Scarce Keith Richards' custom-made guitar, used by Richards in the recording sessions for "Some Girls", on the Rolling Stones 1978 tour in support of the album, and also in the music videos, signed and inscribed by Richards: "To Doc, Love & Prescriptions / Keith Richards". Guitar was custom-made for Richards by his go-to luthier Ted Newman Jones, whose mother-of-pearl inset on the back of the guitar reads "N 77", indicating the year it was made, shortly before the recording sessions for "Some Girls" in October 1977 where Richards used this guitar. Richards also used the guitar on the Stones 1978 tour, where it can be seen in "Some Girls: Live in Texas '78", and on the music videos "Miss You" and "Far Away Eyes".

Keith Richards signed guitar for $7,500,000

Scarce Keith Richards' custom-made guitar, used by Richards in the recording sessions for "Some Girls", on the Rolling Stones 1978 tour in support of the album, and also in the music videos, signed and inscribed by Richards: "To Doc, Love & Prescriptions / Keith Richards". Guitar was custom-made for Richards by his go-to luthier Ted Newman Jones, whose mother-of-pearl inset on the back of the guitar reads "N 77", indicating the year it was made, shortly before the recording sessions for "Some Girls" in October 1977 where Richards used this guitar. Richards also used the guitar on the Stones 1978 tour, where it can be seen in "Some Girls: Live in Texas '78", and on the music videos "Miss You" and "Far Away Eyes".

Richards is photographed holding the guitar in "Rolling Stones Gear: All the Stones' Instruments from Stage to Studio" by Andy Babiuk and Greg Prevost, and guitar is further accompanied by a Letter of Authenticity by Babiuk who writes at length about it, giving the history of the guitar. Letter reads in part, "This instrument was a guitar that Newman built for Keith copying the style of a Fender Telecaster body and using an actual Fender Telecaster Rosewood Model neck…Keith used the guitar as Newman originally built it for the Rolling Stones Some Girls recordings, video and on the 1978 Some Girls tour." He continues with the history of the guitar, "In 1981, The Who's guitar tech Alan Rogan started working with the Stones…Rogan had David Schecter build a Telecaster body made of rosewood and took the neck off the Newman Custom Built Telecaster and made a new Rosewood Telecaster guitar for Keith to use on the tour. The Newman built 'Telecaster style' body was given to Schecter who fitted it with a Fender Tele style neck and a new bridge / pickup assembly." At that time, David Schecter owned Schecter Guitar Research, and sold the guitar to the subsequent owner, a radio station executive to whom Richards inscribed the guitar. In addition to the above information, guitar has a maple neck with rosewood fretboard, Schecter bridge, original equipment manufactured tuners, wood pickguard, three-way selector switch, and strap locks. Housed in later case.

Guitar is accompanied by "Rolling Stones Gear" where the guitar is written about at length and pictured several times. Also accompanied by a COA from Roger Epperson for Keith's signature, and by several COAs from Resolution Photomatching, exactly matching the guitar to the Stones 26 July 1978 concert in Texas, and to the videos "Miss You" and "Far Away Eyes". One of the very few guitars used by Richards with the Stones ever to be sold.

I love Keith too, but come on. Jimi's Woodstock guitar is a steal in comparison and a lot more important in my opinion.

Didn't Frank Zappa take care of Jimi's Woodstock guitar ?

Come to think of it where's the guy that knows everything Hendrix? Think he's French? I always liked his posts, hope he's okay.

That FZ guitar is in the hands of collector with the understanding that it is being played and will go back the Zappa family ( not sure if that means the trust or what). I have a friend whose band leader has that guitar.

I thought Dweezil played it several times. That trust turned into a feud if I remember it well.

There's an Ampeg SVT and cab from the Stones' 1969 tour on sale in TN for $9500 usd on Facebook. Used to belong to a guy named John Powell who worked as a musician and dj in the early 70's. Said he bought it at Manny's in New York after the tour.

Don't you have to be signed up with FB to open the links, tho? I guess a lot of people are on FB, but I try not to be an exclusionist.

Totally ridiculous for a a body alone, which was replaced because it was very badly made with the string holes in the wrong place so it couldn't intonate properly. Keith loved the 1969 Fender neck, not the body.
