Player's Perspective

We're proud to present renowned guitarist Richie Kotzen's signature Fender Telecaster! Who says you can't shred on a Tele? This Richie Kotzen Tele combines the traditional warmth and vibe of the classic Tele tone with a hint of extra heat that'll inspire you to give your fingers a workout every time you pick it up. Searing, rich distortion can be conjured out of this guitar that can really sing in the higher registers. It's that vocal-like Tele tone, but on steroids. The dynamic DiMarzio pickups can also be rolled back and played a little more delicately, so this guitar gives you plenty of options.

The Large C neck is very comfortable and the 12" radius fretboard has a little extra precision and speed than a typical Telecaster. The uniquely contoured and lightweight body makes this guitar easy to play for hours, sitting or standing.

If all of that wasn't enough, the gold hardware and classic sunburst finish over a flame maple top add a little extra class and richness to the guitar's aesthetic. This is for the discerning player who wants a little more out of the classic Telecaster in both sound and looks.
