Fender | J Mascis Telecaster

A Bottle Rocket Blue Flake Telecaster for Dinosaur Jr.'s Senior Songwriter

We're lighting the fuse on a shimmering new signature model, the Fender J Mascis Telecaster, outfitted in an eyecatching Bottle Rocket Blue Flake finish. 

While his towering stacks of high-wattage amplifiers and earthquaking cabinets are difficult to duplicate, this J Mascis Telecaster is a faithful recreation of the fuzz master's favorite Fender from 1958, equipped with a top-loading bridge, mirrored chrome pickguard, custom J Mascis Telecaster pickups, and Road Worn detailing for a played-in look and feel.

An icon of alternative rock, J Mascis' penchant for running Fender guitars into stacks of amps to create massive fuzzy riffs, incendiary leads and huge hooks have made his work in Dinosaur Jr. and on solo records an indispensable part of rock history, influencing countless artists to follow.

The J Mascis Telecaster recreates J's favorite guitar, an original 1958 top-loader Tele, with which he recorded most of his lead work throughout his career. Features include a Dazzling Blue Sparkle finish, mirrored chrome pickguard, custom J Mascis Telecaster pickups, top-loader bridge and Road Worn maple neck and hardware.

From Wren & Cuff:


A bonafide guitar legend by any standard, his band Dinosaur Jr. toured with and influenced many of the bands that defined the 90’s -- bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Mudhoney, and too many others to count. Ask nearly any punk or grunge band from that era (and of today) if they’ve heard of J Mascis, and you’ll get a look like you’re a fool for even having to ask.

His association with the Big Muff is well documented as one of the main building blocks of the Dinosaur Jr. sound. So, it is understandable that the Muff experts at Wren and Cuff would be the ones calling when the idea for a signature pedal came about. After more than 2 years in the making, that pedal is finally here.

A part-by-part recreation of J’s number one Muff since 1987, this is not just any 70’s EHX Ram’s Head. J’s pedal is an odd bird with parts values that are “incorrect” and component values that have drifted far from their original values during its near-50 year journey. 

On the other side of the pedal is a replication of J’s favorite germanium treble booster that he uses to slam the input of said muffer. And nestled in between the two is a wonderfully simple but incredibly useful tool... a second volume knob with a footswitch to let you bounce between two Muff volume outputs!

We know you’ll love this collaboration with one of the best masters of fuzz that has ever lived.

  • Faithful recreation of J Mascis’ favorite muffer 
  • Vintage germanium transistor treble boost
  • Selectable output volumes
  • All true-bypass operation
  • Lifetime warranty
