Very cool and clean Parallel Universe Whiteguard Stratocaster. Other than a tiny ding on the back, this guitar is in excellent condition. The machine heads were replaced with the Fender locking tuners, but the originals are in the original case along with the case candy and COA. Here’s how Fender describes it:
The Whiteguard Strat is definitely one of those hybrids, as it marries the biting twang of a Telecaster with the ergonomic contours of a Stratocaster.
It starts with a classic ash-bodied Strat. Known for its strong lows and chiming highs, the dense ash boasts plenty of resonance. In addition, the nitrocellulose lacquer Vintage Blonde finish reveals an eye-catching grain pattern.
The Tele touches are unmistakable, though. In addition to a Tele headstock, the Whiteguard Strat is outfitted with Custom Shop '51 Nocaster pickups, period-correct single-coil pickups with tight low end and clear, balanced midrange.
An American Professional Telecaster bridge offers vintage style and modern feel and performance, as it sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for accurate intonation.
The playability is furthered by a modern 9.5" fingerboard radius and a "Modern C"-shaped neck built for comfort and speed.
For the player in search of the unmistakable sound of the Telecaster and the smooth comfort of a Stratocaster, the Whiteguard Strat is truly the best of both worlds.
