Fender unveils Parallel Universe Troublemaker Tele

Here Comes Trouble

Fender’s Parallel Universe series has just received another boost with the addition of the Troublemaker Tele.

This latest model to join the Fender family is designed to turn heads, featuring a bound mahogany body with maple top and a choice of two striking finishes: Ice Blue Metallic or Ice Tea Burst. An American Professional Tele neck adds a touch of class to the guitar alongside a large Strat headstock, 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard, and a lacquer finish.


Other notable features include a pair of Shawbucker 1T and 2T humbucking bridge and neck pickups, an Adjusto-Matic bridge with stop tailpiece, and a limited edition neck plate.


Fender has given players further insight into its Parallel Universe by enlisting John 5 to demo the new Troublemaker Tele – blindfolded. Check out the video below to hear how the new Fender design sounds:
