Fender Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline Guitar

Here we have another signature model, this time a collaboration between Fender and Jimmy Eat World’s axeman Jim Adkins was created after Adkins challenged Fender to build his perfect guitar, the result is a semi-hollow body telecaster model with soapbar P-90 pickups that has been called Fender Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline Guitar, so let’s take a look at its specification.

The Fender Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline Guitar features ash body, mahogany neck, C neck profile, rosewood fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, 25.5″ scale length, Adjusto-matic bridge with anchored tailpiece, Seymour Duncan SP90-1NRWRP Vintage (neck) and SP90-3B Custom (bridge) P-90 pickups, 3-way pickup switch and 2 volume and 2 tone controls.

This signature guitar, that comes signed by Adkins in the back of the headstock, is not one of those $3,000 model that makes the fans think I wish I have $3,000, because the price of the Fender Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline Guitar is $750, and is now available.

  1. If it was a gibson, it would be $3000. More like a cross-breed between the tele custom and tele deluxe from ’72, but w/mahogany neck. It is sorta’ Gibson-esque, just MUCH less expensive.

  2. I own it as of 530 pm today. I have not stopped playing since I popped her cherry ( now midnight). For $750 your getting a well made guitar with nice tele action. I recommend a tube amp for this guitar to pair with the P90’s. It has a nice balance and sounds sick. I give it a 8.9 overall, compared to a 78 strat at 10.0.
