Fender Parallel Universe Series

Discover a new dimension of tone!

Explore a universe outside of our own without leaving your house. The Parallel Universe Series ponders what Fender guitars would look like in a separate timeline. Maybe the Tele could've launched with Strat-like electronics. Perhaps all the electronics of a Jazzmaster could be jammed into the body of a Telecaster. These different combinations examine the limitations of each model and expands them with cool twists and hybrids of classic models. Whichever model you choose, it's sure to be far out.

Grab one of these limited-edition guitars before they go back to their own universe. Pick up a Fender Parallel Universe model today and pay over 12 monthly installments!
