Fender Unveils the Player Plus Active Meteora Bass

Fender Player Plus Active Meteora Bass Tequila Sunrise

Fender’s Player Plus Series kicked off last year with Precision and Jazz models, and the company has just unveiled a new four-string in the line that shakes things up. The Player Plus Active Meteora Bass features a radical offset body shape fitted with two humbucking pickups.

“Powered by a pair of Fireball Bass Humbucking pickups, the Player Plus Meteora Bass delivers the punch and growl that defines Fender bass tone,” they write. “A 3-band active EQ provides precise tone shaping with switchable active/passive operation for ultimate flexibility. The Player Plus Meteora Bass neck is sleek, fast, and smooth thanks to its silky satin finish, comfortable rolled edges on a 12” inch radius fingerboard, and modern ‘C’ back-shape. A rock solid HiMass bridge provides sustain, resonance, and perfect intonation.”

The Meteora Bass comes in 3-color sunburst, Silverburst, Tequila Sunrise, and Opal Spark finishes. The sunburst and Silverburst come with a maple fingerboard while the latter two have Pau ferro fingerboards.

The Fender Player Plus Active Meteora Basses are available now for $1,199.
