Beautiful looks, exceptional tone celebrating 70 years of Fender Strat legacy.

Celebrate seven decades of Fender with the 70th Anniversary American Ultra Stratocaster HSS. This incredible instrument blends the rich heritage of the Stratocaster with cutting-edge design to create a modern classic. The sleek Amethyst finish dazzles with an iridescent shimmer that shifts colors as you play. Equipped with the Ultra Noiseless pickup set, the HSS configuration pumps out pristine articulation and fluid sustain. The Modern D neck profile offers hours of playing comfort, while the compound 10"-14" fingerboard radius allows effortless chording and soloing anywhere on the neck. Powered by a Quad-Tap humbucker, this versatile guitar provides rocking lead tones with plenty of bite and growl. Roasted maple construction ensures absolute stability and enhanced resonance. Other premium features include locking tuners, tremolo bridge and an S-1 switch for even more tonal options. Own a piece of Fender history with the 70th Anniversary American Ultra Stratocaster HSS.

Absolute Stability and Enhanced Resonance With Roasted Maple

The roasted maple neck and fingerboard provide rock-solid stability that stands up to changes in temperature and humidity. The roasting process enhances the wood's resilience against shifting weather conditions so it retains its integrity. This stability allows the neck to boast a slimmer profile while promoting brilliant resonance and sustain. You'll feel the difference in the way notes bloom with harmonic complexity, chords ring out with authority and bends vibrate with intensity. Roasted maple construction unlocks the Stratocaster's full potential for singing tone and dynamic response.

Hours of Playing Comfort With the Modern D Neck Profile

The Modern D neck carves out a fast feel that facilitates intricate solos and complex chording. Its modern elliptical profile tapers from a comfortably rounded shoulder into a flatter back contour. Combined with the Ultra-rolled fingerboard edges, your hand glides smoothly up and down the maple neck during extended playing sessions. The smooth satin finish back of the neck minimizes friction against your palm. While the Modern D neck excels for shredding, it also facilitates rhythm playing and exploring the upper register. Find your sweet spot on the maple fingerboard wherever inspiration strikes.

Effortless Playability Across the Entire Neck

The speedy 10"-14" compound radius fingerboard allows comfortable chording around the first few frets while promoting easy bending and soloing higher up the neck. This modern fingerboard radius enhances playability across the entire width of the maple fingerboard. Navigating the 22 medium-jumbo frets becomes second nature, allowing you to play with precision, speed and confidence. The neck heel also provides unfettered access to the highest registers. Shred lightning-fast solos, perform intricate chords and explore new horizons on the 70th Anniversary American Ultra Stratocaster HSS.

Pristine Clarity and Endless Tonal Possibilities With Ultra Noiseless Pickups

Harness the full potential of the Stratocaster with the specialized Ultra Noiseless pickup set. The bridge humbucker provides thick, growling leads and rich low end. Combined with the Ultra Noiseless single-coils in the middle and neck positions, you get exceptional definition across the tonal spectrum. Notes ring out with crystalline articulation, chords chime with complexity and solos sing with fluid sustain. From sparkling cleans to roaring overdrive, the Ultra Noiseless pickups showcase the Strat's versatility like never before—with no hum or noise. Dial in your ideal tone with the 5-way pickup selector, then engage the S-1 switch to split the humbucker for even more tonal options.

Unique Iridescent Amethyst Finish That Changes Colors as You Play

This special edition Stratocaster features an eye-catching iridescent Amethyst finish that shifts hues as light moves across the contoured alder body. Witness a rainbow of colors emerge while you play this stunning guitar. The gloss urethane finish accentuates the wood grain beneath for a vintage touch.
