Mike, one of the guitarists in "South Street Bridge" (cover band I'm in) is quite the aficionado of Keith Richards. He has a couple of guitars dedicated to five strings and open G. This has inspired me to build a replica of Keith's famous "Micawber" 1954 Tele that he used to record so many of the band's iconic songs. I grabbed a swamp ash blank off eBay and roughed it out; I cleaned it up but soon realized it wasn't going to work, it had to be pushing 8 pounds all by itself and that would just suck. I ordered a replacement that was under five pounds. Keith uses a brass flat bridge, luckily Armadillo Guitars makes a version. Way too pretty as was all the hardware so into the salty water it went. With the Slick fullerton pickup. at 9.7K it's the closest I could find to Keith's 10K rewound Fender lap steel pickup he uses... plus I know these sound great. I think palm action would keep the tops of the saddles cleaner so I'll adjust that later. New body with bakelite pickguard and Seymour Duncan antiquity humbucker. I got the esquire pickguard since I will have to cut it up. Humbucker rout done.
