Fender has unveiled its new Maverick Dorado guitar.

The second model in the company's Parallel Universe II series, following the Jazz Strat, the Maverick Dorado is a reboot of sorts of Fender's legendary, appropriately-named Maverick model, which was built from leftover 12-string necks, bodies and pickups.

The Maverick Dorado features an alder body and a ‘60s “C”-shaped neck with an ebony fingerboard, 24.75” scale length and 22 medium jumbo frets with white pearl block inlays. 

Sonically, it packs Tim Shaw-designed, Filter’Tron-style humbucking pickups controlled by master volume and tone knobs and a three-position toggle switch. It also features an Adjusto-Matic bridge with a Bigsby vibrato.

The Fender Maverick Dorado is available now - in Ultrabust, Mystic Pine Green and Firemist Gold finishes - for $2,499.99. It comes with a deluxe hardshell case.
