    What model is that? do you have the Fender CS Certificate?

    The relics are not my thing but I didn't know they made the Keith Richards model.

    Your right I think Kieth didn't want to endorse it even though Fender were keen to do. That said it took me over a year of searching the get a nicely inspired by.
    Yes I do have a cs certificate and I got the guitar validated by Fender prior to purchase.

    Depends on what ere Micawber you're aiming for, in the seventies it was just like that. And I think it's that way again .

    I find it really funny when people on here keep saying Keef only uses the bridge pickup, if that's so, why do almost all of his teles, especially the five string ones , have a humbucker. EVen if he only uses the bridge pickup in concert, that doesn't mean he doesn't use the hummer for recording !

    Just built for me by Dean Fraser at fraserguitars.com in Chorley, Lancashire England.
    It's a killer! And.. totally affordable.

    The grain on that is spectacular. I really love it when the grain pattern is more or less parallel with the neck.

    I'm not the biggest "Micawber replica" guy, but I am a huge Keef fan, and one of the things I love about these is the solid brass 'Armadillo' bridge.

    Is it OK if I ask how much "affordable" would cost me?
