Adore the sound of the Stratocaster and the body of the Jazzmaster, but can’t choose between the two? Fender has answered your prayers with the launch of the Strat Jazz Deluxe, the latest model in its Parallel Universe Vol II lineup of electric guitar mash-ups.

Naturally, the guitar gets its name from appointments derived from both its inspirations. So, you get the classic offset Jazzmaster body shape, teamed with a trio of Texas Special Stratocaster pickups and two-point American Pro Strat bridge.
