Jimmy Eat World's Jim Adkins gets signature Fender
Back in June 2008, one of MusicRadar's highlights of the Download festival was an excellent set from Jimmy Eat World - a shining melodic beacon amidst a sea of grunting vocals, downtuned mush and the death throes of preposterous rock dinosaurs.
During the set, we spotted frontman Jim Adkins rocking a couple of interesting Fenders, which we are now pretty sure were prototypes for his new signature model.
The JA-90 Thinline Telecaster is essentially a tweaked, single cutaway version of the TC-90 model that Adkins already played. Sporting a mahogany neck set into a semi-hollow ash body, the JA-90 also features Seymour Duncan soapbar pickups and cool amp-style control knobs.
Meanwhile, Adkins's signature tucked away tastefully on the rear of the headstock, which is painted to match the body. The JA-90 is available in crimson and ebony transparent finishes, with US retail at $999.99, and UK at £519.99.
Here's Jim putting the JA-90 through its paces in the Big Casino video.
