After being revealed unto the world back at NAMM in January, the first model from Fender's new Parallel Universe series has finally arrived. Everyone, meet the Jazz Strat.
With a solid alder Stratocaster body and two Vintage '65 single-coil Jazzmaster pickups, the Jazz Strat is certainly a bit quirky to behold at first. However, it's certainly got a pretty cool boutique vibe about it, particularly with the slick Surf Green finish and matching headstock. Plus, check out how cool that custom Decoboom ivory pickguard is - those Green Flake pinstripes are so sweet.
Elsewhere, the Jazz Strat features a medium C-shaped maple neck with a 9.5" radius and rosewood fretboard, plus ClassicGear tuners and Fender's American Professional Jazzmaster bridge, which is tweaked to allow for ultra-stable performance.
The Jazz Strat makes the first of Fender's planned eight model run of Parallel Universe models for this year. If you need to jog your memory, you can check out the other models set for release here.
