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.
