Fender does the timewarp - again

Fender has been at the controls of its time machine once again, this time hybridising a Strat and a Tele in the latest of its exciting ‘Parallel Universe’  reimaginings of what might have happened to famous guitars from the company’s past.

Fender says: ‘This Parallel Universe model combines the biting twang of a Telecaster with the sleek, ergonomic contours of a Strat. The limited-edition Whiteguard Strat ($1,999.99) in Vintage Blonde also features an Ash Strat  body with a lacquer  finish and  custom-shaped  white pickguard’.

Third quarter releases in the Parallel Universe series are going to include a Jaguar Strat in October, the Meterora in November and a ’51 Telecaster PJ Bass.

Ash  body  with lacquer  finish

“Modern C”-shaped  maple  Tele neck;  9.5″-radius  fingerboard

22 narrow-tall frets;  bone  nut

Fender  Custom  Shop ’51  Nocaster  single-coil bridge  and  neck pickups
