Earlier this year, the iconic Fender brand welcomed a new guitar model to the family, the Player Plus Meteora HH. The idea for the Meteora was first developed in 2011 by designer Josh Hurst, and then debuted in 2018 as a limited edition in Fender's Parallel Universe series. The original fused together features of Fender's classic Jazzmaster and Telecaster guitars, but this new model is much different. Its offset body shape is clearly a descendent of the Jazzmaster, but it's got an even more futuristic look, and it's got two Fireball humbuckers (which Guitar World calls "quite close cousins" to the Shawbucker pickups) and a whammy bar. It's got the commonly used "Modern C" neck, and it's said to have a familiar Fender feel, even it looks a little out-there on first glance. It comes in four different colors, including Silverburst with a maple fretboard, and to celebrate its release, we've teamed up with Fender to give away one of the Silverbursts! Enter for a chance to win below.
For an even better idea of how the guitar looks and sounds, Japanese Breakfast played one for a Fender Player Plus Session. She and her band ran through "Savage Good Boy," "In Hell," and "Posing for Cars," and she also talked about how she got started playing, and more. Check it out:
