Fender Richie Kotzen Telecaster®, Maple Fingerboard, Brown Sunburst
HIGH-PERFORMANCE TELE® ELEGANCE
Versatile rock guitarist Richie Kotzen has long wowed audiences with his impeccable chops and deft Telecaster artistry, with stints in Poison and Mr. Big and his own prolific career as a solo artist and sideman. Once available only in Japan, the elegant Richie Kotzen Telecaster guitar is now available worldwide, with features including a beautiful flame maple top on a comfortably contoured ash body, gold hardware and a distinctive combination of DiMarzio® pickups.
- Contoured ash body with bound flame maple top
- Maple neck with large C profile
- Maple fingerboard with 12 radius, 22 jumbo frets and abalone inlays
- DiMarzio® DP173 Twang King neck pickup and DP384 Chopper T bridge pickup
- Three-way pickup selector switch and rotary series/parallel switch (no tone control)
- Gold through-body Telecaster bridge
Strong and dense, ash is a longtime classic for electric instrument bodies. Notably resonant and sweet-sounding, its 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 imparts an especially elegant gilded look to this instrument a pleasingly high-end appearance that isnt overdone or ostentatious, but rather just the right touch of refinement.
LARGE “C” NECK PROFILE
The Richie Kotzen Telecaster features a modern neck with a thicker C profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), and a maple fingerboard with a 12 radius and 22 jumbo frets.
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
The Richie Kotzen Telecaster’s special series-parallel rotary switch delivers versatile tonality from both pickups.
