We can't help but get excited when we see new colour options for our favourite Fender models – and the new Tiger’s Eye Fender Ultra is among the most striking variation we've seen in a long time. 

Thankfully, the Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision Bass are all available in this wild new finish and feature a flame maple top, black headstock, matching black plastics and a stunning amber burst finish. 

If you are familiar with Fender's premium American-made model, you'll be well aware of just how highly these guitars are spec'd. 

Featuring a modern D neck profile, asymmetrical contour, a 10"-14" compound radius fingerboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, a real bone nut and a set of Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups, this is the most advanced series of guitars and basses Fender currently produces. 

While the limited edition Tiger’s Eye models are listed as exclusive to Guitar Center, they are also available to purchase at Musician’s Friend, one of Guitar Center’s subsidiary companies.
