Classiqueuuuh desperately pianist for 56 years, I went there by chance. Ignoramus that I am, I have not seized any niceties of the technical part. But the end of the demo, frankly, it rocks. Bravi, bravo Duch!
When I am very old - well, I mean, even more than there - that's how I want to play! Question: At what age to start?
Well, in the meantime, I return to my minuets, hu, hu, hu!


See above.


See above, above!

Fender TLR-135 Richie Kotzen Telecaster
A Japanese (MIJ) whose production has been resumed but stopped.

- Japanese ash body (Sen Ash), the wood is quite heavy.
- Deck fittings gold (fast messy) and golden bridge fixed.
- Dimarzio Twang King pickups (neck) and Chopper (bridge)
- Split out of phase with a selector
- Volume

And that's all. It's very simple, and it's very effective.


The handle must try it. It is damn impressive. I like.
I would have preferred a better cut to ask the right forearm could be more comfortable, but you get used to as the guitar is good.

Considering the width of the handle, it is easier chords in terms of accuracy, but I should think, a little more effort to flatten them well.

For games like Lead, it's very comfortable, but it requires to remove the fingers differently. But it's the same, we made it. The end is not less accessible than other guitars untyped Shredd.

To find a good sound, there is so little adjustment, the sound, it was live! It is crude, it is Good!


It's a pretty versatile guitar:
The Twang King neck pickup gives the Vintage. It should give him a good Blues, Blues-Rock. He realize that both Clair Overdrive
The Twang King & Chopper split end rings, and slamming into crystalline phase out. Super Clear sound in this configuration. Phase, it gives a bigger sound with a higher output. Useful for the Jazz, but also great for making Leads.
The Chopper sounds pretty modern. It is not easy to have a pure typed his Country. on the other hand, it can be used to make metal if you have the proper pedal.

My current configuration:
Emma PisdiYauWot (Metal)
Mi Audio TubeZone v4 (Overdrive)
AMT SS-11A (Preamp & Crunch)
VisualSound H20 (Delay & Chorus)
Return via the Blackstar HT5

The sounds that give me the guitar give me satisfaction. It's a bit an off-roader that go very well in its Vintage and in addition, can attack the heavy (but not too much).


After 2 years of use, I can say that this is a very good guitar.
Easy to use, efficient, versatile in my styles of play: it's all I ask!

I've tried several, one struck me that I would not have had to sell: Blade RH4 Classic maple fingerboard with T_T which gives pure beauty of sound but requires too much adjustment due to multiple active configurations.

But for the price, this Telecaster worth it for its build quality and sound it provided. I remake that choice of course!

Fender TLR-135 Richie Kotzen Telecaster
Telecasster This is only made in Japan by FENDER JAPAN
c is a guitar that has 22 frets, which has two microphones, a twang king in the neck position and a chopper position is that acute bouble made a simple format, and the brand of these is Di Marzio pickups.

c is a fixed bridge telecaster modern type.
there is a selector 3 position (low, middle and high), a volume knob and a knob that has ser pass the microphone off acute phase (ca and c is the distance)

when the handle, you get to the one of the "big" over this guitar.

I who am more used to epai sleeves like a sheet of cigarette (Ibanez) I must say that this round and a half baseball bat!

a real man to handle, although thick and well rounded, which would well in hand, with a touch flat most beautiful effect.

key maple is beautiful, and (finally it does not have lomtemp used to handle this style pickaxe handle!


As I said above, this handle is a marvel, and access to acute n is not as easy as on an Ibanez, but much easier than a les paul.

the ergonomics of the guitar is exellent, and the weight is correct, neither too light nor too heavy.

the sound of that telecaster is exellent, and that in all registers, except the black metal, and even ......


It fully agree to my style of music because in fact it is very versatile, and c is a guitar that can have everything, but all play, jazz to country through the METAL.


I ale since the two days, but I had the already long tried (in sunburst version).

I love all of this guitar, apart from the fact that there is buzz, but it is the c Particularities of fenders and microphones simple! I'll have m used to it.

j've tried all that is done before buying this guitar, the list is too long.

c for the record is that I have tried first, and I have to buy anything in the end, to sell, order something else, cancel the order, and finally ordered this one!

moralitee of history, we always come back to the first !!!!!!!

RAPORT qualitée the price is extraordinary, c is the fabrcation Japanese, and everybody knows what that means, c is like in cars, c is the "VERY" serious.

1399 euros for such an instrument is c "donnquot;

c experience with this guitar is that I would buy now.

need anything else.

Fender TLR-135 Richie Kotzen Telecaster
This guitar is made only by fender japan.

handle a button mapple has 22 super jumbo frets, it has a radius of 305 minutes and is quite thick, not to say that c is half a baseball bat!

the pickups are DiMarzio, a "the chopper" position, which is acute in double-single format, and a twang king in the neck position which is a real simple format telecaster.

the bridge is a fixed bridge telecaster modern type.

there on this guitar a 3 position selector, one volume, but no tonalitee.

button vested in the tonalitee on other guitars, acts here as a phase switch in position two of the selector.
So we are left with four sounds instead of 3 on a telecaster standart.


To speak of the handle I would say that it is a bit confusing at first to be that we play on an ibanez guitar style!

The handle is very thick and very well filled by hand.
c is the opposite of all ibanez handles very very end.
against by the key is fairly flat, which is very very nice to dislocate.

each access to acute n is neither easier nor more difficult thing than other telecaster.

The body is ash, so n is not super light, but that s not the mahogany either, so c is a good compromise.

the sound of this guitar has nothing to do with the sound of a "real" telecaster, for it is a telecaster boosted, which can afford to tackle problem without all styles of music.


I was looking for a guitar with the Personalities, especially a guitar with a neck of a man and a guitar with a minimum fault which to fight for that it sounds.

c is done, I also wanted a guitar with a fixed bridge, because I love him too n the vibrato.

this guitar was crystal clear sounds at will, but ausii muffled sounds in jazz.
may have a well gras, but also very very sharp and precise thanks to the double format simple bridge.
Crunch sounds are the strong point of this guitar (if have can find a weak point !!!).
and games with the volume is a pure delight.

THERE is absolutely nothing detestable on this beautiful guitar.


I used the last 4 months, and I apreciated the more, every day passing by.

Special features of, or Particularities that I like best! the guitar itself, which for me is "THE" ultimate guitar.
side face c is a telecaster, and c cell dimension is a gibson SG to summarize the situation.

j've tried a LOT of models of the advan-t aquérir, and I've even bought a guitar that I have sold away and ordered another guitar with him at the last moment j cancels the order for this REPLACED BY!

The report price is qualitée exeptionnel like majoritee Japanese products which fiabilitee, and finishes qualitée n is more to do.

I think this guitar is no longer available outside of Japan, so I'll keep mine for life, and I already think I am even make it to one another by a luthier or the day will be tired.

If I had to make the same choice? without any hesitation.

I recommend this instrument to all those who want a guitar that can abiorder all styles, I have bin told all.
the handle is big, but after c is impossible to board on a stick type ibanez jem.
