A double-bound beauty based on John 5's modded Telecaster.

This is a distinctive all-gold model with Frost Gold finish, matching gold headstock, gold hardware and single-ply "gold mirror" plastic pickguard. The one-piece maple neck has a "modern C" profile, a matching Telecaster headstock and a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets.

The custom-designed humbucking pickups use a special dual-volume setup with the bridge pickup control in the front position and the neck pickup control in the back position (John 5 prefers this setup because he spends much time giving the bridge pickup a workout). Rapidly toggling the upper-bout three-way pickup switch gives you 5's signature "kill" effect by turning off the neck pickup volume and leaving the bridge control full up. Case sold separately.
