Fender Alternate Reality Meteora HH

In 2018, Fender launched the Fender Meteora - a brand new model/body shape as part of there Parallel Universe Series. They were a limited edition USA-made guitar that combined an offset body somewhere between a Jazzmaster with hints of both Guild and Gretsch Thunderbirds. It had Telecaster pickups and block inlays.

It proved to be a bit of a love it or hate it guitar ***. Lots of people liked the shape, but weren't sure the pickups and block inlays worked. The other issue was that it was not cheap.

People said - make it cheaper, get rid of the block inlays and use different pickups.

Well, it seems like Fender were listening! The new Meteora HH features (you guessed it) 2 Humbuckers (which can be coil-split to single coil), dot inlays and being MIM (Made in Mexico) it's a lot cheaper too

These are really cool-looking guitars and have a mix of Fender characterics, but something a bit new and different too.

 

*** They sold out pretty quickly and will doubtless become a bit of a collector's item.

THE NEW STYLE


Motion meets balance with a touch of elegance with the Meteora HH, which sports a sleek 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 fat-sounding Player Series humbucking pickups. With its retro-modern offset body shape, the Meteora HH has guts and grace and is distinctively Fender.
