Telecaster J5


We are already familiar with John 5, whose career grew to become much brighter since he left Marilyn Manson. From Rob Zombie to Lynyrd Skynyrd, he seems to show up in any style bands and perform really well. Just because of his versatility, John 5 grew to become Fender's endorsed celebrity, advertising for Fender by roving demos over and over as a lecturer of Fender University, John 5's charm stretches from the stage gradually to everyday life. It's no surprise that Fender crazily released six signature models for him.

  John 5 Tele

Telecaster J5 demo :



As we know, John 5 got Tele complex. It's pointed out that he has got a collection of all the Telecasters from Esquire age. Thus when somebody says there's no means for Telecasters to perform metal music, you are able to firmly oppose it with no doubt by referring to John 5 as a sample. To create a signature guitar for a person who had Tele complex, the instrument must be created as what he wants, so Telecaster may be the only option. Of course, Fender done great efforts on these electric guitars, and just because of this, John 5 Signature series, once launched, became the dream guitars for a lot of people.


Telecaster J5 Headstock


What made John 5 signature designs unique may be the re-designed headstock, which you have never noticed on the headstock of other Fender guitars. This really is the very first time Fender re-designed a headstock for an artist. The distinctive headstock style earned the guitar more balance, a little less of classic feeling but some more present day components. The 3 tuners on each side are also really functional.


Telecaster J5 Pickguard


The contour design of John 5 Series instrument is also a highlight. When John 5 was first released, it really is the time of mirror pickguard, exampled nicely by Squier Black & Chrome the black chrome series, of which the black color chrome Telecaster became the daydream object of some buddies. The difference is that a genuine chrome metal pickguard was applied on John 5 Signature Telecaster model. Dark colored finish coupled with a metal mirror pickguard, there's nothing cooler than this combination. Fender introduced really a great deal John 5 signature Telecaster types, covering the Custom Shop series, the U.S. series, Mexico series, Squier and folk guitars. Simply because of the small space, we are here just to introduce two far more typical John 5 Telecaster guitars.


Telecaster J5 Design


This really is a typical John 5 Telecaster electric guitar with particularly created headstock, metal mirror pickguard and dark-colored guitar body. The guitar adopted the style of single dual pickups. The pickup button in John 5 signature has been attached to the guitar, similar to a LP guitar. The style is mainly due to John 5's private habits. However, for some performers, such a style may cause frequently reaching the switch thus affecting the option of pickup switch.


Telecaster J5 Pickups


J5 Telecaster adopted Fender Enforce pickups in bridge and Fender Twister Tele-type pickups in neck. The high-powered pickups made it easy to be played even in heavy music playing. This instrument is a standard John 5 signature model. We sourced Fender enforce pickups and fender twister tele pickups for consumers, however the default pickups used on our guitars are Wilkinson pickups, which is cost-effective and reliable, and may save you a lot of money.


We spent much time to check the information and dimensions of the original guitar and after that duplicated this particular instrument. Wood selection is really much like the original electric guitar, ash body, maple neck and rosewood fretboard.
