Fender J5 Tele


We are currently familiar with John 5, whose career became 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. Simply because of his versatility, John 5 turned Fender's endorsed celebrity, advertising for Fender by roving demos over and over as a lecturer of Fender University, John 5's charm extends from the stage slowly to everyday routine. It's no surprise that Fender crazily produced six signature types for him.


  John 5 Tele

Fender J5 Tele demo :



As you may know, John 5 got Tele complex. It's said that he possesses a collection of each of the Telecasters from Esquire era. Therefore when an individual claims there is no means for Telecasters to perform metal music, you are able to completely refute it without having doubt by referring to John 5 as being a sample. To design a signature guitar for an individual who had Tele complex, the instrument should be built as what he likes, so Telecaster is the only choice. Naturally, Fender made great efforts on these instruments, and just because of this, John 5 Signature series, as soon as launched, had become the dream instruments for lots of people.


Fender J5 Tele Headstock


What made John 5 signature products special could be the re-designed headstock, which you have never viewed on the headstock of other Fender instruments. This is the very first time Fender re-designed a headstock for a musician. The distinctive headstock style presented the guitar more balance, a bit less of classic feeling but some more modern day elements. The 3 tuners on both sides are also quite practical.


Fender J5 Tele Pickguard


The shape style of John 5 Series instrument is also a highlight. When John 5 was very first published, it really is the time of mirror pickguard, exampled properly by Squier Black & Chrome the black chrome series, of which the black color chrome Telecaster turned into the fantasy object of some buddies. The primary difference is that an actual chrome metal pickguard was applied on John 5 Signature Telecaster model. Black finish coupled with a metal mirror pickguard, there is certainly nothing cooler than this mixture. Fender issued rather a great deal John 5 signature Telecaster designs, covering the Custom Shop series, the U.S. series, Mexico series, Squier and folk guitars. Because of the small space, we are here only to present 2 far more typical John 5 Telecaster guitars.


Fender J5 Tele Design


This really is a basic John 5 Telecaster instrument with exclusively made headstock, metal mirror pickguard and black color guitar body. The guitar used the design of solitary dual pickups. The pickup switch in John 5 signature had been installed on the guitar, much like a LP guitar. The design is principally due to John 5's private habits. But, for some performers, such a design can result in frequently touching the switch thus influencing the option of pickup switch.


Fender J5 Tele Pickups


J5 Telecaster adopted Fender Enforce pickups in bridge and Fender Twister Tele-type pickups in neck. The high-powered pickups made it simple to be played even in heavy music performing. This guitar is a regular John 5 signature version. We sourced Fender enforce pickups and fender twister tele pickups for customers, but the default pickups used on our guitars are Wilkinson pickups, which is cost-effective and reputable, and may save you lots of money.


We spent much time to review the data and sizes of the authentic guitar and then replicated this specific guitar. Wood selection is really identical to the initial electric guitar, ash body, maple neck and rosewood fretboard.
