One of the anticipated releases being announced tomorrow is Fender’s Parallel Universe series. Basically, the series contains several guitars that combine features together to create something interesting. One of the more interesting to me is the Troublemaker Telecaster.
From the leaked picture, the Troublemaker Telecaster is basically a Les Paul in Tele form. It purportedly will have a mahogany body, maple top, two wide-range humbuckers, 22 frets, a mahogany neck and rosewood fretboard, and classic LP controls (2 volume, 2 tone, and 3-way toggle). The rumors are that it will have the traditional 25.5″ Fender scale. It’ll be interesting to see what actually gets announced tomorrow.

Just got the guitar in iced tea burst July 6th. Only got to play it for a few hours and had to go away for the weekend. Plays, sounds and looks awesome! BTW, it has a roasted Maple neck with rosewood fretboard. The neck is very smooth and fast. The guitar is very resonant.
Thanks for letting us know about your guitar, Todd! These look fantastic. I’m glad to hear you’re digging it.
