The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Meteora Guitar in Butterscotch Blonde presents a unique body shape to the Fender stable. With sleek lines that give it a streamlined look, the Meteora is a great guitar for players who want a guitar that lets them rock out in style.
The Meteora breaks the Fender mould with an offset body shape that is bold yet graceful. The lightweight feel is backed up by a sweeping lower bout that tucks away to afford a comfortable resting position for the picking arm, whilst the cutaways at the neck makes it easy to reach the upper frets.
Built using ash, the Meteora boasts a confident midrange warmth that is flanked by a subtle low-end and softened highs. The butterscotch blonde finish is protected by a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which allows the paintwork to age gracefully. Paired with and enhancing the finish is a curved single-ply black pickguard.
Supportive maple neck
Paired with the body is a sleek maple neck shaped to the American Jazzmaster '65 mid-'60s "C" profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The satin-lacquered finish along the back minimises stickiness or tackiness to ensure your hand can run along freely. Married to the neck is a bright-sounding maple fingerboard that ensures each note rings out with clarity. The 9.5-inch radius creates a flatter surface, which combines beautifully with the 22 narrow tall frets to promote seamless string bends along its entire length. The regal block position inlays aid in your navigation along the neck.
Cool Fender Twang
The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Meteora is equipped with a Custom Shop vintage-style Tele' single coil in the bridge position, and a Custom Shop "twisted" single-coil Tele' pickup in the neck. The pickup partnership gives you access to a wide ranging tonal palette that runs from sparkling cleans to snarling bite. Whatever style of music you like to tackle, the Meteora relishes the opportunity to take on all-comers.
The knurled dome master volume and tone controls enhance the aesthetic, whilst providing smooth tone sculpting abilities.
The body is home to the 3-saddle strings-through-body Tele' bridge with compensated brass saddles, which create a seamless connection between strings and body for optimised intonation and sustain. The 6-screw mounting with removable modern "Ashtray" bridge cover elevates the vintage vibe. The headstock is home to deluxe staggered cast/sealed tuning machines with
