The Fender Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar delivers the authentic mid-2000s tone and vibe of the Jimmy Eat World frontman's distinctive instrument. Adkins collaborated with Fender to design this semi-hollow guitar, based on his TC-90 Telecaster and hot-rodded with several special modifications that make it the very embodiment of sonic "sweetness".

Semi-Hollow Ash Body Resonates

The JA-90 Telecaster Thinline's semi-hollow ash body provides warmth and resonance, while its maple set neck offers stability and sustain. The combination results in a balanced tone that rings through crunchy overdrive and shimmers on clean settings.

Seymour Duncan Soapbar Pickups Drive

This signature model features a Seymour Duncan SP90-1NRWRP Vintage P-90 neck pickup and SP90-3B Custom P-90 bridge pickup. The P-90 "soapbar" design delivers a punchy yet rounded tone with rich harmonics, ideal for alt-rock sounds.

Modern Specs Accommodate Contemporary Players

With a 9.5" fingerboard radius, medium jumbo frets, and C-shaped neck profile, the JA-90 Telecaster Thinline offers a fast, comfortable playing experience for contemporary guitarists. Its Adjusto-Matic bridge also provides stable intonation for complex chord progressions and melodies.

Premium Appointments Complete the Package

Premium features include a matching painted headstock, Jim Adkins' signature on the back of the headstock, oversized strap buttons, and knurled chrome control knobs. Together with the semi-hollow ash body and high-performance pickups, these appointments make the JA-90 Telecaster Thinline a professional-grade instrument ready for the stage.
