Here we have a new Squier John 5 J5 Signature Telecaster electric guitar in Frost Gold featuring a custom humbucker with a ceramic magnet in the bridge and a custom humbucker with an alnico 5 magnet in the neck.
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.
Features include 5’s distinctive black-and-chrome look, a double-bound alder body with a gloss black polyester finish, a polished stainless steel pickguard and chrome hardware. The one-piece maple neck has a “modern C”-shaped profile, 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 (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 5’s signature “kill” effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control full up.
Now also available in an all-gold model with Frost Gold finish, matching gold headstock, gold hardware and single-ply “gold mirror” plastic pick guard.
