Another entry in Fender’s new Parallel Universe line for 2020 is the Parallel Universe II Uptown Strat:
Dapper and bold – the Uptown Strat® commands attention when it enters a room. Static White lacquer highlights and accentuates the slab mahogany body, a bound and block inlaid rosewood fingerboard radiates class and a pair of chrome DoubleTap™ humbucking pickups draw the eye. Featuring a 24.75” mahogany neck with 22 medium-jumbo frets and a 9.5” radius, 2-point Synchronized Tremolo System, and individual volume and tone controls for each pickup, the Uptown Strat is as versatile as it is unique.
I like the idea of this guitar, but that switch placement looks a little off to me, at least in pictures. That being said, it’s nice to see Fender provide a short-scale mahogany-bodied option in their line.
