Introducing the Squier J5 Telecaster Guitar

Posted by sarabdeep Tuesday, October 6, 2009

The new J5 Telecaster has all the brains, brawn and beauty of its Fender big brothers, but with a standard Telecaster headstock and a very friendly price tag. It’s based on 5’s frequently modded workhorse Telecaster pieced together at the Fender Custom Shop.

OK, make with the features: The J5 Telecaster has a double-bound alder body with a gloss black polyester finish, a polished stainless steel pickguard and chrome hardware. That means it’s extremely cool looking. 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—John 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.
