Product Description

A Squier signature model, the J5 Telecaster, is a double-bound beauty based on his oft-modded workhorse Telecaster. 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).

Squier John 5 J5 Telecaster Electric Guitar Features
  • Matching Painted Headstock
  • Bound Top and Back
  • Silver Squier Decal
  • Toggle Switch Mounted on Upper Bout
  • Chrome Switch Tip
  • No Tone Control
  • Neck and Bridge Volume Controls are in Opposite Orientation
  • White Pearloid Dot Position Inlays
  • Narrow Dot Spacing
  • Synthetic Bone Nut 
Features include 5’s distinctive black-and-chrome look, a double-bound alder body with a gloss black polyester finish, a polished stainless steel pickguard and chrome hardware or the all-gold model with Frost Gold finish, matching gold headstock, gold hardware and single-ply gold mirror plastic pick guard. The one-piece maple neck has a modern C-shaped profile, a matching black Telecaster headstock and a 12”-radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets.

The custom-designed humbucking pickups use a special dual-volume setup with the bridge pickup control in the front position and the neck pickup control in the back position (5 prefers this setup because he spends much time giving the bridge pickup a workout). Rapidly toggling the upper-bout three-way pickup switch gives you 5’s signature kill effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control full up.

Everything they said it was and more!

Product Review

I have been looking at this guitar for some time. Finally, decided to pull the plug and I was not disappointed. First of all the guitar is beautiful. I love the binding. The neck is perfect for me. The setup out of the box was great and the guitar sounds awesome. For the price you cannot go wrong. Oh and I keep forgetting it is a Squire!

The best and most simple bang for the buck!

Product Review

My gold J5 was knocked over by my sons cat while playing around, and the guitar did a face plant, the only damage it cause was my toggle switch.After replacing the switch, it took a lickin and kept on tickin! The set up on the guitar is simple and perfect. My first and only Squire,one of my best choices I've made in a guitar,and I'm a Les Paul player! AMS is the best musical company hands down. I've been purchasing from them since 1997 and I'll continue buying from them for all my musical needs. I've purchased all my Les Paul's through they're payment plans and I've been able to gig with quality on stage for years! It's a beautiful thing.

For a Squier, it plays fantastic

Product Review

I was skeptical at first before buying this guitar for the main reason that I have had problems with other Squier models I’ve purchased in the past. But I decided to give it a chance simply because I adored the gold color of the guitar. Well when I plugged it in, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe the sound that it produced. My favorite tone that I have always used is the fabled “woman” tone and this guitar has it beautifully....highly recommend instrument...you won’t be disappointed...

ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC

Product Review

I was absolutely floored at the quality of this guitar. I sincerely think it can hold its own with the American made Fender guitars. John 5 is not only one of the best guitarist ever, but he has endorsed a fantastic product modeled after his personal Fender guitars. If you are a fan of John 5, or simply want a high quality starter guitar - this is the one.

"I love this thing"

Product Review

this is a great guitar! I can't think of any other guitars under $500.00 that sound this good and look this good. It reminds me of a les paul weight wise but lots of tone!
