After turning heads with their bizarre Jazz Strat hybrid earlier in April, Fender have debuted the latest addition to their wildly imaginative Parallel Universe range with the Maverick Dorado.
Based on the long-lost Custom Maverick produced between 1969 and 1972, the Maverick Dorado features an alder body with a nitrocellulose finish for a classic Fender look, as well as a 12-string style maple neck with an ebony fretboard and a ludicrously big headstock.
The guitar boasts a thick '60s C-shaped profile and 22 medium jumbo frets, as well as a 24.75" scale, giving it a similar feel to a Gibson-style guitar. A Bigbsy tremolo is also included with these new models, while a Fender Adjusto-Matic bridge helps provide further tuning stability.
Elsewhere, the Maverick Dorado is loaded with a set of Tim Shaw-designed Filter'Tron humbuckers, which are controlled by a master volume and tone control with a three way toggle switch. It's also available in three sweet finishes: Three-Colour Sunburst, Firemist Gold and the awesome Mystic Pine Green.
