Hi guys & girls :party:


I'm a wee bit embarrassed to say that I'm actually selling an electric GUITAR!!... :swoon:(oh, the shame!)


It's a Fender Telecaster signature John 5 model, MIM with the rosewood fingerboard, chrome pick-guard, three-way blade pickup selector switch, enforcer humbucker bridge pickup and Fender Telecaster “Twisted" single coil neck pickup.  Controls are volume: neck pickup, volume: bridge pickup.



It's an incredibly versatile guitar, as you might expect of an instrument made to the preferences and specifications of Mr Lowery, himself...


In case you're wondering, who exactly this John 5 “man" is...





No, No!.. Not him...






WHOA!!!  SCARY!...







Yikes!  Scarier...












Anyway, he's an American guitarist who used to perform with David Le Roth and, of course, Marilyn Manson... (ah... That's why he looks that way... 9_9

He's also played with such names as Rob Zombie, Meatloaf and Lynyrd Skynyrd :o 

...not to mention him having a pretty extensive solo career...


I reckon the most unique and “eye-catching" feature, (not literally, unless you were to have a rather unfortunate “guitar spin" accident), is the guitar's three-on-a-side headstock...


...which makes for an incredibly individual and “most excellent" Telecaster!!





The Fender J5 has a modern ‘C' shaped, maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard, 22 “Medium Jumbo" frets (whatever that means)... A synthetic-bone nut, matching black headstock and dot inlays.

The body is made from ash wood finished in gloss black with white borders and a particularly fetching chrome/mirrored pick-guard.

Electronics and hardware include the “twisted" single coil telecaster neck pickup and the “enforcer" humbucking bridge pickup, two volume controls (one to control neck pickup volume, one to control bridge pickup volume) and a three way pickup selector switch (bridge pickup, neck pickup & both pickups simultaneously).  

Needless to say this is an extremely versatile and very attractive looking Fender Telecaster and one that is growing increasingly sought after.


The instrument is in all round fantastic condition, there is marking to the chrome scratch guard (can be seen in second picture below) and a slight, faint mark toward the bottom of the body which does not show in the pictures.  More pictures can be provided if interested...


I am happy to post the Guitar or part-meet for fuel cost.  Collection is also very welcome.


Any questions, please PM...


Here's some more pics of the FENDER JOHN 5 TELECASTER.......


Includes padded gig case... :i-m_so_happy:

I've got the Squier version with the normal Tele headstock and 2 humbuckers. Absolutely wicked little thing.

      For sale is a beautiful example of Martin Petersen's work. It was made for Randy Hope-Taylor about 20 years ago, and the chap I bought it from recently had owned it for many years. It's certainly unusual, sporting a Tele headstock and stacked knobs, and as with all Martin's work, beautifully made. Having played extra long scale 5-string basses for many years, sadly it just doesn't work for me and my gorilla mitts!
      34” scale
      Surf green body with matching tele shaped headstock
      Flamed maple neck / Rosewood fingerboard 
      38mm nut / 19mm string spacing 
      Gotoh GBR640 tuners
      Alder body / parchment pickguard
      Passive / stack knob
      Mørch single coil jazz pickups ( 60s spacing )
      Vintage spiral saddle bridge
      Weight 4.8kg
      It also comes with a chrome neck pickup cover and an additional tort scratchplate. The neck & fingerboard was originally painted white, but the previous owner had this stripped some years ago by Martin Sims, and he did a great job revealing the beauty of the flame maple.
      The only trade I would be interested in is for a 35" scale 5-string with 19mm spacing.

      Fender Marine Layer Reverb, bought from Andertons 4 weeks ago. Absolutely brand new, used twice in lockdown, now surplus as I have acquired a Plethora X5.
      A brilliant pedal particularly for fretless playing with its variation and control. Has a very clever instant battery change door that flips down!
      3 Reverb types - hall, room, special Each reverb type has 2 variations for maximum versatility Control over reverb time, damping, pre-delay and level Effect tails continue when pedal is bypassed for a smooth performance Lets you achieve all manner of reverbs, from slap-back, subtle room ambience, through to huge atmospheric halls and 'shimmer'. So, save on a new one. Insured post at cost.

      Amazing bass that really does feel like a vintage bass.
      The flea bass comes with stacked pots which in my opinion are much better than the VVT controls fitted to most fender jazz basses.
      Comes with  fender gig bag.
      Social distancing collection possible, postage as buyers cost.

      Great Fender Jazzbass 1973. All original with OHSC. Very comfortable player,  less than 9 lbs/4 kgs on my kitchenscale, good balance,
      slim neck and low action. Nice growly fat Jazzbass sound. These early 70's Fenders have something different going on. And oh yes, the bass has
      some love signs but all works fine, including the trussrod.
