Squier John 5 Telecaster Signature Gold Electric Guitar
Squier John 5 Telecaster Signature Gold Electric Guitar - 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 that appears on his myriad recordings. Eye-catching and thick-sounding, this is a beast of a guitar.
