Welcome to Fender’s Parallel Universe. Each new guitar or bass in this series offers a curious mixture of features. You’ll find rare pickup combinations on Telecasters and Stratocasters. There’s even a new body shape and a Telecaster bass. The body finishes are different from most standard Fender guitars, too. No matter what your favorite Fender is, you’ll find something to satisfy your search for new sounds. There are four Fender Telecasters in Fender’s Parallel Universe series. The most surprising is the Strat-Tele Hybrid. It comes with three Fender Custom Shop '69 Aged Stratocaster pickups and a synchronized tremolo bridge. The cool Jazz Telecaster has a pair of American Vintage ’65 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups and an American Professional Jazzmaster tremolo and bridge.
Featuring body binding and a maple top, Fender’s Troublemaker Telecaster is gorgeous. But it’s also a rock machine that will shake the house down with two ShawBucker humbucking pickups. The most stylish in the Telecaster collection is the Telecaster Thinline Super Deluxe. This elegant Tele is fitted with a pair of TV Jones Classic pickups and a glorious silver-sparkle pickguard. For Stratocaster fans, Fender has created two new models of Fender’s most popular guitar. The Whiteguard Stratocaster combines the feel of a Stratocaster with the sound of a Telecaster. Fender designed it with a pair of Fender Custom Shop '51 Nocaster pickups for pure vintage Telecaster tone. The second is the Jaguar Stratocaster. This full-scale electric guitar combines American Vintage '65 Single-Coil Jaguar pickups with all of the knobs and switches you’ll ever need to find your sound.
Fender’s Meteora is the rocket-powered model in the Parallel Universe series. This offset guitar is a brand-new design for Fender. It comes with two Custom Shop Tele pickups and Standard Telecaster hardware to match its space-age vibe. And bass players can rejoice in Fender’s vintage-looking '51 Telecaster PJ Bass. With a mash-up of Precision and Jazz Bass electronics, this new Fender Bass will give the working bassist a lot of tonal variety. Whichever Fender Parallel Universe electric guitar or bass you choose, you can’t go wrong, except to wait too long. These are all limited-edition instruments that will be available only while supplies last.
