Fender Squier John 5 Signature Series Telecaster Rosewood Fretboard

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.

A double-bound magnificence based on John 5's modded Telecaster.

This is a unique all-gold model with Frost Gold finish, matching gold headstock, gold hardware and single-ply gold mirror plastic pickguard. The one-piece maple neck has a modern C profile, a matching Telecaster headstock and a 12 inch 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 (John 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.
