A Brief Introduction to John 5 and Fender John 5 Telecaster
John William Lowery, best known by the stage name John 5, is an American heavy metal/country guitarist. John 5 was bestowed on him in 1998 when he left David Lee Roth and joined the industrial metal group Marilyn Manson as their guitarist
We’re currently familiar with John 5, whose career turned much brighter since he left Marilyn Manson. From Rob Zombie to Lynyrd Skynyrd, he seems to show up in any style bands and perform really well. Simply because of his versatility, John 5 turned Fender’s endorsed celebrity, promoting for Fender by roving demos over and over as a lecturer of Fender University, John 5’s charm stretches from the stage gradually to daily life.
Furthermore, he is a self-described “Fender fanatic” with a jaw-dropping collection of his favorite instrument, the Telecaster (“the greatest guitars ever built, by far, hands down,” he said). Such is his love for the instrument that no surprise Fender crazily introduced 6 signature versions for him. The 3-color sparkle stripes telecaster in the below picture is one of John 5’s favorite guitars. The Fender J5 Telecaster is John 5’s signature model Telecaster, and was designed in part by John 5 himself.
