The Parallel Universe series from Fender was short lived like so many special runs, but many of the guitars in the line were incredibly innovative.
Take for example this Jaguar Strat- a triage of AV 65 Jag Pickups situated in a Stratocaster body, Johnny Marr style 5-way pickup selector, Jazzmaster Rhythm and Lead circuits, Jazzmaster floating tremolo, and a Mustang bridge. This guitar possesses so many iconic Fender features under one roof, you could argue to say it's the "Fender-iest" guitar they've ever come to offer. The 25.5" scale has a slinky feel with 10s, and the Jaguar pickups offer precision note definition perfect for 80s jangle guitar like the Smiths, REM, and Felt or the disemboweled, feedback ridden tones of bands like Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr.
There aren't many of these guitars out there, and to own one makes you part of a surprisingly small club! We rate this guitar as excellent- no notable wear on the finish or frets, and includes everything like new.
Molded case included with all the factory accessories.
