6-String Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, and Rosewood Fingerboard - 2 Custom Designed Humbucking Pickups

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.

Squier John 5 Signature Telecaster Features:

  • Black with chrome hardware or Frost Gold with gold hardware
  • Modern "C"-shaped neck profile
  • Custom-designed humbucking pickups
  • Special dual-volume control setup
  • Matching headstock
  • Double-bound body

White Double Binding

For an especially refined look, the J5 Telecaster features elegant white binding on the top and bottom of its toneful alder body.

Three-Way Pickup Switch

The three-way pickup switch mounted on the upper bout of the J5 Telecaster selects between bridge pickup alone, both pickups at once or neck pickup alone for a wealth of tonal variation.

Modern Neck with "C"-Shaped Profile

This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish—ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
