The 1981 Zemaitis “Macabre” 5-String  Guitar

Guitar number one was owned and operated by Keith Richards and has since disappeared through a theft or fire, no one seems to agree completely. Due to the fact Keith’s guitar disappeared Tony Zemaitis agreed to build one final identical guitar for Kurt Scheidegger of Switzerland in 1981. This guitar was built to the EXACT specs of Keith Richard’s guitar from 1975. 



The 1981 “Macabre” 5-String guitar is the pinnacle of Zemaitis instruments and one of the rarest guitars available. Its natural mahogany finish is in wonderful original shape. The body has a cool back trap door to access the electronics and, as stated in the paperwork on the following pages, made to the exact design of Keith Richards personal 5 string “Macabre” having every abalone inlay on the top including a cool old pistol, a pirates knife, a skull and a mask with horns coming off the bridge, an alligator headstock logo, and the truss rod stating “Rebel Yell”. 1981 zemaitis “macabre” 5-string keith richards model guitar is the only guitar that remains of this unique design that was constructed by Tony Zemaitis. Mr. Zemaitis has passed away leaving no other legacy of this guitar from his shop.
