Guitars of the Stars, Volume 1
During the 2009 Rob Zombie tour, John 5 brought a whole boat of Teles. He relied on a (from left to right) Fender Custom Shop rosewood Tele with humbuckers, a baritone Sub-Sonic Tele, a Buck Owens-styled John 5 Custom Tele, a Custom Shop John 5 doubleneck with baritone and standard necks, two backup Flathead Teles (green and sparkle), a relic’d Flathead with FilterTrons, and his first John 5 signature Tele with a Bigsby. Most of John 5’s guitars are stocked with humbuckers and Twisted Tele pickups. Not pictured is John’s go-to guitar for live and recording, the prototype for his signature Tele.
