New Fender Parallel Universe Guitars

New from NAMM 18 the Fender Parallel Universe guitars are really unique.  Fender has spliced together different models to create hard to even imagine really neat hybrids. How is that for innovation?

The Strat-Tele Hybrid (launching April 2018) features the traditional Tele® body with professional touches like three Custom Shop '69 Aged Strat® pickups, a Strat synchronized tremolo bridge and comfort contours.

The Jazz Tele (launching June 2018) has a vintage-inspired sound, modern feel and sensational aesthetics powered by a pair of American Vintage '65 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups-marrying the best of the Jazzmaster and Telecaster guitars.

The Elite Nashville Telecaster HSS (launching May 2018) is a supercharged American Elite Telecaster. It features a direct mounted ShawBucker™ humbucking bridge pickup, along with pair of Pure Vintage '64 Tele pickups in the middle position and neck positions-the beloved configuration of many Nashville players.

 

The Jazz Tele (launching June 2018) has a vintage-inspired sound, modern feel and sensational aesthetics powered by a pair of American Vintage '65 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups-marrying the best of the Jazzmaster and Telecaster guitars.

The Meteora (launching November 2018) features a sleek new limited-edition offset body shape. With both Jazzmaster and Telecaster guitar features, the Meteora is distinctly Fender.

The Troublemaker Tele (launching July 2018) features a bound mahogany body with a maple top, custom Cabronita pickguard and lacquer finish-all powered by a pair of ShawBucker 1T and 2T humbucking pickups.

The Whiteguard Strat (launching September 2018) combines the biting twang of a Telecaster® with the sleek, ergonomic contours of a Strat.

The Tele Thinline Super Deluxe (launching August 2018) pairs rich-sounding TV Jones Classic pickups and familiar controls with a twist to Fender's semi-hollow Tele design.

The Jaguar Strat (launching October 2018) takes visual cues from the Jaguar; its agile switching system is melded with Strat electronics to create a uniquely powerful hybrid system.

The '51 Telecaster PJ Bass (launching December 2018) combines elements from the Precision and Jazz Bass models with a 34"-scale Telecaster bass maple neck with an American Vintage "'63 P Bass"-shaped profile.
