Unlock Your Creativity With a Versatile HSS Pickup Layout

The American Ultra Strat HSS provides a diverse tonal spectrum perfect for tackling any musical genre. It starts with the snarling Ultra Double Tap humbucking bridge pickup, which dishes out warm, throaty leads and aggressive distorted tones. But you still get the jangly chime of traditional single coils from the Ultra Noiseless pickups in the neck and middle positions. An S-1 switch even lets you add in the neck pickup to nail classic Strat quack. The advanced electronics extend even further, with a treble bleed circuit that keeps your highs crisp when rolling back the volume. From country twang to searing rock solos, this HSS Strat serves up the tones you need.

Experience Comfortable Playability With the Modern D Neck Profile

The American Ultra Strat HSS feels like an extension of your hands. Its Modern D neck profile has an asymmetrical shape that fills your palm without feeling bulky or clubby. Combined with the smoothly rolled fingerboard edges, you'll be able to blaze away at speed for hours without fatigue. The compound radius fingerboard is ideal for both chording and soloing, with a tight 9.5" radius at the nut that transitions to a fast 14" radius by the highest frets. Your fingers can chord tightly near the nut but bend strings easily up top. Pair this with medium-jumbo frets for the perfect combination of comfort and precision.
