    Fender's latest Parallel Universe model blends the twang of a Telecaster with the sleek contours of a Strat...

    Eh... I'm not sure if I like it... What say you?

    I'd like it if it was actually WHITE.

    Just a variation of the Squier 51.

    Exactly, if you want the best of both Tele and Strats you're right

    I'm fine with it, though I'd rather the strat headstock. My tele always feel like it's going to fall out of the hanger-stand I have it in. Other than that. Meh. My GAS is in remission so it takes a lot to get me excite for a new guitar. (like the new 2019 es-335s lol,)

    Love it, I have a 51 but I bet that one is much much nicer. I will wait for the used market and then probably not buy one :D

  14. If I want a contour body Telecaster, I'd simply just get one.

  16. I've never felt the need to get a contour body Telecaster. I like the slab body. Some folks prefer a contour.
    Cheers, Barrie.

    Those of you looking for a future collectable Fender, here it is. The key to it's collectability being that there won't be that many sold, and it will be at least rare in ten years. Now, valuable, is another proposition all together.

    Other companies have been making “Strateles” for years, why shouldn’t Fender get to have some of the action, too? I’ve been toying with the idea of a hardtail Strat with Tele pups (and 4-way switch) so why not?

  19. I think it's "white guard" not the body.
