The Squier J5 Tele is a massively modified Telecaster, with kill switch and custom designed pickups. Co-designed by John 5 himself, this Black, bound tele is modeled on one of John's favourite guitars.

The unusual metal touches complement a comfortable, modern profile neck and 12" radius board. Customised electronics give you even more scope to get the dark, foreboding John 5 sound on this cool Squier Telecaster.

Here's what Squier say about the J5 Telecaster

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" 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.
