Overview

The finest production Strat, ever.

The Fender American Ultra Stratocaster HSS takes everything you love about hot-rodded Strats and kicks it up a notch. Over two years in development, it boasts redesigned noseless single-coils, the amazing DoubleTap humbucker, a sculpted neck heel, advanced Modern D profile neck, compound-radius maple fingerboard with a premium rolled-edge fret treatment and a range of eye-catching new finishes.

Revisions that make sense

Not just minor tweaks, but serious updates make the Fender American Ultra HSS Stratocaster a guitar that can take your playing to a whole new level. Rethought from the ground up, the American Ultra HSS Strat features the classic Stratocaster contoured body and much more. The smooth, satin-finish Modern-D neck profile is slimmer and faster with the feel of raw wood. The compound-radius maple fingerboard has a premium rolled-edge treatment for ultra-smooth chording and single-note playing. A newly designed, contoured neck joint makes upper fret access easier than ever.

Vintage tones without hum

When it comes to the electronics, the HSS version of the American Ultra Strat is loaded with next-gen Ultra Noiseless pickups in the neck and middle positions. These pickups were painstakingly designed to provide vintage Fender single-coil tone, without vintage single-coil hum. In the bridge, sits one of Fender's patent pending DoubleTap hum buckers, with a push/pull S1 switch on the volume pot to move between humbucker and an expressive, hot-rodded, tapped single-coil for expanded tonal possibilities. Fender's two-point fulcrum tremolo gives you all the whammy action you could want. Fender's sealed, locking tuners keep your tuning tight when you do. The American Ultra Stratocaster includes Fender's deluxe molded hardshell case.

Building the next generation of classics

Fender's American Ultra instruments were more than two years in development. Intended from the beginning to push the envelope while remaining distinctively Fender. They are the most advanced production guitars Fender has ever made outside of the Custom Shop. Boasting new pickup designs, modern profile necks, compound-radius, premium rolled-edge fingerboards on the Strat and Tele models, and a revolutionary new neck heel, the entire series delivers an amazing playing experience and an expanded tonal range. If you were a Fender fan before, these will be love at first play, and if you weren't, these might be the guitars to change your mind.

Features
