THE NEW STYLE

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.
