One of a kind. Richie Kotzen has made a name for himself playing in bands like Poison and Mr. Big – he's a prolific guitarist. Blending multiple genres, from blues to metal, his playing style and music is exceptionally dynamic, and his guitar reflects this. With it, you can explore new musical horizons as you sail through lick after lick in total comfort. This sublime model will let you play whatever you want with complete confidence – there's nothing to hold you back.
The perfect duo. Loaded with a DiMarzio DP384 Chopper T and Twang King, this guitar is teeming with tone. Each pickup provides a crisp, detailed response which will fill your riffs with a rich, full voicing. The Chopper T in the bridge is a powerful, punchy pickup which has a strong midrange and low end for unrivalled crunch. It'll make each note you play sound chunky and fat, with more than enough dynamism to handle both clean and dirty settings.
With a Twang King in the neck, you'll be able to unleash a torrent of sublime, vintage Tele tone. It responds remarkably well to pick attack, meaning you can control your sound depending on how hard or soft you play the strings. Lead lines will shine through this pickup, with a strong, thick voicing and extended sustain. Combined, these pickups will give you a pristine, powerful performance – they're dynamite.
Supreme playing. The maple neck of the Richie Kotzen Telecaster is something to be marvelled at. Made to a large 'C' shape, it feels exceptionally comfortable and easy to play – perfect for any style. With a satin urethane finish, it is also beautifully smooth, allowing your hand to move around the fretboard unhindered. The maple wood also provides a tight, snappy tonal response which will add an extra touch of crispness and flair to your riffs. It'll let you play your way.
The fretboard is also beaming with quality. Like the neck, it is made from quality maple wood, meaning it also adds more brightness to your tone. It also helps to boost sustain, so you can really ring those string bends out for dramatic effect. Also offering a smooth surface and a blank canvas for you to write your riffs on, it feels incredibly satisfying to play. You'll experience a new level of freedom in your music-making.
Holding everything together. The solid hardware on this instrument helps to make it more than roadworthy. There's a quality 6-saddle string-through-body Tele bridge with block steel saddles for unrivalled string support and tuning stability. And world class cast/sealed Gotoh tuners ensure the strings remain fully intact. A 1-ply cream pickguard helps to ensure that the pristine finish of this professional-standard guitar is properly protected. The gold finish on the hardware also adds a luxurious look to this already stunning instrument, and helps it truly stand out. Richie Kotzen's signature model is a force to be reckoned with, and it will serve you well.
