If you love the snap and twang of a Telecaster and love the comfortable shape of a Stratocaster than this Fender® Limited Edition Parallel Universe Whiteguard Stratocaster in Vintage Blonde is what you have dreamt about!
The lightweight Ash body is resonant even unplugged. Like all strat bodies, this guitar just seems to fit you right. Loaded with Tele electronics and hardware, many would argue this guitar wil provide the best of both worlds. The form and comfort of the Strat but the tones of a Tele.
The Fender Custom Shop 51 Nocaster pickups have that vintage twang and bite with just a bit more depth in the mids. The bridge pickup has a nice bite and twang. The neck pickup is creamy and smooth. Clarity and balance are even through all positions. These pickups respond to the onboard guitar controls extremely well. They warm up nicely with a slight roll of the tone and darken up beyond that. The volume control functions smoothly and allows you to find the right output easily.
The Modern C shape neck is a bit on the thinner side. Designed for easy playability and comfort. Add in a 9.5" radius and 22 narrow-tall frets and you have a neck that is ready to handle everything from fast licks to big bends. Bar Chords are easy in the lower positions and playing leads is a breeze thanks to the radius/fret combo.
These limited edition Parallel Universe models are popular so be sure and check this one out before it is gone. Fender is pushing the boundaries and taking many of their classic designs and mixing them with other classic designs! Jazzmaster Telecaster, Stratocaster, Jaguar, all sorts of cool new pieces were created in 2018.
