Product Description

Plug this great axe in and discover your rebellious side! The tone of the Parallel Universe Troublemaker Tele sits somewhere in between your ‘standard’ Tele and what you’d expect from a dual-humbucker guitar. Fender’s longer 25.5-inch scale length give the guitar a decidedly snappier, dynamic and punchy tone while the ShawBucker 1T and 2T humbuckers lend themselves to great cleans and biting distortion. A bound mahogany body with a maple top, custom Cabronita pickguard and lacquer finish add just the right visual touch to this distinct guitar!

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 inch-scale, Deep C-shaped American Professional Tele neck sports a large Stratocaster headstock, along with a 9.5 inch-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.

UNIQUELY VOICED GUITAR
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
THIS HYBRID FNDER WASA LIMITED PRODUCTION RUN AND THEREFORE MAY HAVE TO BE PICKED UP USED NOW. IF YOU CAN FIND ONE ,BUY IT. THE PICKUPS AND WOOD GIVE A COMPLETELY UNIQUE TONE, AND I AM NOT EASILY IMPRESSED. THE TONE CUTS THROUGH AND IS NEITHER TYPICAL HUMBUCKER OR FENDER SHRILL.

Really Interesting Take on a Tele/LP Hybrid
What is your opinion of this product?
The first one I received was blemished by having a blue paint smear on the binding on the top of the body, but AMS was great about sending me a replacement quickly and without hassle. The replacement also has a blemish on the binding, where some of the binding was smeared onto the top of the guitar. This blemish is much smaller than the one on the first one I received and this guitar was the last one AMS had in stock, so I decided to keep it. Seems that Fender's quality control for their American line is slipping a bit. The guitar sounds and plays great, although the ergonomics are a little strange at first. The Shawbucker's are decently hot, but still with a vintage voice to them. The color scheme of the Ice Blue with the cream plastics and binding and rosewood board with mahogany headstock looks killer, and I love the feel of the satin neck. It's definitely a bit heavier than your standard tele, which feels natural as a primarily LP player. Thanks again to AMS for great service!

Amazing feel, sound and look. By far the best guitar in the Parallel Universe lineup
What is your opinion of this product?
I think this guitar is amazing. I know that it is basically an American Pro Deluxe tele with some Les Paul add ons, but for me, the feel and look of the mahogany neck and body are what set it apart and make it worth the "upgrade". Its a stunning guitar, absolutely gorgeous. The one I received was close to being setup perfectly (nut, intonation, action etc) out of the box. I gave the neck and action a very small adjustment to my preference and liking and i fell in love with it the first time I plugged it in. I run it through a RI 65 princeton reverb, and have gigged and recorded with it. The Shawbucker pickups sound very good imo. They have a humbucker sound with a very nice rounded low end but still maintain the brightness and attack of the traditional tele pickups in my opinion. I think it sounds amazing when you drive your amp or run it through pedals as well. I think it is a very well rounded and versatile telecaster and it is a beautiful guitar. Worth every penny!
