High-Performance Tele® Elegance

Once available only in Japan, the Richie Kotzen Telecaster® guitar is now available to a worldwide audience. Known for stints with Poison and Mr. Big and for his own prolific career as a solo artist and sideman, Kotzen has long wowed audiences with his impeccable chops and deft Telecaster artistry. His signature Telecaster model features a beautiful flame maple top on an ash body with a distinctive combination of DiMarzio® Twang King (neck) and Chopper T (bridge) pickups.

Other premium features include a satin-finish maple neck with a large “C”-shaped profile, 12”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays, three-way blade pickup switch with “barrel” tip, master volume control and rotary series/parallel switch, single-ply cream pickguard, gold six-saddle through-body Telecaster bridge, Gotoh® sealed tuners and gold hardware.

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

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.
