Most players are familiar with Fender’s hallmarks – from the twang of a great Tele, rich percussive expression of a Strat to the chime of a Jazzmaster and pure versatility of a P Bass. These tones and timeless designs are a core part of many guitarists’ identities. But now Fender is taking those signature strengths and combining them with truly modern, and sometimes surprising, premium features for its new American Ultra series.
The American Ultra Series is changing the way we play Fender's familiar designs by offering unique features to create an enhanced experience for players. A newly designed tapered neck heel and body contour allows easier access to the highest register than ever before. Even the neck profile here is bespoke to the series.
The Modern D-shape neck profile for the American Ultra Series, with 10”-14” compound radius fingerboard, compliments the instant comfort of rolled edges and ultra satin finish for an effortless playing experience.
The American Ultra Series’ attention to detail to enhance performance is reflected in every aspect of the instrument’s specification, from the locking machine heads on the Strat, Tele and Jazzmaster, through to the HiMass bridges on the Precision and Jazz Basses. Every instrument comes in a deluxe, fitted hardshell case.
Fender’s Ultra Noiseless™ pickups are also a key part of every American Ultra Series instrument. The latest evolution of Fender's design provides those essential and inspiring Fender single-coil tones without the unwanted intrusion of hum. S-1 switching systems on the Strat, Tele and Jazzmaster add further options to the voice of each guitar.
Series and Parallel tones are accessible on the Tele and Jazzmaster and the Strat offers increased pickup mix options and the unique Fender Double Tap Humbucker can be split to provide unmistakable single-coil Strat tones.
The American Ultra Precision, Jazz and Jazz V Bass models combines those qualities with an active preamp to enhance your playing with even wider tonal possibilities via mid, bass and treble boost/cut circuitry. For the first time the Precision Bass is now offered with a Noiseless pickup.
There's a wide range of new colour finishes premiering in the American Ultra range, including Cobra Blue, Mocha Burst, Texas Tea, Arctic Pearl and Ultraburst, complemented by bespoke pickguard finishes.
The American Ultra Series is bringing versatile instruments to discerning players who demand the very best in contemporary features that Fender has to offer.
