Fender Unveils New Tele Mágico Guitar

Fender has unveiled its new Tele Mágico guitar, the latest addition to its Parallel Universe Volume II line.
Designed with Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Ron Thorn, the Tele Mágico features a Thinline swamp ash body – finished in either Trans Daphne Blue or Trans Surf Green – and a flame maple neck with a custom profile that transitions from a “V”- shape to a “C”-shape as you make your way up the fingerboard.
Pearloid is all over the guitar as well – used for its binding, inlays, tuning pegs, custom pickup rings, and the Cabronita pickguard.
The Tele Mágico is also outfitted with two custom-designed Fender Gold Foil pickups and a three-saddle Tele bridge.
The Fender Tele Mágico guitar is available now – with a custom Surf Green Parallel Universe Harsdhell case included – for $2,299.
