Note from Admin: Hi all, sorry John 5 has not been able to answer the outstanding #AskJohn5 questions. With the holidays, working on the new Rob Zombie album, “It’s Alive” promotion and preparing for the tour with The Creatures, it has been hard to pin John down to get this done. However once John has finished touring, these will be answered. – Emma (J5s web manager)

Electronics in John’s tele

I upgrade and repair guitars and recently got my boyfriend the Squire J5 Tele but I want to mod it to have the horn selector, kill switch and what not.  

My questions are;

What mini pinball killswitch is that?  

Is the selector a switchcraft?

What material does John use for the nut?

Is the killswitch an add on because the neck pickup doesn’t fully go silent when rolled all the way off and the bridge all the way on even with only the bridge selected or is that a wiring mistake at Squire?

I could go on and on!   My boyfriend LOVES this guitar right out of the box!   He would just like the little add ins that John has on his too.  

If anyone knows John’s tech and could get me in touch with them, that would rock!

Thanks guys!!


Yup. My pic is sideways because I’m internet inept! Lol
