FENDER JA-90 JIM ADKINS TELECASTER

When Jimmy Eat World guitarist and frontman Jim Adkins collaborated with Fender® in designing his perfect guitar, the result was his signature JA-90 Telecaster® Thinline. Fender craftsmen sat down with Adkins and went over his old Fender TC-90 spec by spec, making several important changes that subsequently produced this unique model. Features include a mahogany neck set into a semi-hollow ash body, Seymour Duncan® soap-bar pickups, independent volume and tone controls, Adjusto-Matic™ bridge and anchored tailpiece. Sweetness …

The Jim Adkins Telecaster guitar has a mahogany neck set into a semi-hollow ash body, Seymour Duncan® Soapbar pickups, independent volume and tone controls, an Adjusto-Matic; bridge and anchored tailpiece. The high-output Custom Soapbar SP90-3 pickup uses two large ceramic magnets for extra output, compressed dynamics, and sharper attack. The full frequency response delivers extra punch. The Vintage Soapbar SP90-1 has short, wide bobbins for higher output and more powerful midrange than Strat or Tele single-coils. The tone is sweet and smooth. Sweetness, indeed!
