Thinking about this one.

Looks wonderful, and John seems pretty happy with it.

Price point is great as well, about $450.

For sure will load it out with the DiMarzio
D Activatorâ„¢ Bridge DP200 pickups that he uses in his custom shop models.

Double binding, gold flake body and headstock, Les Paul location toggle switch, and two volumes, with the bridge volume front and the neck rear (Actually makes sense if you use the brings mostly.)

Pretty flat 12" neck radius is a nice touch as well.

I had to look at the headstock before I could say I like it.

I like it.

I agree, the headstock on his custom shop J5 looks very goofy !

I wonder if that was a point between him and the Squier designers?

J5: ... and I want my headstock on it.

SD: But we really want to sell these!

That's a lot of the appeal of a "signature" guitar though: the identification with the player whose scrawl is on it. It's association marketing, like Pepsi paying Michael Jackson $4M to make a Pepsi commercial. Every time you hear a MJ tune, you think "Pepsi."

This Tele is not intended to appeal to Floyd, who's 60 years old and plays in a country and western combo. It's designed to appeal to Chad, who is younger and into hardcore metal. It matters to Chad that his guitar's headstock does not match Floyd's. Many guitar players obscess about headstock shapes.

I'm 66 and love this guitar. It will play anything you want. I've played country, blues, classic rock and this guitar has not disappointed me yet.

Great looking guitar. I've thought of getting a J5 model before.

I dig the big pointy headstock on his other model (I guess it's a different model) I think it to be bitchin.
