Introducing the Squier J5 Telecaster Guitar

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.
