The Squier J5 Telecaster solidbody electric guitar puts modern guitar icon John 5's axe in your hands! Using a custom humbucker with a ceramic magnet in the bridge position and an Alnico V-based humbucker in the neck, the J5 Telecaster makes a great tone machine. The controls are also specially configured for John 5's style of play. Though it's perfectly capable of clean snap, this Telecaster definitely shines when it's time to crank up and cut loose. Now you can wreak your own guitar havoc with the formidable J5 Telecaster!

Squier J5 Telecaster Signature Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Hot pickups, custom controls
  • This guitar is built for power
  • It's a Tele and then some

Hot pickups, custom controls

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 3-way pickup switch gives you 5's signature kill effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control all the way up.

This guitar is built for power

This unusual Telecaster produces high-octane tone and output for great modern sounds. A sizzling bridge humbucker uses a ceramic magnet, while the custom neck humbucker has Alnico V magnet material. You also get a 3-way pickup selector switch and distinctive gold hardware.

It's a Tele and then some

Based on a classic Tele design, the heart of the J5 Telecaster is an instantly recognizable alder body, a maple neck with a very comfortable modern C-shape, dual volume controls, and a rosewood fingerboard. This axe also features die-cast tuning machines, a 6-saddle Tele humbucker bridge, and a bound top and back.

A Wild Workhorse Instrument

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 that appears on his myriad recordings. Eye-catching and thick-sounding, this is a beast of a guitar.
