Fender Unveils the Player Plus Active Meteora Bass
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.
