The Corona crew's latest mashup pairs rich-sounding TV Jones Classic pickups with a twist to their semi-hollow Tele design.
Hollywood, CA (August 9, 2018) -- Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) debuted its 2018 electric guitar and bass offerings at Winter NAMM in Anaheim, California.
“From the American Original Series and Parallel Universe Collection to the Eric Johnson Signature Stratocaster Thinline artist signature series model – there’s a solid offering for avid guitar players in 2018,” said Justin Norvell, SVP Fender Products. “American Original Series speaks to that player who loves vintage-inspired design and tone. On the other end of the spectrum is Parallel Universe, which celebrates the modular nature of Fender guitars, splicing together DNA from various Fender models to create off-the-wall hybrids. On the artist side, we’re excited to have worked with Eric Johnson–one of the most talented guitar players on the planet–to create the first semi-hollow Stratocaster. He’s known for having the most detailed, critical standards for his instruments–and the quality and care is apparent in his second artist signature series model with us.”
One of the biggest splashes had to be the introduction of the Parallel Universe Collection that started rolling out in April 2018. The line features hybrid pairings of Fender’s notable guitar and bass models; they celebrate the brand’s continued innovation and the tremendous modular capabilities of Fender instruments.
Their newest addition to the Collection is the Tele Thinline Super Deluxe. Step out on stage in style with the elegantly double-bound Tele Thinline Super Deluxe. Limited-edition Western flair meets classic sound in this instrument that manages to be raw and refined at the same time. How? We added a pair of rich-sounding TV Jones® Classic pickups and familiar controls with a twist to our now-classic semi-hollow Tele design and topped it with a stunning finish and silver sparkle pickguard, making old-school cool look new all over again.
- Semi-hollow alder Tele Thinline body with double white binding; lacquer finish; ‘70s Tele Thinline silver sparkle pickguard.
- American Professional “Deep C”-shaped neck; 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard

Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters are designed to offer a fat midrange and a smooth top end.
Billy Corgan was looking for something for heavier Smashing Pumpkins songs, so Joe Naylor designed the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One pickup. Sporting custom artwork etched onto the covers, the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One Humcutters have a fat midrange and a smooth top end. This pickup combines the drive and sustain of a humbucker with the percussive attack and string clarity of a P90. Get beefy P90 tone plus amp-pummeling output with the Railhammer Billy Corgan Z-One.
Patented Railhammer Pickups take passive guitar pickups to a new level with rails under the wound strings lead to tighter lows, and poles under the plain strings offer fatter heights. With increased clarity, the passive pickup’s tone is never sterile.

Mojotone will manufacture and market over 60 of their speaker cabinets and amp kits as “Licensed by Fender.”
This partnership marks Fender's recognition of Mojotone’s dedication to its craft, quality of products, and dependability of knowledge. Beginning November 29th and ranging from $327 - $1,016.
Amplifiers were among the first products to wear the official Fender seal. A qualified electronics technician by trade, Leo Fender developed his iconic amplifiers during the mid-1940s putting innovation at the forefront. To this day, Leo’s influence and innovative spirit can still be heard in today’s amps, as that same iconic, clean Fender tone continues to color new music around the world. As a result, the process for completing the exclusive licensing deal required Fender to carefully audit Mojotone’s amplifier kits, wiring diagrams, electronics, hardware, construction methods, and more to ensure this innovation carried on through the partnership. Mojotone’s many years of intense research, quality production, and favorable reputation solidified the deal.
Mojotone has always been determined to provide its customer base with the most sought-after parts with their insider industry-knowledge. They have spent the last 25 years helping musicians recreate what they deem to be the most famous and easily-recognized tones and aesthetics in the music industry.
