Richie Kotzen is a highly-respected musician, known for his soulful vocal-style and impeccable guitar chops. Making his name during stints with stadium-stalwarts Poison and Mr. Big, Kotzen currently fronts rock supergroup The Winery Dogs and almost exclusively wields his signature Fender Telecaster onstage.

Originally available in Japan only, the Richie Kotzen Telecaster has since become one of Fender's most popular artist models worldwide. Hot-rodded with a number of special features, including a powerful DiMarzio pickup pairing, stunning Flamed Maple top and ergonomic body contours - this is a Tele on steroids.

Unique Body Construction
The Richie Kotzen Signature Telecaster is constructed from a mix of Fender's favoured tonewoods, but with a few tweaks. An Ash body serves as a balanced tonal foundation for the high-output pickups, which is adorned with a gorgeous Flamed Maple top that gives this instrument some real aesthetic appeal.
Unlike most Teles which typically have a slab body, the Fender Richie Kotzen Signature Telecaster has a couple of contours that improve its comfort for enhanced playability. A smooth body top contour follows the shape of your forearm for an improved picking position, while a rear belly cut allows the instrument to rest more closely to your body.

Large "C" Neck
Another idiosyncratic feature of the Fender Richie Kotzen Tele is its large “C”-shaped neck profile. This fat neck carve offers an incredibly supportive feel, that still allows for fast playability with its slick satin finish. The fingerboard specs are far more modern, with a relatively flat 12” radius, 22 jumbo frets and tasteful pearloid dot inlays.

DiMarzio Pickups
A distinctive combination of DiMarzio Twang King (neck) and Chopper T (bridge) single-coils give this instrument its remarkably potent voice. Able to project that classic Tele spank, these particular pickups offer more output than traditional Telecaster single-coils and have a much fuller sound - making them apt for use with overdrive and distortion. A series/parallel rotary switch expands this guitar's wide tonal palette even further.
