An icon of alternative rock, J Mascis’ penchant for running Fender® guitars into stacks of amps to create massive fuzzy riffs, incendiary leads and huge hooks have made his work in Dinosaur Jr. and on solo records an indispensable part of rock history, influencing countless artists to follow.
The J Mascis Telecaster® recreates J’s favorite guitar, an original 1958 top-loader Tele®, with which he recorded most of his lead work throughout his career. Features include a Dazzling Bottle Rocket Blue Flake finish, mirrored chrome pickguard, custom J Mascis Telecaster pickups, top-loader bridge and Road Worn® maple neck and hardware.

J MASCIS TELECASTER PICKUPS Voiced to replicate the vintage Tele pickups from his original guitar, these single-coils deliver snappy high and snarly mids that set his amps on fire.
BOTTLE ROCKET BLUE FLAKE FINISH While J’s beloved ‘58 Telecaster was “yellowish” underneath, this re-finish stood the test of time, and now it lives on in his signature model. An uncommon configuration used in the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, this top-loaded Tele bridge provides slightly lower string tension for softer attack and slinky bends.
CUSTOM J MASCIS “C” NECK Shaped to J’s specifications, this neck is comfortably thin with a satin finish that provides a smooth and easy playing experience.
ROAD WORN® NECK AND HARDWARE Our Road Worn® aging process adds tasteful wear to provide a well-loved look and feel.
CHROME MIRROR PICKGUARD Just like J’s original guitar, the J Mascis Telecaster is equipped with a striking chrome mirror pickguard, making an unmistakable statement on stage or at home.
