John 5 owns a Fender Telecaster from almost every year and since we’re celebrating our 60th anniversary of the Tele, that’s obviously quite a large collection. As he’s always telling us, owning Telecasters is “an obsession,” which made for no surprise when he dropped by the Fender Showcase in Burbank, Calif., on Thursday and took home a brand new Fender Custom Shop Snake Head Tele.
The Snake Head, according to MusicZoo.com is Limited Edition, with only 60 made, to celebrate 60 years of Fender’s Telecaster model.
