Tonewoods, Fit and Finish

Fender selected mahogany for the Troublemaker Tele Deluxe body. Warm, rich and resonant, it’s coated in gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. White binding accentuates the classic Telecaster profile.

Neck Construction

The Troublemaker Tele Deluxe neck is mahogany with a comfortable modern C-profile. The back is satin finished for speed. The ebony fretboard has a 12" radius with 22 medium-jumbo frets and pearloid block inlays. 

Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Electronics

Tim Shaw designed the Troublemaker’s set of 3 Double Tap humbuckers. Normally, when a guitar is put into coil-split mode, the resulting single-coil only has half the output of a full ‘bucker. On this Tele, the Double Tap increases the output for a fuller, more balanced sound. Tapping on the Tone knob deactivates the middle pickup. 

Gold Hardware

Everything that glitters on the Parallel Universe Telecaster is gold, including the humbucker covers, the Adjusto-Matic bridge, Bigsby vibrato, 3-way switch and even the pickguard screws. The gold tuners are sealed, deluxe-cast and have pearl buttons. 

Other high-quality specifications include black “witch hat” control knobs and a bone nut. The Parallel Universe Vol. II Telecaster Deluxe Bigsby comes with a certificate of authenticity and a Surf Green Parallel Universe II deluxe hardshell case.
