Electra Guitars is celebrating our eagerly anticipated come back with the announcement of the new Electra Omega.


Tampa, FL (April 19, 2013) -- Electra Guitars is celebrating our eagerly anticipated come back with the announcement of the new Electra Omega. This Electra Guitar embodies the single-cutaway, solid body design, geared for the modern player.

While the Electra Omega was designed to be aesthetically attractive, including the iconic Electra Guitar "Wave" headstock, its all mahogany body features player-friendly ergonomics such as a sculpted heel, for easier fretboard access and a belly cut for additional comfort.

The vintage C-shaped neck sports an all ebony fret board with Jumbo nickel/silver frets, genuine Mother of Pearl Block inlays, and a GraphTech Tusq nut.

We've partnered with an industry leader for the hardware including Tonepros/Kluson Deluxe Tuning Machines, TonePros locking Tune-o-matic Bridges and also their locking Stop Tailpiece.

For the ultimate in tonal selection, the Electra Omega will include our new Electra Magnaflux Humbucker Pickups (custom wound Alnico V's with coil tap!).

Initial models will ship in Gloss Black, Gloss White and left-handed models are also available.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
