Fender Custom Shop John 5 Signature model Telecaster in Gloss Black finish with matching headstock made in 2008. This very cool guitar features a double bound select ash body with a maple neck and rosewood fingerboard. Equipped with a Seymour Duncan “Hot-Rails” in the bridge position and a Fender Custom Shop “Twisted Tele” Single-coil in the neck position controlled by a master volume & master tone knob with a 3-way pickup selector. The all chrome hardware looks evil in the dark and blinding in the light which is perfect for any live gig! The tuning machines are Fender locking deluxe tuners which make changing strings with the factory Bigsby a breeze as well as hold excellent tuning stability. The chrome pick-guard, chrome bridge, chrome knurled knobs and chrome control plate all mold together with the dark gloss black finish with maching headstock for a work of art that shows constant reflections. The 25.5” scale length neck has a 12” fingerboard radius, a modern C shape neck profile, 22 frets and white dot inlays. The previous owner was able to have John 5 sign the guitar and the strap with a photo included of him and John 5 at a meet & greet provided. This signature perviously was personalized “To Mike” however we were able to removed this part pf the signature without damaging the original guitar finish.

This guitar is in excellent condition and is a fantastic guitar whether you are a player, a fan of John 5 or a fan of extremely cool guitars. The signature on the body was done very tastefully and was done in a spot where you can still play the guitar without constantly rubbing against it. If you do not care for the signature it is easily removable. There are minor surface scratches, and scuffs but they are very light and very difficult to see with the naked eye or photograph. The gloss black finish and mirror hardware show fingerprints and scratches very easily so while this guitar is clean now, it can become dirty and show flaws very quickly if you are not careful. This guitar also comes with a guitar strap signed by John 5, the COA and the original hardshell case with crushed red velvet interior. Freshly re-strung with 9-42 gauge strings and setup in standard tuning this guitar shreds and is ready to rock!
