    ASH BODY
    ASH BODY

    Strong and dense, ash is a longtime classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet sounding, it’s characterized by clearly chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. It also features an attractive grain that takes lighter-colored finishes especially beautifully.

    FLAME MAPLE TOP
    FLAME MAPLE TOP

    This Telecaster features the notably elegant high-end design element of a beautifully figured flame maple top.

    GOLD HARDWARE
    GOLD HARDWARE

    Gold hardware imparts an especially elegant gilded look to this instrument—a pleasingly high-end appearance that isn’t overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.

    LARGE "C" NECK PROFILE
    LARGE "C" NECK PROFILE

    DIMARZIO PICKUPS
    DIMARZIO PICKUPS

    The supercharged sound of the Richie Kotzen Telecaster comes from its high-performance pickup configuration, consisting of DiMarzio® DP173 Twang King™ (neck) and DP384 Chopper T™ (bridge) single-coil pickups.

    ROTARY SERIES/PARALLEL SWITCH
    ROTARY SERIES/PARALLEL SWITCH
