Unused, un-played, unblemished kotzen tele, comes in original gig bag in mint condition.

Taking the world by storm, Richie Kotzen's furious playing and tone are memorising to say the least. His signature

telecaster has been designed from the ground up, to keep up with his specific demands.

Pickup wise, this tele has been fitted with a Dimarzio chopper T and Twang King neck. This gives you searing lead tones from the bridge while keeping the neck clean and stratty.

The large C neck is a meaty yet comfortable and the 12" radius, combines with Jumbo frets makes for a wicked playing experience. In uber mint condition, this Kotzen tele has no signs of use at all and comes with a decent generic case.

Factory spec below:

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.
