Here's something special...1969 Fender Rosewood Telecaster. The guitar has a B-Bender that was built and installed by Gene Parsons in 1977. Gene Parsons and Clarence White invented the B-Bender system in 1968. It was originally called the  Parsons/White Pull String (later called the StringBender, and eventually renamed the B-Bender). Clarence, who originally played with the Byrds, was looking for a way to play pedal steel licks on his '54 Telecaster. From there, he and bandmate Gene Parsons devised the system. White passed away in 1973...so this is an amazing piece of history and tribute from Parsons to install the Parsons-White StringBender on this guitar. It works by using a strap, and essentially bending the neck down to get that pedal steel sound. Ground breaking! As you can read from the documentation that comes with the guitar, it spent over 7 years in Keith Richards collection, and was used on some amazing Richards collaborative recordings....including a song with Jerry Lee Lewis! 

Now for the rest of the guitar....all we can say is WOW. This is as good of a playing Telecaster as it gets. There's been some work done on the guitar by very high level luthiers. Besides the B-Bender, the bridge, control plate, and neck plate were replaced with brass versions. The pickups are Seymour Duncan vintage Broadcaster single coils, that sound incredible! Full, clear, twangy, and warm from the Brazilian rosewood body. The pots date to '79. The guitar has had a re-fret, which adds to its incredible playability. Tuners are original as well!

As you can see by the pictures, included is documentation on the guitars history and spec's. Also included is the book and CD recorded for Keith Richard's sister in law in Keith's basement in 2001, in which the guitar was used on some of the songs. And of course, a beautiful, clean, original case!
