The Fender American Ultra Stratocaster delivers a bold evolution of the iconic Strat. Its unique Modern D neck profile cradles your fretting hand, while the rolled fingerboard edges and tapered heel provide hours of playing comfort. A compound 10"-14" radius and 22 medium-jumbo frets mean effortless soloing across the neck. The Ultra Noiseless pickups unleash vintage Strat tone without the hum, and the advanced wiring options unlock endless sonic possibilities.

Ultra Noiseless Pickups: Classic Tone Minus the Buzz

The Ultra Stratocaster is equipped with a trio of Fender's Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups, engineered to capture coveted vintage Strat tone without the unwanted hum and buzz. The neck and middle pickups provide warmth and depth, while the bridge pickup adds articulate punch. An S-1 switch blends the neck pickup into positions 1 and 2 for thicker in-between tones.

Modern D Neck: A Fresh Take on a Familiar Profile

The Ultra Stratocaster's Modern D neck profile puts a contemporary spin on a traditional Fender shape. Its slim, rounded back satisfies players accustomed to a typical C or D profile, while the rolled fingerboard edges supply hours of buttery playing comfort. A silky satin urethane finish allows your fretting hand to glide smoothly up and down the neck. Combined with the contoured heel, the Modern D neck makes higher fret access effortless.

Compound Radius and Medium Jumbos: Built for Speed and Precision

A compound 10"-14" radius and 22 medium-jumbo nickel frets grant the dexterity and accuracy needed for everything from cowboy chords to frenzied soloing. The flatter 14" radius at the nut lets chords ring clearly, while the more rounded 10" radius at the bridge provides an ideal surface for string bending and vibrato. Medium-jumbo frets offer a familiar feel and height for most players.

Premium Appointments: The Details Matter

High-performance touches abound on the American Ultra Stratocaster, including a bone nut, sealed locking tuners, chrome hardware, and a two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent steel saddles. It also includes a deluxe molded hardshell case to safeguard your investment when not in use.
