If you are thinking, “Fender has already made some of the best electric guitars in the world for over 70 years – how could they possibly improve?” then brace yourself for the American Ultra Series collection. Noted as Fender’s most advanced guitar, this series boasts all-new modern features in their most iconic designs. While visiting the 2020 NAMM Show, we were able to get our hands on an American Ultra Telecaster.
We immediately noticed significant changes in the neck – it felt more comfortable and effortless to play. This is largely thanks to the tapered neck heel, which allows easy access to the higher register. Additionally, Fender paired a rolled compound-radius fingerboard with the unique “Modern D” neck profile for ultimate speed and comfort. This guitar is also equipped with their Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups to provide a broad spectrum of tone without hum. The series/parallel circuit provides more volume and midrange to play with.
Make no mistake, the Fender American Ultra is certain to win over all styles of players and give many of their shred competitors a run for their money.
