The Fender Parallel Universe series is back, bringing electric guitar "What Ifs?" to life! The Parallel Universe line is a series of limited edition guitars that take classic Fender designs to places you'd never normally see them. The stunning Strat Jazz Deluxe is one of the more striking models, with an eye-catching finish, unique tonewood combo and timeless tonal palette.
Body & Neck
Alder is a go-to tonewood for Fender, known for its balanced sound and scooped punchy mids. Topped off with flamed maple, however, it adopts a different character. Expect a sparkling top-end and confident attack. The Faded Seafoam Green beautifully complements the maple grain, tastefully contrasted with a golden pickguard.
The neck is a standout feature; it's all rosewood with a satin nitro finish. Luxuriously smooth in sound, feel and looks, the neck adds warmth to the balanced alder and snappy flamed maple, while giving the guitar an alluring aesthetic.
Hardware & Electronics
Aside from the Jazzmaster shape, this instrument offers classic Strat vibes. A triple-bill of Custom Shop Texas Special Single-Coil Strat pickups offer that distinct spank - but with an edge thanks to the unique tonewoods on offer. A 5-way blade with is combined with simple master volume/master tone controls for easy access to glorious sound.
Sticking with the classic Strat vibe, a 2-point American Pro Strat bridge gives you just the right amount of expression while retaining resonance and dynamics. The Strat Jazz Deluxe delivers proven tones and playability – versatile enough to cover almost any genre and familiar like an old friend.
