      A high-octane signature Telecaster with modern shreddability!

      The Fender J5 Telecaster is a new-millennial update of a timeless classic. Inspired by one of our favorite uber-shredders, John 5, the J5 Triple Tele Deluxe puts a fiendishly ferocious spin on the always-popular '70s-era Tele Deluxe design.

      A study in black and chrome, the J5 electric guitar has three screaming hot high-output Enforcer humbucking pickups in a sleek black double-bound body adorned with a vintage tremolo bridge and a flash chrome pickguard guaranteed to blind 'em all the way in the back row.

      Appointments include an alder body, gloss urethane finish maple neck with '60s C profile, matching black-painted large '70s-style Stratocaster headstock, bound top and back, black switch and tremolo arm tips, and the toggle switch mounted on upper bout.

      Includes gig bag.

        Comments about Fender J5 Triple Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        Just received my J5 and played out with her tonight. This is a fantastic tele for the money! If you're looking for a versatile guitar that can delivers multiple tones, this is for you. The backers are nice and beefy on the neck but the bridge pup offers plenty of treble for solos. Unlike typical tele necks, the 12"radius will let you bend into tomorrow without fretting out and yet it's still a very comfortable neck for chording. This is coming from a guy with average sized hands. Sustain is incredible and this thing sounds amazing clean and even better with overdrive. I'm using a Visual Sound Double Trouble in conjunction with a T.Rex. Here's the bad: 1. this thing weighs about the same as a Les Paul. Enough said. Some people care about weight others don't. 2. It comes strung with lights and of course the tremolo is set up to accommodate. Be prepared to make an adjustment if you're going to play a heavier gauge string. 3. The enforcer pups do produce a little noise...especially when your signal is pushed so be sure to tweak your noise gate accordingly. The rest is nothing but sweet tone and great looks. Keep that microfiber cloth handy for the chrome! Bottom line. If you play out on a regular basis, this is a very solid and great sounding guitar. You won't be disappointed!

        Comments about Fender J5 Triple Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        This is one of the best off the cuff purchases I've ever made, and it brough me back into the Fender family. A super versitile guitar, the MIM J5 Tele can produce an almost limitless tone palate. Everything works. It stays in tune well, but as the previous reviewer corectly points out, the nut does NOT keep the strings in place during heavy play. A string tree or locking nut is a must right off the bat.

        The truth is, many of the higher end MIM guitars in the Fender line are starting to rival USA Fenders in terms of quality, while being MUCH more interesting. Though I play bass primarily, I do enjoy jamming on this guitar, and I have played it live a few times. I had zero problems with it staying in tune, even after heavy use of teh whammy bar over several months! That is a mirical of Baby Jesus! I love Tele's, and I am always looking for something cool, real, and versitile in a Tele bodied guitar. This was an immediate Ahh Ha! moment for me when I saw it, picked it up, and then started playing it. Yes the pickups are a bit overwound. I like that. I do wish there was a bit more bit and snarl in the bridge P/U. Bit I can easily overcome that with my pedal board (though I'd rather not). I'll tell you what, blending the neck and middle P/U makes for some warm sweet tone and sounds. Totally dig it. I can go from playing Foolish Game right into Back in Black with this guitar, no problem!

        I can't think of many other guitars I would want more than this one, especially in a live sound situation, for even five hundred more. Now, only if they would offer it in a V neck...

        Great Tele for everything

        By Rick B.

        from Central New Jersey

        Comments about Fender J5 Triple Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        If I lost it, I'd buy another without a doubt!
        I've been playing for years and have owned almost 30 guitars, so I have a lot to compare this to. Here goes...
        Pros - Excellent pups. Although they're on the overwound side, Tele twang and compression are there. The bite of the bridge pup is missing, but it'll get you by. The neck is beautiful. The back is a medium C shape, the fretboard is flat and fast, and the frets are big enough to bend into tomorrow. Fit and finish is excellent all around. Stays in tune with a lot of whammy use.
        Cons - It's a slight bit neck heavy. Take your hand off and the headstock heads south. The whammy bar hits the tone knob if you swing it back that far. The high E string pops out of the nut often. I might have to put a string tree on that. The middle pup might get in the way of your picking. I have to remember it's there so I don't hit it while playing.
        The trem, switch, pots, pups, and tuners are all excellent quality. The wood has a nice ring. The frets are nicely done and level. Paint is great. All fit and finish is noteworthy.
        There's a lot of hardware here for the price. It's a bit on the pricey side for a Mexi-made, but you get a lot too. This is a buy and drive guitar. There's no room for upgrades, as it's all here. Overall, it's a great playing and looking axe.
