Announcing the New Fender American Ultra Series

Modern Player-centric Features

Fender guitars have a timeless appeal. That said, modern players desire high-performance features that vintage designs simply don’t provide. Enter the Fender American Ultra series. These instruments retain the look and vibe of a classic Fender but boast modern, high-end features that today’s players demand, such as contoured bodies, compound-radius fingerboards, and tapered neck heels. Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups churn out the classic tones you know and love, while advanced wiring options ensure endless tonal possibilities — all without the hum. The American Ultra basses also boast active preamps, giving you even more tonal flexibility when you’re holding down the low end.

Seriously Upgraded Hardware

These instruments include numerous high-end features, such as locking tuners, strap locks, and bone nuts. The guitarists here at Sweetwater also appreciate their eye-catching embossed headstock logos. The Fender American Ultra series runs the full gamut of classic models, including Stratocasters, Telecasters, Jazzmasters, Precision Basses, and Jazz Basses, in a variety of captivating finishes. No matter which Fender fits your style, there’s an American Ultra for you.

  • Comfortable belly and arm contours
  • 10"–14" compound-radius fingerboards
  • Tapered neck heels
  • Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups

I would love to see a stainless steel frets from fender. About two years ago I had a choice between an American elite Stratocaster and a Suhr classic pro. I went with the Suhr because of stainless steel frets. Now I do own a fender American professional jazz bass and it is a phenomenal instrument. But with guitar I need stainless steel frets. I have a prs McCarty 2 that had a fret crowing a while ago and now needs new frets. I want to deal with fret maintenance as little as possible. That’s my 2 cents. As soon as fender makes a guitar with stainless steel frets I will buy it. Until then there are other options.

P.S.
Roasted maple necks would have been nice as well.
