Fender Launches the Triple Pickup-Equipped Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Bigsby
It's the third in the guitar giant's line of LP-inspired Teles, and the latest addition to its Parallel Universe Volume II series.
Fender has launched the Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Bigsby – the third in its line of Les Paul-inspired Telecasters and latest addition to its Parallel Universe Volume II series.
Donning a sleek lacquer black finish, the Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Bigsby features a mahogany body, 25.5"-scale bound mahogany neck, 12”-radius ebony fingerboard with pearloid inlays, and gold hardware – including its namesake Bigsby tremolo and Adjusto-Matic bridge.
It follows the recently announced Troublemaker Tele Deluxe and similarly LP-inspired Uptown Strat in Fender's range of Parallel Universe model mashups.
The TTDB stands apart from Fender's existing Troublemaker Teles with its trio of Double Tap humbucking pickups, which have been custom-calibrated for this model.
Controls include two sets of volume and tone knobs, the former of which features push-push functionality for humbucker coil splitting, offering access to up to eight pickup sounds.
Other features include a custom neck plate, Certificate of Authenticity and a custom color hardshell case.
The Parallel Universe Volume II Troublemaker Tele Deluxe Bigsby is available now for $2,499. For more information, head over to Fender (opens in new tab).
