John 5 has been quoted as saying the Telecaster is "the greatest guitar ever built, by far." He had his first Fender signature model created for him way back in 2003, and seemingly his love for this instrument has not diminished since then. This sweet signature Squier J5 Telecaster features a John 5 custom design, hardcore hardware, and nasty electronics. Whether you're a fan of John 5 or a guitarist looking for an affordable, quality, ultra-powerful Telecaster, the Squier J5 Telecaster is sure to satisfy.

John 5 Custom Design
John 5 is a unique guitarist. He has been involved with some major acts, some of which you wouldn't expect to ever hear of in the same sentence, like Ricky Martin and Marilyn Manson. Nonetheless, he succeeds in accompanying all of them with his amazingly versatile playing ability. This J5 Tele reflects that. Built with an alder body, the J5 Telecaster comes in your choice of some awesome finishes with a classy bound top and back. It sports a super-fast neck carved from maple into a modern "C" profile and an Indian laurel fretboard with a special 12" radius for great feel and sustain.

Hardcore Hardware
The hardware on this design is built to withstand some epic playing by the likes of John 5. A 6-saddle Tele bridge with humbucker cutout holds the strings tightly in position. Standard die-cast tuning machines equip the matching headstock, and knurled flat-top control knobs sit on the body, tightened to assure no accidental adjustment when playing hard.

Nasty Electronics
Pickups in a Telecaster created for John 5 are not taken lightly. These Custom Humbucking pickups are wired to scream. The ceramic magnet pickup and the bridge and alnico 5 magnets at the neck afford a wide range of sound, controlled through a 3-position toggle switch. This J5 Tele sports two volume controls with no tone, the way John 5 likes it. At John 5's request to avoid knocking the pickup switch while playing, the pickup toggle sits in a unique position at the upper bout instead of in the standard position near the knobs.

Wouldn't know it was a Squier if it didn't say it


This guitar is sweet. You really need to play this guitar if you're thinking about getting it. You will be sold in a second. I don't have a lot of money to spend on big name guitars, and I feel like I stole this bad boy. I was planning on saving up to gut this guitar completely and go with all upgrades available. I can say that as of now, it would be a giant waste of money. My hat is off to Squier on the J5 goldy
