Fender John 5 Ghost Telecaster with Maple FB in Arctic White
John 5’s supernatural skill and terrifying command over the guitar have cemented his status as a living legend. Best known as the corpse-painted, country-inflected guitar shredder who backed Rob Zombie, John 5 has worked with the biggest names across all walks of music: everyone from David Lee Roth, Alice Cooper and Mötley Crüe to Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and KD Lang. Whether he’s sweeping a swift arpeggio, deftly manoeuvring a breakneck bluegrass run or tapping at the speed of light, John 5’s genre-defying sonic sorcery is always instantly recognizable. From pummeling riffs to incendiary solos, with his Fender® John 5 Ghost Telecaster® in hand, there’s almost nothing he can’t do.
Bewitchingly beautiful, the John 5 Ghost Telecaster features a top-bound alder body and 1-piece maple neck finished entirely in an enchanting Arctic White gloss and accented by striking red appointments and a gleaming mirrored pickguard/control plate. DiMarzio D Activator humbuckers deliver harmonically rich modern crunch, harnessed by a performance-oriented control set with a 3-way toggle mounted to the upper bout for swift pickup switching and pickguard-mounted master volume and arcade-style “kill switch” for rapid-fire stutter effects. Deluxe locking tuners and a 6-saddle tele bridge with block steel saddles ensure rock-solid tuning stability and spot-on intonation. The John 5 Ghost Telecaster is entombed in a custom white tolex hardshell case with a crushed red interior with John 5 Ghost embroidery. Limited to 600 units and sure to be a cult classic, the John 5 Ghost is a Telecaster like no other.
