A signature model designed by a bonafide Tele freak! This double-bound beauty is based on the frequently modified workhorse of a Telecaster pieced together for John 5 by the folks at the Fender Custom Shop. The J5's distinctive look includes black and chrome, an alder body finished in gloss black, black painted headstock, and a striking polished stainless steel pickguard. Instead of the customary master volume and tone, each custom-designed humbucker has a dedicated volume control. John 5 takes the Telecaster places no one else has gone before, and the Squier J5 Telecaster Electric Guitar is a double-bound beauty based on the frequently modified workhorse of a Telecaster guitar pieced together for him by the folks at the Fender Custom Shop. The Squire J5 guitar has John 5's distinctive black and chrome look-an alder body finished in gloss black, 22-fret maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard and black painted headstock, a striking polished stainless steel pickguard, and chrome hardware. The guitar's custom-designed humbucking pickups are operated via a unique dual volume set up with the bridge pickup control in the front position and the neck pickup in the back position. John 5 prefers this setup as he spends a majority of time giving the bridge pickup a workout. Using rapid movement of the 3-way toggle between positions, you can get that signature "kill" effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control full up.
