Fender unveils Parallel Universe 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:
