Squier by Fender J5 Telecaster, Black
Squier by Fender J5 Telecaster, BlackDetails
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, which was pieced together at the Fender Custom Shop. The man has a lengthy and impressive resume that includes his famous stint with shock rocker Marilyn Manson and his current gig with Rob Zombie, but the list also includes diverse work with some names you might not expect, including Lita Ford, K.D. Lang, David Lee Roth, Meatloaf, Salt-N-Pepa, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others.

Features include John 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. The one-piece maple neck has a modern C shape, 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). Rapid 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.
