      Comments about Fender Telecaster Richie Kotzen Solid Body Electric Guitar:

      This Tele is under rated. One of the best Tele buys available.
      Finally a 12" fretboard radius!! Great quality, fatter neck for meaty tone & great sounding Dimarzio pickups. I've owned a few Tele's & this is a winner!
      Great job Richie and Fender!

        Comments about Fender Telecaster Richie Kotzen Solid Body Electric Guitar:

        I've been playing for 30 years. I have a 59 LP Reissue and PRS McCarty. I've been looking for a telecaster for more than a year. This one always intrigued me but I was concerned with it being made in Japan. So I took a gamble (not really since you can send back if you don't like) and purchased this guitar. It came perfectly set up and played well - set up with .09s. I plan to have it setup for 11s - my preference. The neck is large but super comfortable. It feels the same size as my 59. I haven't put this guitar down in the 2 weeks since I got it. Love the maple neck and jumbo frets - I find it to be easier to play and more comfortable than my other guitars. No tone control but that doesn't bother me. The tone knob is used as a boost(when clicked on) in the middle position. When you click it on, its like you are running thru a tube screamer. Perfect for leads or when you need a bigger note. Only works in mid position. Wonderful guitar - buy it, you won't be disappointed. I played no less than 10 different American made telecaster over last year and this Japan made model beat them all - hands down. Its well worth the money. I've had a few Mexican made telecasters and its a night and day difference.

          Comments about Fender Telecaster Richie Kotzen Solid Body Electric Guitar:

          The neck is just that right size of big. Not like a baseball bat, but fits my hand well. Its fun to play around with the different sounds you can get out of this guitar. Of course it plays clean and twangy well, but you can really dirty it up too!
