I feel like if the Meteora was some mad Russian guitar from the 70s we'd all be drooling over it. Not saying I'm a huge fan necessarily, but come on. It's not bad, and it's nice to see Fender experimenting with new offset body shapes.

I think it's the very non-traditional body shape in combination with the start Tele setup that makes it so jarring for me, esp in that classic Tele butterscotch-black colour scheme.

Lace has had this design for ages:



It's literally like some strat-jack phobic shortscaler got their hands on one and covered up the hole with more black shit around the pickups.

Holy shit want. Itís hideous and itíll be despised by every strat-wielding dork around where I live and that makes me love it even more. God I love when Fender does off-the-Wall shit like this.

Fender are literally just designing guitars in Photoshop now, and then building them, aren't they?

Oh shit I love this. Wouldn't play it as I only really like hardtails these days, and I prefer to have as few switches as possible, but it looks incredible!

you know what all these guitars are missing? and its fucking lazy too.

names on the head stock.


why give that fucking meteor guitar a fucking name if 20 years down the line you see a used one on the wall and you are like WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT DAD? and dad's like I DON'T FUCKING KNOW FENDER DIDN'T NAME THE POS

IF THEY CAN FIGURE THIS OUT BACK IN 1966 WHEN THEY MADE THIS GUITAR FOR A TOTAL OF LIKE 10 OR 11 DAYS YOU THINK THEY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING NOW.
