A signature Thinline with a pair of P-90s!

A collaboration between Jim Adkins and Fender, the Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline is a re-creation of Adkins' old TC-90 - with some special touches specifically for this new model. The Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline's semi-hollow ash body is joined to a set maple neck with a rosewood fingerboard - a great combination that produces a warm tone with a nice edge. Pickups are Seymour Duncan soapbars, and a Adjusto-matic bridge with anchored tailpiece round out the hardware. The Jim Adkins JA-90 Telecaster Thinline is a sweet axe for any style!

  • The story behind this Tele

The story behind this Tele

When Jim Adkins, guitarist and frontman for Jimmy Eat World, challenged Fender to design his perfect guitar, a collaboration began that resulted in the JA-90 Telecaster Thinline. Fender sat down with Adkins and went over his old Fender TC-90 spec by spec, making some important changes that subsequently produced this unique model. The significant features include a maple neck set into a semi-hollow ash body, Seymour Duncan soapbar pickups, independent volume and tone controls, an Adjusto-Matic bridge, and an anchored tailpiece.

Built for tone

The semi-hollow ash body merges classic Tele tone with the added body and resonance of a semi-hollowbody guitar. The set maple neck bolsters the sustain, and the rosewood fingerboard adds warmth to the tone. A pair of Seymour Duncan soapbars provide vintage-tinged P-90 tones that cut through the mix.
