John 5 has been made famous by working with the likes of Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and even more so his own solo material. He has been described as a total "fender fanatic" and has even been quoted as saying that “Fender make the greatest guitars ever built, by far”.

It seems fitting that Squier should release a signature model for 2014 based on John's very own work horse Telecaster, The Squier J5 Telecaster sees a product that comes with all the functions and features that enable guitarists to get that thick and heavy sound that John loves.

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” 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.
