The Fastest, Sleekest Fenders yet
The Fender Ultra Series Stratocaster is Fenders farthest departure from its regular body-shape for decades. With an exquisitely rounded and shaped heel for easy access to the higher register and extreme body contouring the Ultra Series Strat is by far the sleekest, smoothest Fender. The body is made from Alder a light airy wood that helps provide Fenders legendary sustain.
Built for Speed
One of the most innovative design features of the Ultra series Stratocaster is the tapered "Modern D" neck profile. The neck is made from choice Maple and finished in Satin and gloss Urethane. The Maple neck and fingerboard is a bubbly sounding tonewood with a warm resonance. The Ultra series neck radius is tapered from 10" at the low end to 14" and the higher register, With ultra rolled edges the Ultra series fingerboard is one of the easiest and most accessible necks Fender has produced. So if you are looking for a classic Fender style neck profiling but mixed with a flatter higher-end ideal for quick, choke free soloing then look no further than the Fender Ultra series Stratocaster.
A new world of tone
Musicians are always looking for new sounds and tones to expand their sonic armoury and Fender understand this. Extreme high quality electronics are what separates guitar manufacturers and Fender has consistently proven they are the absolute pinnacle of electronics for guitars. Every guitar player knows the distinctive bubbly tone of a Stratocaster neck pickup or the snappy twang of the Telecaster bridge pickup. The Ultra Series Stratocaster utilizes Fenders S-1 Switching system to provide 5 extra sonic options in your musical arsenal.
Hum the tune and tune out the hum
Fenders Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups add a further dimension to their unwavering commitment to provide the best possible quality. Now you can play with confidence, the Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups eliminate hum from the single coils while maintaining their crystal clear power and clarity. The S-1 switching system adds the option of adding the neck pickup to the first three-neck positions as well as standard 4th and 5th position.
Fenders attention to detail continues with its innovative hardware. With Fenders coveted locking tuners not only will you hold tune for longer but changing the strings has never been easier. Simply feed the string into the gap, turn the peg until in position and hand tighten the wheel and you are set to play. The shorter height of the machine head and the increased break angle at the nut increases string tension giving a livelier response. The 2 point deluxe bridge and pop in tremolo are also of the highest quality and allow the player to articulate their sound accurately with subtle vibrato or swooping trem dives.
