Beautiful condition.

The Japan Exclusive Series Richie Kotzen Stratocaster guitar.

Known for his playing style that mixes rock, blues, jazz, fusion, and soul, Richie Kotzen is a stellar singer, songwriter, and guitar player. Although he was primarily known for playing Telecaster® in the band Poison, Fender Japan released two signature Richie Kotzen Stratocaster® models in 1996 that came equipped with DiMarzio pickups.

Richie Kotzen’s Stratocaster features a solid ash wood body with a flamed maple top to deliver a classic Fender twang with sweet, airy tones. The flamed maple top adds some bright characteristics to the guitars tone, while creating a visually stunning and unique aesthetic. The lightweight ash provides the guitar with excellent resonance and sustain, offering firm lows, pleasing highs, and a scooped midrange. The Fender also features a vintage-style synchronised to provide incredible string stability while offering the ability to create excellent pitch bends.

Featuring DiMarzio Custom Single Coil pickups that are very articulate. Even with distortion, each and every note can be heard. The tone is punchy and percussive with that bright Strat transparency.

This guitar has a 5-way switch, and the custom pickups are wired as single coils but will also be humbucking in the 2 and 4 positions. The centre pickup has a reverse magnet.
