Keith Richards has banged out some significant riffs on this guitar, the Micawber.  What started life as a standard early model Telecaster had gone through a couple of significant changes.  Most notable is the Gibson neck humbucker pickup.  He also strings the guitar with only five of the usual six strings and tunes it to an open G tuning.  The bridge pickup is also suspect.  But who cares?  Turn it up!
