The Fender Parallel Universe Vol. II Troublemaker Tele Deluxe is here at Guitar Center. It’s a genre-mixing instrument with humbucker tones that can be split for single-coil sounds. Featuring a mahogany body and neck, a snappy maple fretboard, dual volume and tone controls and a stopbar tailpiece, this is a fully-customized Fender for players who want one guitar to do it all. 

Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Main Features

  • Mahogany body 
  • Mahogany neck with modern C-shape, maple fretboard 
  • Dual Double Tap humbuckers with coil-spit for a single-coil sound
  • Stopbar tailpiece, Adjusto-Matic bridge, sealed tuners 

Upgraded Tonewoods, Fit and Finish

Fender picked mahogany for this Tele body. With a warm and even mid-range, it complements the sonic slate of the humbuckers. Just like vintage Fenders, the Troublemaker Tele Deluxe is finished in nitrocellulose lacquer, which allows the wood to breathe.

Troublemaker Tele Neck Construction

This Troublemaker’s neck is mahogany, and it’s no baseball bat: the profile is a modern-C. The maple fretboard has a standard 25.5" scale length and 22 medium-jumbo frets with black block inlays.

Custom Electronics

The Troublemaker Tele Deluxe is capable of both humbucker and single-coil tones, courtesy of Tim Shaw’s pickups. This Double Tap features is activated with the Push-Push volume controls, which splits the bridge and neck pickups respectively. Instead of a standard blade switch, it uses a 3-way toggle on the upper bout. Dual volume and tone controls have black “witch hat” knobs.

Hardware That’s Rare for a Fender

A stopbar tailpiece anchors the strings firmly into the Troublemaker’s body before it passes over the Adjusto-Matic bridge. All hardware, including the vintage-style tuners, are in gold. 

The Fender Parallel Universe Vol. II Troublemaker Tele Deluxe includes a certificate of authenticity and a Surf Green deluxe hardshell case.
