 Telecaster. The Micawber Telecaster features a classic ash body, the simple black pickguard, and a maple fingerboard with 21 vintage style frets, perfect for comfort and speed in any playing style. Chrome hardware accents the rock-ready vibe. Keith Richards has been thrilling audiences with his versatile guitar playing for ma. Butterscoth Blonde body, black pickguard. Micawber is said for being called following a figure Wilkins Micawber in Dickens story David Copperfield, but the actual trigger is undiscovered. Distinctive from other Telecaster, Micawber had a dual-coil pickups in neck.

 

 

From the Exile on Main St. period, Keith Richards began to use this instrument. When applying this guitar, Keith generally tuned in Open G (DGDGBD) and removed the 6th string. You are able to say that Keiths special electric guitar design is inextricably connected with this adjusting technique.

 


 

The guitar is one of Keith’s most famous trademark guitars, even though he also has other teles, Micawber had always been his desired devices in both his tourings and recordings. The subsequent article detailed the changes and impact Keith took to this electric guitar. One ofs custom store previously cloned 20 Micawber guitars, but afterwards stopped for Keiths intervention.

As you can see, our replicated Keith Richards Telecaster Micawber is treated with the Heavy Relic treatment. This means the guitar is finished to resemble an instrument that has enjoyed a long life of heavy use. This includes significant wear and tear to the finish, dings to the body, neck, and headstock, and aged hardware. The end result is an instrument that looks like it's been around for a while and plays like a well broken-in instrument.

Panstaking vintage accuracy graces this guitar

 

 

To make the best Fender Keith Richards Telecaster Micawber replicas, we tracked down several of the original teles, bought professional drawings and exhaustively analyzed them to ensure a painstaking level of vintage accuracy. Every facet of the original instruments - including minute details such as curves, perimeters, radii and more - was examined, measured, evaluated, and ultimately incorporated into the Keith Richards Telecaster. What you see in this remarkable guitar is more than the sum of its parts. It's a highly playable, eminently musical-sounding recreation of an iconic instrument that changed music forever.

Beauty, tone, and playability

 

About our replicated Keith Richards Telecaster Micawber, there's genius in the details. This remarkable guitar's beauty, tone, and playability are no accident. It starts with the classic ash body, the simple single-ply black pickguard and a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic Butterscotch Blonde. Then, there's the maple neck with rolled fingerboard edges and 21 vintage style frets, a sculpted headstock volute for enhanced first-position comfort, and vintage tuner spacing for true "straight string pull" over a bone nut. All these specs keep in touch with the original guitar.

As we are a custom shop, our aim is to give you everything you need to make a personalizing custom guitar.


About Painting-Nitrocellulose lacquer

 

When talking about lacquer used in the guitars making, there are mainly two kinds, including polyurethane lacquer and nitrocellulose lacquer. But the most special is nitrocellulose lacquer. Nitrocellulose lacquer has more advantages than Polyurethane lacquer, like quick-drying, tough film, abrasion, high chemicas and water resistance. Regardless of past, present or future, only high-quality, expensive guitars use this kind of lacquer. 



  

Therefore, we pay great attention to painting when making the Keith Richards Telecaster Guitars. Just as the original guitar, the Nitrocellulose lacquer finish is applied, sanded, and buffed by hand; namely, more care is put into the finishing process. This extra care is intended to make the guitars look like gently aged and well-cared-for vintage guitars. Nitrocellulose lacquer helps the guitars 'breathe' better and won't affect the guitar's shock, therefore to resonate and sustain more freely, making them much better instruments.

 

But, as we all know, when using, Nitrocellulose lacquer needs painting and sanding repeatedly, for more than dozens of times. This process often do great harm to painters. But polyurethane lacquer just needs painting and sanding for just few times. Therefore, guitars painted with Nitrocellulose lacquer will be higher than other guitars, pls understand!

 

 

About Pickups  

 

It is worth mentioning that the pickups we select are Wilkinson pickups. We have to admit that Wilkinson pickups are not as good as the original pickups. But they are more attractive in quality and price, saving much money for our customers. Most of our customers reflected the pickups are beyond their imagination, stable and reliable enough!

 

Of course! If you insist on the original pickups, and we can find them on the market, and can afford it. We are pleasant to install the original pickups for your guitars. But the price will be much higher than guitars with Willinson pickups. Be prepared!
