We at TommyGuitars are proud to find this rare Fender Japan Telecaster ‘52 SPL issued tribute model of Keith Richards’s guitar - Micawber.

You can hear Micawber on Start Me Up, Honky Tonk Woman, Jumping Jack Flash, Brown Sugar, and countless others. In Japan, Keith is practically revered as a living god by both young and old rockers, which is why Fender Japan made this tribute guitar to Keith for the Japanese market. This guitar is in excellent condition, with minimal fret wear. See pics for blemishes on the back edge of the body, and tip and back side under area of the headstock.


This is a beautifully grained select two piece center seamed swamp ash body guitar in a Honey Scotch Blonde finish. It sounds glorious. Like Keith's, this guitar features a (Duncan 59 neck) humbucker installed reverse in the neck position, 6 saddle gold bridge (which Keith uses to accommodate a dislodged 6th string), ‘62 style flattop chrome knobs, and white Stratocaster pickup selector switch tip.
