Gallery Talk: Famous Guitars of the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards

One of the world's best-known guitar players, Keith Richards has been recording and performing with the Rolling Stones for more than 50 years. Over his career, Richards has favored a variety of guitars – Fender Telecasters, Gibson Les Pauls, among them – and in this video, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum curatorial director Howard Kramer shares a couple of Richards' choice guitars, both acoustic and electric. The guitars are featured in the Rolling Stones: 50 Years of Satisfaction exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, on view through March 2014 in Cleveland, Ohio.
