Fender Parallel Universe II Troublemaker Tele Custom, Ebony Fingerboard, Olympic White
Fender Parallel Universe II Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Overview.
After the great success of the Parallel Universe Series, Fender have Returned with the classy but quirky Parallel Universe II for 2020. Pushing the boundaries once again we have some amazing new models such as the Fender Parallel Universe II Troublemaker Tele Custom available in Olympic White with 2 Pickups or in Black with 3 Pickups and a Bigsby, the Fender Parallel Universe II Tele Magico in Transparent Daphne Blue or Transparent Surf Green designed by renowned masterbuilder Ron Thorn and the '60s inspired Fender Parallel Universe II Maverick Dorado to name a few. We think these look great and will certainly stand out from the crowd.
It takes a big personality to show up in a white tux – and the Troublemaker Tele® has the swagger to pull it off. The bold Olympic White lacquer finish and swanky gold hardware belies this guitar’s true purpose – to cause an uproar and make a racket.
But it’s not all style-over-substance – this Tele has class. The body is a solid chunk of mahogany, known for its mid-range growl and sustain. The 12” radius neck and 22 medium-jumbo frets promise smooth action even with the most aggressive playing and its custom Double Tap™ humbucking pickups give the Troublemaker its rowdy-yet-refined voice.
It’s been said that the well-behaved rarely make history. With a martini in one hand and brass knuckles in the other, the Troublemaker Tele Custom is ready to make some beautiful noise.
