The American Ultra Series. Blending classic design with supreme, modern features and craftsmanship, Fender's American Ultra Series is here to rule the world of guitars. Made in the US with superb attention to detail, they are instruments without limits, and will immediately become your favourite to play. Whether you’re taking it out on tour, recording tracks professionally in the studio, or even practising in your bedroom, you can expect the ultimate performance from your American Ultra instrument – no matter what the situation.
No one should have to compromise on their tone. And a selection of Ultra Noiseless single-coil and humbucking Strat pickups ensure you don't have to. The clue's in the name. Eliminating the infamous 60-cycle hum out of your sound, these slashing single-coils kick out all the vintage tones you'd expect out of a classic Fender. But with more clarity than ever before, your lead playing will slash through the mix, while your chords maintain exceptional definition. So you can showcase your talent, and be heard on stage.
Hailed as one of the most versatile instruments out there, the Strat has truly earned its iconic status. And the American Ultra HSS Strat maintains its flawless reputation, offering enough tonal capacity to satisfy any genre. An Ultra Double Tap humbucker sits in the bridge position, offering a thicker, hotter sound than that of a single-coil. So, for those scorching lead tones, you can simply switch the 5-way selector and let loose with your playing. It's your sound after all.
Nothing but the best. Fender's years of experimentation and design innovation have yielded some of the greatest necks known to man. This one is no different. In fact, the Modern 'D' maple neck on the American Ultra HSS Stratocaster could be the best you ever hold, being smooth, comfortable, and easy to navigate. With the superb satin finish, you'll find your hand glides along its surface, making fret transitions a breeze. And the rolled edges make for an even more comfortable playing experience. Liberate your licks.
Take your fingers for a ride. The maple fretboard will have them dancing along its surface as fast as you like. It has a bright resonance, adding even more punch and snap to each note you play. And its smooth surface makes for exceptionally comfortable, free movements along each fret. You'll be able to solo effortlessly on this sleek, premium fretboard, and your inspiration is sure to come to life when you discover its sublime feel. Let nothing stand in your way to perfect playing.
It doesn't get more creative than using a whammy bar in performance. Hendrix used one in his Woodstock performance. Jeff Beck made it his own. And now, you can inject your performance with your own creative flair. Whether you're unleashing screeching dive bombs, giving your solo that extra kick, or simply decorating your chords with some elegant shimmer – the famed Strat tremolo system gives players an even bigger platform to experiment their sound with. A Strat wouldn't be a Strat without it. So it goes without saying that the American Ultra HSS features the iconic tremolo bridge design, for even more possibilities in your sound.
