I'm sure most of you have seen the new Parallel Universe models, you know...all those weird mashed-up Strat/Jags, Tele/Strats etc... Well the only one that kinda appealed to me was this one.... But there were a few things that bothered me. I wasn't sure the rounded Strat contours matched the Tele aesthetic, and it really needed a Strat headstock. Soooo, already having a spare Strat neck and most of the guts from another Tele project, I decided to create my own parallel universe. All I needed to get was the body ( Guitarbuild), a 4-way switch, a double cut bridge ( Gotoh ) and some pickguard material. And here's the result... In all honesty, all it is is a Tele with an upper horn and a Strat headstock, but with more of that classic Tele vibe that I felt the Fender offering was lacking. I'm really liking it!
