Richie Kotzen Signature Fender Telecaster now available WORLDWIDE!

Once available only in Japan, the Richie Kotzen Telecaster® is now available to a worldwide audience. Known for stints with Poison and Mr. Big and for his own prolific career as a solo artist and sideman, Kotzen has long wowed audiences with his impeccable chops and deft Telecaster artistry. His signature Telecaster model features a beautiful flame maple top on an ash body, with a distinctive combination of DiMarzio® Twang King (neck) and Chopper T (bridge) pickups.

Other premium features include a satin-finish maple neck with a large “C”-shaped profile, 12”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets and pearloid dot inlays, three-way blade pickup switch with “barrel” tip, master volume control and rotary series/parallel switch, single-ply cream pickguard, gold six-saddle through-body Telecaster bridge, Gotoh® sealed tuners and gold hardware.

I’m guessing it’s still going to be pretty pricey, but at least it’s now officially available worldwide – go Richie!


  1. You’re fast :)
    Awesomely beautiful guitar…incredible sound and feel.

  2. I’d really love to have one of these someday – and now with worldwide distro, I might even get to! It’ll take a bit of saving though…

  3. It really is a comfortable playing guitar… if f wasn’t for Richie Kotzen’s design, with the comfort cuts,…I’d never own a tele.

  4. I was gassing for his strat model at one point, but this Tele has always been nice too.

  5. Yeah same here! He seems to exclusively use the Tele these days though.
