Fender Limited Edition Parallel Universe Troublemaker Tele Deluxe

Playing music is rebellious and mischievous by nature - it takes moxy to stride out on stage and convince a roomful of strangers to enjoy something they've never heard before. To turn heads you need the proper tool for the job, something like the Fender Limited Edition Parallel Universe Troublemaker Tele Deluxe. A bound mahogany body with a maple top, custom Cabronita pickguard and lacquer finish? Yep, Fender is definitely stirring up some trouble with this limited-edition release.

Powered by a pair of Shawbucker 1T and 2T humbucking pickups that are specifically voiced for their positions, this guitar grunts and growls in a most-desirable way. The 25.5"-scale, "Deep C"-shaped American Professional Tele neck sports a large Stratocaster headstock, along with a 9.5"-radius rosewood fingerboard for enhanced playability, 22 narrow-tall frets and a bone nut. From the 3-way toggle switch on the upper bout to the Adjusto-Matic bridge with stop tailpiece and matching cream Jazzmaster knobs, pickup bezels and switch tip to the pearloid position markers, vintage-style Telecaster Deluxe logo and "Limited Edition" neck plate, this guitar was designed to do one thing--raise a little hell.

Don't be afraid to kick up your heels a bit when you play The Troublemaker Tele--after all, the well-behaved rarely make history. Includes a hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.

"Fender Troublemaker Tele - No Troube at All"
Overall: Only had my Troublemaker for a couple of days...loving it so far. I picked this up at the Ye Olde Music Shop in Hanahan, South Carolina. Great shop, great prices.I’ll start with the only issues I had...the action was a bit higher than I like and the Fender Website didn’t have any good information posted yet (manuals, setup, specs, etc.). That being said, the rest of the setup was spot on. Intonation was perfect. Even the neck relief was at .012.It has an amazing range for sound. I can get it bright and sharp like my Strat and also deep and beefy like you get from a LP HH. I also managed to get damn close to the twang I can get from my standard Tele.The sustain is as awesome as advertised. It plays great and the controls are set up very very well for my style of play. I like the separate volume/tone controls. Basically, this guitar has the best of both a LP style guitar for control layout and the feel and look of the Tele.Well done Fender...well done!

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
