Hatsubai's review"Unique Tele"

Fender J5 Triple Tele Deluxe
The John 5 Signature model Triple Tele Deluxe is not your daddy's tele. It still has the familiar alder body and maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, but most everything else is different. For one, this thing has a tremolo, three "wide range" humbuckers, a crazy pickguard and a 70s Fender strat headstock.


I might as well start off by saying I'm not a fan of John 5. The guitar itself is put together fairly well, but the thing can't decide what it wants to be. On the one hand, it has the standard tele ergonomics which I find aren't that great to begin with. Then it has the humbuckers. I'll get to those in the next paragraph. The neck itself isn't a bad neck, and the fretwork was pretty decent on the model I played. I like the fact that it has 22 frets, and I love the fact that it has a 12'' radius instead of the normal 9.5'' radius as seen on so many other standard production Fenders.


The Enforcer wide range humbuckers are not my cup of tea. They sound pretty fat, but they just don't do it for me for whatever reason. A big issue I have with this guitar is that you can't swap pickups without a pickguard change, and considering how different this pickguard is, you need to get it custom made which costs time and money. They seem to work for John 5, but then again, I'd somewhat disagree with that considering I don't care for the guy's music in the first place.


The guitar is definitely an odd one, and I can't really recommend it to anybody. If you're a huge John 5 fan, I guess you'd enjoy this guitar, but I have a feeling most normal guitar players will look elsewhere for a good axe. Like all Fenders, you really need to play them before buying, and this one especially follows that rule.

The grip is not as instinctive as you might think. Finally, let's say it's not easy to switch from one brand to another, especially when it comes to Fender and Gibson (those who have will understand me). If you were blindfolded and that you plug in a Gibson's hands, the grip is so strange that you can not go wrong.
Terms of weight ... Good ... ... it's heavy but reasonable.
The ergonomic shape, very pleasant to forget the beginning of obesity on the guitar ...
This form thus allows raids ranges free and easy.
Standpoint of sound, that's only after almost four years (of loyal service) wiring acting up. To be concrete, this occurs only when I "splits" a microphone to another (his loss). Basically, you gotta go frankly without asking questions.
The sounds are undeniably bluesy. I will not say "Oh, you metalheads-its, go your way" as would be customary, nooo, that to the contrary, this guitar could even meet you! It's just you try and know what you really want to get good.
And, yes, one last detail that's worth. The mechanical blocking: the foot!


I expected a typical metal guitar, but versatile enough to qualify as blues or ballads.
The nuance here is: what is a typical skyscraper blues / country / bluegrass / ... but versatile enough to claim that the metal (type?).
It is therefore indeed the Fender hardcore, but his three Enforcer allow it to spit big fat riffs galore.
Anyway, anyway, the various additional sound effects will only give you a quality result saw the violin very correct this guitar.


I use it for 4 years, have never been disappointed her. She always gets me out the sounds that I expect.
The quality / price is justified, despite the "Made in Mexico" written on the back of the head were it only to owning a Telecaster unique in its triple "Wide Range", with its versatile and sounds look.
I do not regret my purchase at all, this is a good compromise, and then it's right what I needed.

trs beautiful guitar!

however it does have a good idea to install a split or a toggle for the microphones to shuffled.


Yes the handle is super enjoyable, it is taken in hand soon.
It is easy to play.

the guitar is its weight, it trs balanced.

The large black dot is the central micro, which incidentally is excellent but embarrassing! In fact, I had to lower the height of the micro cot strings.

Then the sound is fenderien trs I, who am used to big gibson and other war machines built for the metal (MTM1, LP Zakk Wylde has ben ...), change me!

Indeed, the sound is slamming trs.


Ben for the big metal not super super c, c too loud and a little high perch.
The bridge pickup is loaded with medium and high fever.
But the big rock, rock ettout the rest is that good.
The pickups are perfect. Prcis, slamming ...

The micro environment is excellent and the neck pickup. They have a good personality I do not know how to explain to go try it.
It's sweet sweet hum too good, clean sound and crunch I love it! congestion has pushed many sending ...

sounds good then the middle and round are excellent, clear the bridge pickup, like me, I find it a bit too high perch and loaded into acute, too chubby for my taste, especially in big saturation.

I play on Engl Ritchie and more black cabs engl V30 to correct the bridge pickup, I use an MXR KFK equa in the loop and a kill! I get a big sound to find a very heavy greasy yum yum!


Ben has 15 days I have!
the shape is excellent, ergonomics the ease of play, the pickups neck and middle are good trs!
Then the bridge pickup not top top but it is a matter of taste and its Search.
I think in a register or even heavy rock but then goes for a more modern sound c of death!
Frankly it's a good trs guitar especially for the price! trs versatile with its slightly more inflated than tlcaster "classic".
I tried several before that the tl ... from mexico to us ... There's good and the trs trs bad even on us! but the J5 has a twist ...
Especially if you are looking for a tl try, try try! it's not because it costs 2000 euros it's a good trs guitar you can have a bad surprise!

APRS reflection so I choose to do it again for sure! but for a rock guitar and not the modern!
Besides, it's a real pleasure to connect and get into the AC DC.
It's really a good scratch super fun to play.

Fender J5 Triple Tele Deluxe
It's a Fender Mexican touches palisandre, 22 medium jumbo frets, with 3 microphones Depress Humbruckers Hood chrome tremolo Fender American Vintage. The settings are simplified, one volume and one tone + 3-position selector. The body is alder solidbody.


The handle is soft tees and treble easily accessible, it is a normal sound is top télécaster.Le it's big sound, the Lays of play erases the weight is not negligible.


This guitar is well suited to blues and rock but with my pocket pod, most sounds are very good, with the distortion you get with very good sound.


I own it since December, she looks great, for against the chrome require regular wipe. Previously I had a guitar type strato cheap and when I played on the Black Widow (so named by a trade paper), I understood the need to attack on guitars like this.
The value is very good and when I read the article in the journal, I knew I wanted this model, and I would do the same choice.
