Summary: From Fenders website-
“When Fender announced the Parallel Universe Collection in early 2018, the goal was to dive into the company's rich history and splice the DNA of classic platforms to create otherworldly hybrids.
With the American Elite Telecaster HSS, that's just what happened.
This limited-edition model started with the American Elite Telecaster as a base, so it boasted the Elite appointments like a compound-radius fingerboard, a compound "C"-to-"D" shaped neck, contoured neck heel and unique truss rod adjustment wheel. From there, it gets supercharged with an interesting HSS pickup configuration.”
This particular Tele is in excellent used condition with no issues to mention, has just been setup and restrung by our tech and ships in its original hard-shell case.
Body: Translucent aged Cherry Burst nitrocellulose lacquer finish over solid Telecaster body with contoured heel and body.
Neck: Maple neck with maple fingerboard, compound neck carve (C to D) and compound radius fretboard. This instrument has an end of heel truss rod adjustment wheel, black pearl dots, 25.5” scale length and 1 11/16” nut width.
Pickups/Hardware: HSS pickup configuration; Fender Tele neck pickup, Telecaster bridge pickup mounted in the middle position at the same angle it would be in the bridge position. In addition, a Fender ShawBucker humbucking pickup is mounted directly to the body in the bridge position. It has a five-way switch that gives you all the pickup configurations of a Strat, but also the S1 switch that allows you to add the neck pickup in positions where it's normally not on. So you can engage the standard Tele bridge and neck pickups at the same time, or all three at once. It has nickel hardware 6 saddle through-body bridge and Fender locking tuners.
Cosmetics: This Tele is in immaculate used condition. It is clear that this guitar was never really played and remains in like new condition. There are just some light pick scratches on the pickguard.
Playability: Our in house luthier has just inspected, set up and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10s and it is playing beautifully with low action and a straight neck. The frets are in great shape with no grooves or divots.
