The Fender American Ultra Stratocaster is the latest evolution of the iconic Strat design. Loaded with innovative features catering to discerning players searching for ultimate precision, tone and comfort, this state of the art Stratocaster is a bold step forward. Sporting an alder body, maple "Modern D" neck and maple fingerboard, the American Ultra Stratocaster delivers a familiar feel with modern enhancements like a rolled compound radius fingerboard and a contoured neck heel for effortless access across the 22 medium jumbo frets. Powered by three Ultra Noiseless Vintage Strat single coil pickups, advanced wiring unlocks a myriad of hum free tones.

Ultra Noiseless Vintage Pickups Provide Pristine Strat Sound

The American Ultra Stratocaster is loaded with three Ultra Noiseless Vintage Strat single coil pickups designed to capture the articulate voice of a vintage Strat without the hum. From bell like neck pickup tones to punchy bridge pickup tones perfect for solos, this pickup set delivers a dynamic range of tones with impeccable clarity and definition. An S-1TM switch allows you to blend the neck pickup into any other switch position when engaged.

Compound Radius and Rolled Fingerboard Edges

A fast-playing 10"-14" compound radius fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets means lightning quick runs and bends are easily executed. Rolled fingerboard edges provide hours of playing comfort for chord work or solos. The Ultra Satin neck finish allows your hand to glide without resistance up and down the neck.

High-Performance Hardware for Rock-Solid Stability

The American Ultra Stratocaster features a two point synchronized tremolo bridge for classic Strat tone and feel. Sealed locking tuning machines help keep you in tune through heavy tremolo use and string bending. Additional high performance hardware like the bone nut and chrome hardware complete the premium build.

Premium Gig Bag Included

The American Ultra Stratocaster includes a premium molded case for transport to and from rehearsals, recording sessions and shows. The comfort handle make carrying a breeze, while the durable outer shell protects your instrument from the elements.
