Fender Parallel Universe II Troublemaker Tele Custom with Bigsby, Ebony Fingerboard, Black
Fender Parallel Universe II Troublemaker Tele Custom 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.
All dressed up and ready to brawl – the Troublemaker Tele® Custom Bigsby is elegant in black. Dressed in a classic lacquer finish, a stately ebony fingerboard and elevated by pearloid block inlays and white binding throughout, this guitar presents a dashing figure, ready to do some damage.
But don’t let the debonair “tuxedo” look fool you, the Troublemaker Tele Custom is a brute looking for a good time. The 12” radius neck and 22 medium-jumbo frets promise smooth action even with the most aggressive playing. The solid mahogany body gives it a warm mid-range growl and its three custom-calibrated Double Tap™ humbucking pickups can be smooth and suave or raucous and rebellious, as the job requires.
It’s been said that the well-behaved rarely make history. With a tie around its neck and a slingshot in its pocket, the Troublemaker Tele Custom Bigsby is ready to make some beautiful noise.
