An advanced electric guitar with exceptional comfort, tone and versatility.

The Fender American Ultra Stratocaster HSS electric guitar provides discerning players with the ultimate in precision, performance and tone. This versatile guitar features the Modern D neck profile with rolled fingerboard edges for hours of playing comfort. The compound radius fingerboard allows effortless and accurate soloing across all 22 medium-jumbo frets. The guitar's Ultra Noiseless pickups produce a myriad of hum-free tones, while the HSS pickup configuration offers tonal flexibility. The sculpted rear body contours provide an ergonomic design for smooth playability. With the S-1 switch, you can blend in the neck pickup for even more tonal options. The advanced switching possibilities and sealed locking tuners provide exceptional tuning stability. This state-of-the-art Fender comes complete with a premium molded hardshell case.

Sculpted Body Contouring Marries Beauty and Comfort

The contoured heel and rear body shape not only lend the American Ultra Stratocaster HSS its elegant, flowing lines, but also enhance playing comfort. The sculpted cutaway allows easy upper fret access, while the contoured forearm and back contours enable your fretting arm and picking hand to play in a natural position. Whether seated or standing, the body shape ensures total playing ease. And the S-1 switch adds the neck pickup to any position with a push, expanding the tonal options exponentially.

Modern D Neck Profile for Superior Comfort

The American Ultra Stratocaster HSS has Fender's Modern D neck profile, which feels extremely comfortable during long practice or gigging sessions. Its rolled fingerboard edges minimize friction against your hands. The smooth neck heel allows easy access all the way up the 22 medium-jumbo frets. The ergonomic neck design makes playing this Stratocaster feel effortless.

Compound Radius Fingerboard for Accurate Soloing

The American Ultra's compound radius fingerboard shifts from a tighter 10" radius at the nut to a flatter 14" radius at the highest frets. This provides low-action chording around the first position while promoting easy string-bending and soloing higher up the neck. The flatness across the higher frets allows for wide vibratos and comfortable wide-interval stretches.

Ultra Noiseless Pickups Deliver Endless Tone Options

This Fender Stratocaster HSS features a trio of Ultra Noiseless pickups for pristine hum-free tones. The Ultra Double Tap humbucker bridge pickup provides thick, articulate leads and aggressive crunch. The Ultra Noiseless Vintage single-coil neck and middle pickups offer sparkling bell-like tones perfect for Strat-style rhythm and solos. With three different pickup types, you have endless tonal possibilities right at your fingertips.

Advanced Switching Unlocks More Sounds

The 5-way pickup selector blade provides access to the individual pickups and combinations that Strat players know and love. The handy S-1 switch allows you to blend in the neck pickup with any switch position, adding more tonal colors. The master volume control incorporates the S-1 function, while the two tone controls let you shape the middle and bridge pickups. The advanced switching possibilities help you craft your signature sound.

Premium Components Provide Rock-Solid Reliability

The American Ultra Stratocaster HSS is equipped with sealed locking tuners, a bone nut and quality chrome hardware for exceptional tuning stability, resonance and sustain. It comes protected in a deluxe molded hardshell case, making storage and transport worry-free. From its ergonomic body and neck shapes to its hum-free pickups and advanced switching options, this Strat provides an ideal blend of timeless Fender tone and modern innovation.
