Keith Richards explains that “fuzzy sound” to a fan.

Here’s a great handwritten letter from Keith to a fan where he explains the “fuzzy sound” he gets from using his fuzz box and how he mostly tours with his beloved Epiphone.
He also goes on to talk about how Brian using “bottleneck fretting” which he doesn’t care for as it ruins the strings.

Unusual to find a letter like this where the conversation is about making music as opposed to the usual fan questions, like “what’s your favorite thing to do?”

It was written by a young guitar player to Keith back in 1964.
