Fender John 5 Signature Telecaster J5 Tele Black 2006 60th Anni 02219
This is a 2006 60th Anniversary Artist Series John 5 Telecaster in black. Well known as one of the best contemporary guitarists in many styles, this guitar is made in Mexico and has the very distinctive "boat oar" headstock. It's a very rare model at this point. Comes stock with a Custom Shop Twisted Tele pickup in the neck and Enforcer humbucker in the bridge position. Classic 60s C-shape neck with a nice flat 12" radius for that low shredder action.
The guitar is in very good playing condition with no issues. It has one visible ding on the rear edge (see pics). Other than that just minor scuffs and tiny hairline fractures at the neck joint, really too faint for the camera to capture. They are common on bolt-on Fenders and are not deep or structural. Frets are in good condition. Weight is 9 pounds, 13 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!
What You Get
-- Full setup, cleaning, and new strings.
-- FREE USA shipping.
-- 30-day return policy.
-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.
All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
