The Fender American Ultra Series Telecaster is designed for players who want the most advanced, highest performance Tele ever made. The team spent over two years on intense R&D, analyzing and improving everything on this new flagship line. Made in America in Corona, California, the American Ultra Tele features new noiseless pickups, advanced electronics, tapered heel and body contours, a redesigned neck shape, a rosewood fretboard with rolled edges and new stage-ready finishes. It all adds up to a Telecaster you’ll treasure for decades. But don’t let these modern updates fool you. The vibe of the American Ultra Series Telecaster is still classic Fender.

Ultra Noiseless pickups

Fender first went noiseless back in 1998; the American Ultra Telecaster features the 5th generation of these pickups, with decades of refinement behind them. It’s classic Tele single-coil sounds without the hum.

Advanced electronics

An S-1 switch is nested in to the volume knob giving you the option of series or parallel wiring. A treble bleed circuit maintains the highs even when you’re dimed out.

New neck contour

A first for Fender, the American Ultra's sculpted neck heel allows for effortless access to the upper frets. It’s a significant reduction in bulk at the base of the neck, super thin but structurally sound with maximum resonance.

New neck shape

The American Ultra Tele neck has a modern-D profile. It’s flatter than a standard-D, with a faster back and a little more “meat” on the shoulders. Fender created an all-new process to apply a thin coat of satin urethane, giving the neck a completely smooth, raw wood feel. Your hands won’t stick here. The rosewood fretboard has rolled edges for added comfort.
