Motion meets balance with a touch of elegance with The Meteora, a sleek new limited-edition body shape that carries on our tradition of arresting aesthetic design. The sound is as propulsive as its visually stimulating lines – it wants to roar on stage, thanks to the two biting Custom Shop Tele pickups. With its brand-new offset body shape, The Meteora has guts and grace and is distinctively Fender.
Powered by a Custom Shop vintage-style Tele bridge pickup and a Custom Shop Twisted Tele neck pickup, this guitar can kick out anything you need from sparkling cleans to growling grit. The elegant 25.5″-scale maple neck sports a “Mid-’60s C”-shaped Jazzmaster profile, along with a 9.5″-radius fingerboard for enhanced playability, regal block inlays, 22 narrow-tall frets and a bone nut. An ash body, lacquer finish, custom black single-ply pickguard, American Professional Tele bridge with compensated brass saddles, chrome dome knobs and vintage “spaghetti” logo and “Limited Edition” micro-tilt neck plate complete the package with elegantly functional style.
A brave new entry with one foot in our past and eyes to our future, The Meteora is the newest way to explore your creative limits. Includes a hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.
