The fourth release from the Parallel Universe series features bound maple top on a mahogany body, rounded off with Gibson-ish dual humbucker, stop tail and 4 knob controls.

The big headstock and Cabronita pickguard completes the total mish-mash look and feel of the guitar.

Both the Ice Blue Metallic and Ice Tea Burst look really good and should please players who are into Telecasters loaded with humbuckers.

The Ltd Ed SE Mark Holcomb in Whale Blue Satin finish has some special features such as a 25.5″ scale and a hand-rubbed satin finish.

Great-looking quilted maple top that looks right at home among more expensive PRS models. Cool.

Fender Custom Shop Ltd Ed ’68 Paisley Strat Relic

Yet another cool release by Fender.

The ’68 Paisley Relic is a tried and tested favourite among collectors so expect this to sell well.

Plenty of vintage elements like 21 frets and vintage style trem, yet modern features like 9.5″ fret radius and Texas Special pickup are thrown in to complete the package.

Both pink and black look equally mouth-watering.

Multi-colour finishes on flamed maple seems the trend this past year with Ibanez, Cort and PRS joining the bandwagon. The Les Paul Tribute here is seen as a high-end model that comes with premium features such as Gibson pickups and hard case included. Expect a higher price for this.

New Colours for existing models

Cool finishes such as Turquoise, Aquamarine and Blueberry Burst are added to popular models.

The Turquoise family

Mahogany top AJ-220s

Interesting addition to the entry-level acoustic family. The spruce top version has had good reviews over the years so it’s a good idea to add the mahogany version for players seeking a “darker” or bluesy sound.

The Trans Blue finish looks cool too.

Let’s see if they reach SG with affordable prices.
