    Description

    Rolling Stones - Keith Richards Skull Art Custom Shop Fender Guitar. A stage-used (during the A Bigger Bang tour) 2007 Fender Custom Shop Telecaster, made for Keith Richards. The guitar has a custom-painted skull motif on the front, and a portrait of a half-skeleton Keith Richards smoking a cigarette on the back. The acrylic artwork was done by famous airbrush artist Paul Karslake. The artist notes "Keith asked me to paint his guitar... I thought about what he would possibly like, maybe reggae, a blues theme, something with a 'sympathy for the devil' theme and then it hit me, what else but skulls HAHA!" A photo of Keith playing the guitar can be found on Karslake's website. The guitar is signed by the artist and is in Excellent condition, appearing virtually new! Includes a hardcase.
