PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE

We love it when Fender improves upon their legendary designs for the contemporary player, and are thus extremely excited to bring you this awesome American Ultra Strat!

The "Cobra Blue" finish on this one is absolutely stunning and is one of the best blue metallic finishes Fender has done in its history. It's similar to Lake Placid Blue, but is even more vivid with a little more "sapphire" in its makeup and has a brilliant luster to it that's simply pleasing to look at, almost like a gemstone. 

As a spiritual successor to the "American Deluxe" series of old, the Ultra Stratocaster features a compound-radius fretboard, which makes high-register playing almost as comfortable as on a shredder-style guitar - an ease of playability that's a sweet contrast from the vintage vibe of the Strat. The neck profile is just so comfortable, making this an easy choice for a long jam session or gig. 

The Ultra Noiseless pickups sound amazing, very "vintage Strat", and are super versatile, as is the bridge Ultra Double-Tap humbucker. The singles give you classic Strat tone without the annoying single-coil hum, which comes in handy when you want to play higher-gain styles or on a noisy stage or studio with subpar lighting or power filtering. The Double Tap humbucker easily nails classic and modern rock tones, with a good amount of output that still manages to stay clear and blend well with the neck and middle pickups. Definitively a classic humbucker tone but so clear, especially under gain. Push the S-1 switch on the volume knob to split the humbucker and allow you access to an "SSS" Strat-style configuration, if needed. It really sounds great - and features hum-free operation no matter what!

If you want a true American-made Fender Stratocaster with timeless looks that also innovates and takes an already-great platform to the next level, check out this American Ultra!
