Squier® and guitarist Joe Trohman (the Damned Things/Fall Out Boy) have teamed up to create an unusual new take on the venerable early-’70s Fender® Telecaster Deluxe. The Joe Trohman Telecaster guitar is a triple-pickup beauty that rocks a ton of tones with easy switching features. Like all Squier guitars, it delivers value that’s as huge as its sound.
Features include an alder body, C-shaped maple neck, large 1968-style Stratocaster® headstock with Trohman’s signature on the back, rosewood Fingerboard with 12” radius and 22 jumbo frets, two open-coil humbucking pickups (neck and bridge), single-coil Stratocaster® middle pickup, five-position rotary pickup selector switch, upper bout kill switch, three-ply black-white-black pickguard, skirted black/chrome amp control knobs, vintage-style six-saddle strings-through-body hardtail bridge, chrome hardware, die-cast tuners and Two-color Sunburst finish.

Amazing construction and finish for an under $600.00 guitar!! (I actually paid $280.00 from Musician's Friend for a Labor Day sale, so that makes it all the more stupendous!!). The playability and tone are almost as good as my $1500.00 Tele and my $2500.00 Strat!! I don't necessarily like the way the pickups can be switched. Makes it difficult when use a pick to do so, but again the price makes everything beautiful. Also really question the use of a kill switch!! I guess Trohman uses that feature a lot. I plan to change the knob on the pickup selector switch to make it easier to use. Overall an A+
