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.Features include 5s distinctive black-and-chrome look, a double-bound alder body with a gloss black polyester finish, a polished stainless steel pickguard and chrome hardware. The one-piece maple neck has a modern C profile, a matching black Telecaster headstock and a 12-radius rosewood 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 5s signature kill effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control full up.Now also available in an all-gold model with Frost Gold finish, matching gold headstock, gold hardware and single-ply gold mirror plastic pickguard.
