    Product Description

    John 5 is a self-described ‘Fender fanatic’ with a jaw-dropping collection of his favorite instrument, the Telecaster (‘the greatest guitars ever built, by far,’ in his words). His Squier signature model, the J5 Telecaster, is a double-bound beauty based on his oft-modded workhorse Telecaster. Expect many player-centric twists out from this instrument that bears the name of player that demands the best.

    My first tele style guitar....
    What is your opinion of this product?
    After a lifetime of allegiance to strat-styled bodies (40+ years), I decided to try a tele. I was a bit skeptical of Squiers, which always struck me as low-rent Fenders. Here, though, I was happily surprised. The Squier J5 appealed to me first on looks -- the black finish and chrome hardware and pickguard and double binding on the body looks badass. When the guitar arrived, I quickly saw that it looks better than in the photos. It's heavy and feels built like a tank -- everything is solid and feels well-engineered. I had checked numerous J5 videos on youtube and most seemed dedicated to shredding on it, which is fine and well, but I wondered about its clean tones? Again, happily surprised -- running a few of the presets on a new Fender Mustang amp, I quickly found that it can really deliver clean sustain with an edge of 'bite' and sweet harmonic overtones that just go on and on. For the money, I'd say this guitar can't be beat. Happy to have one.

    This guitar rocks! It is cosmetically stunning, the tone is distinct and sexy sustain, the neck is slick and the action is of high caliber, I never would have thought to acquire a Squier, the most affordable guitar I've purchased in 18 years, thank you John 5 for the inspiration and American Musical for your great service over the years!

    Better than expected & great value
    What is your opinion of this product?
    As is this is a great guitar especially with the price attached to it. Aesthetically, it's a stunning guitar. The set up was almost perfect out of the box. The pickups are well balanced and get a really good sound clean & dirty. A very comfortable instrument to play. I wish it had a compound radius fretboard & a tone control but I knew it didn't going in so I'm not docking it any stars (and I'm already changing the pickups & adding a tone control this weekend. I'll do the neck later.) Don't let the inexpensive Squier name scare you. This is a great buy for the money. Well done.
