John 5 Gets Another Signature Guitar: Fender's J5 Triple Tele

Fender J5 Triple Tele DeluxeAccording to their website Fender has released yet another John 5 Signature instrument––the new J5 Triple Tele Deluxe––which looks to be based on a classic ’70s Tele Deluxe, albeit with some modern, high-power modifications. John 5’s other signature model guitar is of course the J5 Bigsby Telecaster.

Unique features of the J5 Triple Tele Deluxe will include a vintage ’70s-styled Strat headstock, chromed brass pickguard, three high-output Enforcer “Wide Range” humbuckers (chrome covered,) vintage synchronized tremolo, 3-way pickup toggle on upper bout, and body & back binding.

Otherwise, the guitar will sport an alder body, maple ’60s C-shaped neck, 25.5“ scale length, rosewood fretboard (12” radius) with dot inlays, master volume & tone controls, Fender/Schaller vintage “F”-style tuners, and chrome hardware.

The guitar is expected to ship with a Deluxe Gig Bag, but so far there is no word on MSRP or street price.
