Despite the lower ratings of others without reviews to back up their opinions, I really like this guitar!! I find this guitar really puts forth the raw sound that I need when playing grunge style music. The neck is a little bigger than what you'd expect in a Tele, but this guitar is more of a Tele-Strat mix. The action is great and the feel is remarkable. Because of the unique configuration, I would recommend that you play this guitar first, then determine if it is right for what you want!!!
I bought this guitar about a year ago; I went to get a 72 tele deluxe, and stumbled upon this beauty. I obviously saw the thing right away, and just had to try it out. This guitar is amazing; it feels like no other Fender. It is so smoother, and it sounds so good. The tone variety is phenomenal it has a supper fat and chunky sound, and an amazing high gritty sound also. My only complaint is trying to keep it clean. This is an incredible guitar if you are looking for a serious shedding machine.
I recently bought a J5 from a local dealer although it was only a couple dollars i thought it would be crap but this is the best fender I've ever played on this guitar is for insane rockers but with c shaped next anyone can pick this up nice sound and when playing sweet dreams it sounded like the actual recording
i played this guitar for 3 days at my music store before buying it cuz i already have 5..i beat on this guitar for an hour and it stayed in tune.even using the tremelo arm..nice versatility in the pickups,from clean to dirty..it seems to weigh more than my gibson les paul. nice sustain and with locking tuners it's a great value..I was looking for a guitar to change different tunings with and this one stays in tune thruout..I am a John5 fan, just can't play like him,but this guitar looks awsome and plays just as well
I played this in a guitar store and it played really well, bends were easy, and other techniques as well. Its pretty versatile because of the three pickups even though it looks like its for metal. Its still best for metal and heavier stuff though. Theres something about the body I don't like appearance wise, and I personally think it would be better with Floyd Rose tremelo, but other than that it is a good guitar. Pickups are decent.
I've installed buckers in Strats and Teles to make them growl, but now Fender has done it. They are relatively sucessful, but the J5 seems a little flat on the high end. The highs don't have that familiar Fender warmth we all love. If all you want to do is rock and power chord, this is your monster. To play a sweet song like Clapton's "Women", forget it. Still, all in all, it is a great effort on Fenders' part. Well worth the money. I just might keep it long enough to become a collectors' piece. I'm pretty sure the suits will yank this one off the market relatively soon. It's just too much distortion to be a "true" Fender. A fantastic rocker, though. JK
I bought this guitar three months ago and it has become my go-to favorite. The sound is thick and chunky and it responds to overdrive and other effects much better than my two Strats (American Deluxe and American Standard). Like others have said, it is a metal oriented guitar, but I play a lot of blues/metal kind of stuff on it as well. Played clean, I would I have to lean to my S1 Strat American Deluxe, but it is close. If this Tele had the S1 setup in it, bringing all three humbuckers in together, it would absolutely rule, hence the 4.5 for features.I bought it not because of John 5, but because it looks cool and I wanted some kind of Tele. The chrome pickguard is kind of pain to keep clean, but it is worth the look, along with the three humbuckers and the big head Strat neck. It is great guitar for the money.
I don't understand these sub-par reviews for this guitar. When I went to purchase this guitar I was considering a Gibson SG or a Telecaster American Deluxe, both of which slightly stretched my budget. I saw this guitar, and thinking it was just a model from some custom shop, I played it, and believed it was out of my range completely. It wasn't. This guitar played better than both of the ones I was planning to purchase. In addition to that, it plays better than my elitist epi les paul standard plus, which is $300 more. The design is flawless; everyone that sees this guitar is wowed by its looks. Finally, the tone is absolutely solid: On the low pickup, it packs a solid metal crunch, while on the higher ones it plays as brightly as a vintage tele. It's nearly perfect, and at this price you can't go wrong.
Enough is said in the above reviews. I felt love at first sight when I saw this guitar. I have always been a Les Paul kind of guy. And the evening I bought this Tele - I was actually browsing for a new Les Paul. BUT BUT - when I had been punishing this one for more than hour, and it was still begging for more - I decided to buy it. I played on it the day after Live on Danish National Radio - and it really did the job complete.
