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.
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.
