The neck is relatively thin and enjoyable. The radius is fairly flat, a guitar is the modern type, far from my vintage tele. But not dsagrable not

CHAC up the 21 fret is good, it's easy to bender, but it thickens the 22nd but I put it down to more of the usual 21 frets on a default of guitar.

It is very well balance, all of the same heavy enough.

(EDIT 1 October 2009) the guitar is really very good but the neck and the radius of 12 "I do not agree May is a shame, with the same handle as my other tv, it would have been perfect


I bought it because I needed a guitar that can give me big style hard rock or metal from time to time and since:
- I had not a hundred miles and put in a guitar like that lbr /> - and I exclusively on Telecaster

Squier has dropped this little peak <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="" />

I play with my Bogner Shiva stack, it is relatively efficient and saturated crunch on a catamaran on the clean. Microphones missing substantially all the same DEFINITIONS


I recently, a short week, but I had time to judge it on 4 gigs.
It makes the job very well being asked to do is to say sending heavy.
I like the ease that the right hand to land on the bridge: D so used to the vintage bridge, I was scared but in fact, intuitive.

the price quality ratio is simply amazing, as everything that squier 3 years elsewhere.

No regrets.

+ A flawless finish
+ Config micro
+ The look modern tele
+ Handle pretty nice
- Sold without gig bag
- Micro poorly defined, a mandatory upgrade for use looks pro, but it remains all the same correct: D

Higher Gain's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Squier J5 Telecaster
Made in slanted eyes.

alder body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.

unknown microphones

pretty well finished


So now, at first glance a signature: pout, brand Squier: berrrk.

grip: healthy weight, comfortable handle end


By connecting: clear sound sweet, very nice net.

saturation: very precise, lack of heavy fishing, but precise.

attention I plugged a lamp every 2 bodies, the result will not be the same on an amp like caca prout marshall dfx 15w.


So with a good amplifier is a low end guitar really very decent, offering a great comfort to play and sounds pretty good.

to 475th this guitar is really too expensive for what it is, I had an Ibanez 250th who was of similar quality, a lot of money for unnecessary name John 5.
for the same price are in jackson duncan design with licensed floyd.

So voila, not a guitar but with a disgusting price unusual.
