Fender JA 90

Summary: I'm an old rock bass player, who play's guitar on my own music. I purchased the JA 90, a while back, because of the P90 pickups (Seymour Duncan SP 90-1 and SP 90-3) and the Telecaster look and feel.
Summary: For the money, an outstanding guitar. My last two guitar purchases (not from Andertons) have left me shy of four figure sums of money, in return for medium levels of satisfaction. But the JA-90 has just blown me away...on every level.
Summary: Ever since I saw Josh Homme play a red Telecaster with a black scratch plate I fell in love with the guitar. And after searching for a good month or so i discovered the JA-90. And after I finally tried the guitar out at Andertons on Sunday it's safe to say I found my perfect Tele.
Summary: Very appealing guitar although the overly light strings that were initially fitted to it made it feel rather cheap and disappointing. But after spending a while with it I decided to take the plunge and I'm so glad I did. With a set of Ernie Ball 10s it's like a different instrument.
Summary: As im sure you can see this is the custom 70's style fender telecaster for lead guitarist Jim Adkins of Jimmy Eat World, its light comfortable with a C shape neck, the P90 pick ups are powerful and crunchy when driven and when using the middle toggle the pick ups given a nice hard rock sound.
Summary: I have been fortunate to have owned a variety of guitars over the past years, from headless Hohners, Japanese made Yamahas and odd coloured telecasters!! The Jim Adkins tele is without doubt one of the best guitars I have owned. It simply ticks a lot of boxes.
Summary: Well I thought about buying the JA90 for a while I read all about it and it sounded like the perfect blend for me. My Brother told me a long time ago" there is a Telecaster out there for all of us my boy" and by george he was right.
Summary: The Fender Telecaster JA90 is a great guitar, it gives you the feel of a Tele but the sound similar to a Les Paul with its P90 pick ups. The construction of the guitar allows for smooth playability with its set neck carved to look like a neck through construction.
