The Fender Deryck Whibley Telecaster deluxe is the signature guitar of Deryck Whibley, lead singer and guitarist of the Canadian rock band Sum 41.


It has a 1972 Telecaster body with 2 humbucking pickups, one volume knob, a Fender neckplate, and a Telecaster Deluxe headstock. At first the Telecaster had only one pickup in the bridge, the Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB Humbucker. This model was first used during the tour for Sum 41's third album "Chuck". A second pickup was later on, the Antiquity JB Model Humbucker but then was replaced by a Wide Range Humbucker pickup in the neck while leaving the bridge pickup the same. His current model is with Seymour Duncan and Wide Range pickups. The input jack is custom made onto the pickguard rather than a side input jack. The body is featured without the traditional pickup selector switch. The neck's tuning machines are Fender American Standard Series Tuning Machines. The guitar also features red X's that Whibley states "Are there for good luck and design". Whibley uses a Get'm Get'm Sergeant guitar strap with chrome Schaller Strap Locks. There is only one color for the Telecaster Deluxe model (Black body with Black pickguard) but comes either black on black or Olympic White body with Black pickguard for the Squier models.

Differences between Telecaster Deluxe model and Squier model[edit]

The Squier model of Deryck Whibley's guitar was released in 2007. This model is based on Whibley's original Telecaster Deluxe with only one pickup. This model is slightly different though. This model has an additional tone knob, 1 pickup, a side input jack, a Squier neckplate, a Squier headstock with Whibley's signature at the end, and no strap locks. This model comes either black on black or olympic white on black. This model can be bought online (in either colors) unlike the Telecaster Deluxe model. The Squier can be seen in music videos for "Underclass Hero" (Black), "With Me" (Black), and "Walking Disaster" (White). The Squier can also be seen in live performances in the studio for the album "Underclass Hero" all in Olympic White.
