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.
