What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

This KR (Keith Richards) Butterscotch tele is rare and wonderful. Modeled on the famous "Micawber" gifted by Eric Clapton to Keith, this one has tons of mojo in looks, sound, and feel. The additional flourishes of 6-saddle bridge and a very pretty Birdseye Maple fingerboard may not be period correct, but add tons of value to a modern take on an infamous classic

SP Luthier Notes: Setup confirmed
