Nash TK-54 Guitar, Mary Kay White
The Nash TK-54 is modeled after Keith Richards' famous butterscotch blonde "Micawber" stage tele, but of course with Nash's own unique style and quality. The Micawber was rumored to be given to Keith Richards by Eric Clapton as a gift for his 27th birthday and is probably the most notable and famous of all Keith Richards' guitars.
One of first things you will notice after picking up this guitar is how comfortable the neck shape feels. This guitar has an all maple C Shape neck that is super smooth and comfortable with rolled frets that seem to mesh seamlessly into the curve of the neck. This particular maple neck has some really nice flame to it, which is very noticeable when looking at the back.
The body is made from swamp ash and is incredibly resonant. This TK-54 is obviously not butterscotch blonde, but the Mary Kay White finish is still a very nice color for this guitar and Keith Richards is known to have a few Mary Kay White teles on stage.
One of the most notable features of this guitar is the Lollar Imperial humbucker at the neck that really gives this guitar a wide range of tone. This pickup coupled with the Lollar Tele style single coil at the bridge gives this guitar the capability to go from classic tele blues to heavy rock and everywhere in between.
