Ah crap! Swine flu is here!

Hmm.. well.. the article goes that a returning Malaysian student who was studying in the US came back to KL and was a carrier of Swine Flu… Deng it! 

They should have some sort of mendatory medical check-ups before deperting from all airports before the flight and also after the flight. And if the dude has the flu, get that ‘SWINE’ into a hospital! lols…

Here is the article (click here). Enjoy…

There are obviously a few differences as you can compare the specs in the links below:

Compare and contrast between the Fender J5 and the Squier J5:

The shade of black is of the Fender J5 & the Squier J5 differs.. but looks the same to me….

Body of the Fender J5 is Ash, while the Squier’s is Alder.

Neck of the Fender J5 is Maple, ’60’s “C” Shape with Gloss Urethane Finish, while the Squire’s is Maple, with Modern “C” Shape with Gloss Polyester Finish.

Both the J5 Fender & Squier uses a Rosewood 12″ radius (305 mm) Fingerboard.

Both also have 22 medium Jumbo frets

The Fender J5 uses a Custom Shop “Twisted” Tele Single-Coil (Neck) and the “Enforcer” Humbucker Pickup (Bridge), while the Squier J5 uses a Custom Humbucker Pickup with Alnico 5 magnets (Neck) and a Custom Humbucker with Ceramic Magnet (Bridge)

Both have same Volume knobs for the Neck and Bridge Pickups.

Both also have the same 3 – position toggle.

The Bridge on the Fender J5 is a American Tele 6-Saddle Bridge for Humbucking Pickup with Chromed Brass Saddles, while the Squier J5 is a 6-Saddle Tele® Bridge with Humbucking Pickup Cutout.

The machine heads of the Fender J5 are the Fender®/Schaller® Deluxe Staggered Cast/Sealed Tuning Machines, whiles the Squier J5 are the Standard Die-Cast Tuners.

The hardware for the Fender J5 is fully chrome while the Squier J5 is a combination of Chrome/Stainless Steel.

The pickguard for the Fender J5 is Chrome while the Squier J5 is a 1-Ply Polished Stainless Steel.

Scale length is the same at 25.5” (648 mm) but the width from the nut for the Fender is 1.6875” (43 mm)and for the Squier is1.650” (42 mm). just a 1 mm difference.

The Unique features are different as well (red colour words means are the same):

Fender J5 : 

Matching Black Painted Headstock,
Bound Top,
Toggle Switch Mounted on Upper Bout,
Chromed Brass Pickguard,
Chrome Switch Tip,
3-Over/3-Under Modified Tele XII Headstock Shape,
No Jack Flat Spot on Body Perimeter,
Dot Position Inlays

 

Squier J5:

Matching Black Painted Headstock,
Bound Top and Back,
Silver Squier Decal,
Toggle Switch Mounted on Upper Bout,
Chrome Switch Tip,
No Tone Control,
Neck and Bridge Volume Controls are in Opposite Orientation,
White Pearloid Dot Position Inlays,
Narrow Dot Spacing,
Synthetic Bone Nut

 

Fender J5 comes with a Deluxe Gig Bag while the Squier J5 comes on it’s own (click here to view).

 

As you can see the vast difference but according to John5 says the Squier J5 sounds exactly the same as his Fender J5 but the main difference is the Price! I do not have the price but it is definately much cheaper to get the Squier J5 than the original Fender replica! All I have to do is change the pickups!

Provided I can convince my dad to get me the Squier J5 🙂
