About Fender American Ultra Series

The Fender American Ultra Series is a new range of premium USA-made instruments. It replaces the American Elite Series.

The Ultra Series includes a Stratocaster (with an option for an HSS model), a Telecaster, a Jazzmaster, a Precision and a Jazz bass. The Jazz bass is also available as a 5 string model.

The collection brings a list of player-friendly upgrades to these classic Fender instruments. These can be found in the necks, pickups and finishes. The necks have a new 'Modern D' profile and a compound radius fingerboard which develops from a 10' radius gradually into a 14' radius. Newly designed Ultra Noiseless pickups have a vintage tone but none of the hum found in many single coil pickup designs.

The Ultra Series is a carefully balanced combination of classic guitar design, subtle upgrading and fresh new colours. Players who appreciate the Fender heritage but want a slightly more contemporary feel will be immediately at home with the American Ultra series.

  • Frequently Asked Questions about Fender American Ultra Series

    A compound radius is great for players who cover lots of lead playing and chording on the same instrument. The flatter high end of the neck is great for soloing, whilst the more rounded low end has a very comfortable feel for chord playing. There is no compromise!
    The finish on the necks of all Fender American Ultra Series instruments is Satin Urethane, with glossy headstock faces.
    The finishes vary depending on model and fingerboard choices, but here is a list of all finishes for the Fender American Ultra series: Texas Tea, Ultra Burst, Cobra Blue, Arctic Pearl, Mocha Burst, Aged Natural, Butterscotch Blonde, Plasma Red Burst
