By now, you've heard about Keith Richards' autobiography, "Life." This provides an opportunity to give a nod to the Fender Telecaster, a true classic. With its masterful engineering, simple shape, and perpetual production (the same model has been made since 1950), it represents brilliant, timeless design. Keith's main guitar is a Tele he calls "Micawber," and he has numerous others. This photo of a classic Telecaster was taken by Hedi Slimane.
