OVERVIEW

Fender's most advanced Telecaster.

The Fender American Ultra Telecaster is the most-advanced production Tele that Fender has ever produced. Over two years in development, it boasts redesigned pickups, 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. If you love Teles, you will want to pick up one of these.

A whole new Telecaster

When Fender began designing the American Ultra Telecaster, the plan was to build the most advanced, most playable Tele ever, while unmistakably embodying the iconic single-cutaway design, with the added "Deluxe" feature of a top-bound body. The new, Modern-D neck profile and tapered neck heel combine with the smooth satin finish for an amazingly quick and comfortable playing experience with a feel that approaches raw wood. A compound-radius maple fingerboard features a premium rolled fret edge treatment for added comfort and playing ease.

Advanced electronics and hardware

The next-gen Ultra Noiseless single-coil pickups were painstakingly designed and redesigned until they got as close as possible to classic, vintage Tele twang, only without the hum. A bridge with individual chromed brass saddles helps being the traditional Telecaster "twang" to the game. Locking Fender tuners keep it tightly in tune, even when you go for those behind the nut bends and other classic Tele moves.

The American Ultra Tele is a guitar that will inspire you to new heights. Every guitar includes Fender's deluxe molded hardshell case for the protection the instrument deserves.

Making it new while respecting tradition

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 joint, 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
  • Dual Ultra Noiseless single-coil pickups for vintage tone with no 60-cycle hum
  • Modern D profile maple neck with satin finish feels like raw wood
  • Incredible playing comfort from the premium rolled-edge fret treatment and sculpted neck heel
  • Compound-radius maple fingerboard for easy chording and clean upper fret bends
