Here we have a new Fender Parallel Universe Limited Edition Whiteguard Stratocaster in Vintage Blonde featuring an ash body with a modern "C" maple neck, maple fretboard and a Custom Shop '51 Nocaster bridge pickup with a Custom Shop '51 single-coil Nocaster neck pickup.
For every guitarist who’s dreamt of combining the biting twang of a Telecaster® with the sleek, ergonomic contours of a Strat, we created this limited-edition guitar: The Whiteguard Strat. Tele hardware, electronics and playing feel? Check. Ash Strat body with lacquer finish and custom-shaped white pickguard? Check. The unique style and sound you can only get from Fender? You better believe that’s a check.
The secret to this Strat’s biting tone is the pair of Fender Custom Shop ’51 Nocaster pickups. True to the original design, these pickups have the classic sound that made the world fall in love with Fender. The “Modern C”-shaped maple Telecaster neck sports a 9.5”-radius fingerboard for enhanced playability, along with 22 narrow-tall frets and a bone nut. Other stylish touches include a silver Fender logo on the headstock and a “Limited Edition” neck plate.
A twisted take on a classic model, The Whiteguard Strat is a visually stimulating music machine that sounds as killer as it looks. Includes a hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
