Looking to stand out from the crowd with a healthy dose of 21st-century style? Fender’s Player Plus Meteora HH is a modern take on the offset guitar, boasting a high-performance twist that’s sure to meet the needs of even the most demanding guitarists. While it might be a fresh new look, the Player Plus Meteora HH boasts the classic alder body/maple neck combo that Fender has favored since the 1950s. A smooth maple fretboard sports a flat 12-inch radius and medium-jumbo frets, a pairing that Music Experience guitarists love for its versatility and easy bending. Of course, with searing high-gain tones, the Fireball pickups live up to their name. However, if you’re looking for something a bit cleaner, activate the SC-1 coil-split switch for pristine single-coil tones. A rock-solid 2-point tremolo and locking tuners round out this Meteora, adding up to a guitar that’s flashy on the outside, but all business under the hood.
Fender unveiled the Meteora in 2018, and this fresh new design has been steadily gaining ground ever since to cement itself as a modern Fender classic. Like its offset siblings, the Meteora is a supremely comfortable guitar to play sitting down, but the swooping double-cut design also offers excellent balance when playing on the stage. As much as we respect the venerated guitars of the past here at Music Experience, we love the Meteora for being a bold declaration by Fender that they’re dedicated to respecting the past…and reshaping the future.
The Player Plus Meteora HH sports a pair of Fender’s high-output Fireball pickups for a powerful sonic punch to match the Meteora’s edgy looks. Looking for a do-it-all tonal workhorse? Fireball pickups deliver searing high-gain tones with excellent individual string articulation; but with the press of a switch, you can activate the Player Plus Meteora HH's S-1 coil-split to produce pristine Fender-style single-coil cleans.
Whether it's your first or 50th Fender, the Player Plus Meteora HH is familiar in the hands. You get the standard tonewood combo of alder with maple for the neck and fingerboard, laying a solid tonal foundation with plenty of snap and smooth playability. Where the Player Plus Meteora HH truly shines is its impressive feature set. Its Modern "C" Player Plus neck profile boasts a rolled-edge fingerboard for a comfortable worn-in feel right out of the box. Locking tuners up top make for split-second string changes while keeping everything in tune, the perfect companion for this Meteora's silky-smooth 2-point synchronized tremolo. The Player Plus Meteora HH epitomizes love at first strum — make sure to clear your schedule for the next few days!
