Jazzmaster meets Telecaster in Fender's bonkers Jazz-Tele hybrid

Meet the latest Parallel Universe guitar creation

Remember the Strat-Tele Hybrid, Fender’s first Parallel Universe model? Well, The Big F has now outdone itself with the release of the rather more unusual Jazz-Tele.

Flipping the Offset Telecaster concept on its head, the Jazz-Tele pairs American Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster single coil pickups and a floating vibrato with a Tele Deluxe visual vibe.

The guitar’s ash body is topped with a nitrocellulose lacquer in 2-Color Sunburst and Surf Green finishes, and paired with a mid-’60s C-shaped maple neck with 9.5”-radius rosewood fretboard.

Jazzmaster fans will be pleased to note the appearance of an American Professional bridge, which features Mustang saddles to avoid any string-popping incidents, plus the ‘floral’ Fender logo on the headstock.

The 2018 Limited Edition Jazz-Tele is available now for $1,999/£1,609, including hardshell case. Head over to Fender for more.
