The Fender American Ultra Telecaster redefines what an electric guitar can achieve. Featuring Fender's most advanced innovations, this Tele is crafted for players who demand the utmost in tone, feel and versatility. The unique Modern D neck profile with rolled fingerboard edges provides endless hours of playing comfort, while the tapered neck heel allows effortless access across all 22 medium-jumbo frets.

Ultra Quiet Pickups Provide a Wealth of Tonal Options

The American Ultra Telecaster is equipped with Fender's Ultra Noiseless Vintage Tele single-coil pickups, which deliver the punchy twang that Tele guitars are known for without the hum. An S-1 switch activates both pickups in series for a beefy humbucker tone, allowing this guitar to handle any genre.

Compound Radius Fingerboard and Jumbo Frets Enable Flawless Playability

The American Ultra Telecaster features a fast-playing 10"–14" compound radius fingerboard, providing a comfortable feel for chords and effortless soloing. 22 medium-jumbo frets make bending and vibrato a breeze while retaining excellent intonation across all six strings.

Premium Components Provide Rock-Solid Performance

From the bone nut and chrome hardware to the sealed locking tuners, the American Ultra Telecaster is equipped with premium components to ensure consistent performance in any environment. The six-saddle bridge provides precise intonation for crystal-clear chords and single-note lines.

A Striking Instrument With Timeless Style

With an alder body and a variety of cool finishes, the American Ultra Telecaster exhibits a striking figure with enduring visual appeal. The iconic single-cutaway shape is complemented by a sleek satin neck finish, knurled flat top control knobs and Fender's embossed headstock logo.
