The Troublemaker Tele Custom has a luxurious look that belies its tone, all in the familiar body shape of a Telecaster. This Volume II Parallel Universe guitar is a remarkably unique instrument, featuring a three-pickup configuration, Bigsby tailpiece, and blacked-out look that goes great with its gold hardware. Its block-inlaid ebony fingerboard features 22 Medium Jumbo frets and a 12” radius, for easy bends and a fast-playing feel, while the gold Bigsby “F” logo tailpiece and Adjusto-Matic bridge keep you in tune and deliver all of your needs for a trem arm. And thanks to the guitar’s three custom-calibrated DoubleTap pickups, it’s easy to get a big, bold rock ‘n’ roll sound. With elegant looks, bold tone, and fantastic in-hand feel, the Troublemaker Tele Custom is a true treat for any player lucky enough to get their hands on one.
