Improving on the classic Stratocaster design is a tall order, but one that Fender has followed through with. Introducing the Fender American Ultra Stratocaster HSS — Fender's high-performance ultra-modern incarnation of the Stratocaster. It carries several improvements such as noiseless pickups, a 10"–14" compound radius fretboard, and S-1 switching that takes this strat to a new level. This isn't your classic Strat by any means. Don't worry though, this Strat still gives you all the spank and sparkle you can ask for. Just plug into your favorite amp and you'll immediately hear the difference. The whole instrument has been thought out and designed in painstaking detail, all the way down to the embossed Fender headstock logo and extra comfortable trem arm. To truly experience everything that Fender offers, there's only one instrument to choose — the Fender American Ultra Stratocaster HSS.

Fender American Ultra Stratocaster at a Glance:

  • Alder body with sculpted rear contours
  • One Ultra Double Tap™ humbucking bridge pickup; two Ultra Noiseless Hot Strat single-coil pickups (middle and neck)
  • “Modern D”-shaped neck with Ultra satin finish
  • 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard; 22 medium-jumbo frets
  • Includes premium molded hardshell case

Upgraded noiseless pickups with extra switching abilities

The American Ultra HSS Stratocaster is loaded with two single-coil pickups and a Tim Shaw designed Ultra Double Tap humbucker in the bridge. Fender's noiseless circuitry allows you to get all the spanky strat goodness without any annoying hum. Seriously, plug it into a Plexi and crank it. You won't get any hum from the pickups. This Strat has a silky-smooth 5-way switch that gives you tons of tones to choose from. When you press down on the volume pot, you'll find the S-1 switch and activate the Double Tap feature on the humbucker. Double Tap splits the humbucker into a single-coil without losing half of your volume like other coil-splitting designs.

Made to be played

The headline says it all. This Strat is made to be played. Hard. The Ultra Satin Neck has Fender's Modern D profile that facilitates fast playing without feeling like you're playing a baseball bat. It has a compound radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets that make it just as easy to play chords near the nut as it is to melt faces at the higher frets. The fretboard also has rolled edges to give you hours of playing comfort. Soloing is easy too, thanks to the tapered neck heel and the extra hand contour on the lower cutaway. To put it simply, the American Ultra HSS Stratocaster has a neck with upgraded features that the discerning player cannot pass up.

Fender Stratocaster: the world's go-to guitar

Players all over the world have loved the Stratocaster since its introduction in 1954. The Stratocaster has been played by the most influential guitar players, such as Buddy Holly to high gain masters like Malmsteen to the virtuosic blues of Clapton and others. By relying on sturdy building techniques and unmatched playability, it's little wonder why the Stratocaster is so popular today.

10”-14” Compound-Radius

Built for speed and easy bending, the 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard is rounded near the nut for chording ease, becoming increasingly flatter as it nears the upper register for easy soloing.

Enhanced Body Contours

The tapered neck heel allows unparalleled access to the upper registers of the fingerboard, while the sculpted rear body contour is designed for comfort.

Powerful Pickups

The Ultra Noiseless Hot single-coil pickups offer modern Fender tone without hum. In conjunction with the Ultra Double Tap™ humbucking bridge pickup this calibrated set is supremely versatile and offers dynamic Fender tone that is second to none.

Advanced Electronics

The volume knob’s S-1 switch splits the Ultra Double Tap™ humbucking pickup into a full throated single-coil, perfectly calibrated with the neck and middle pickups, thanks to patented Double Tap technology. In addition, a treble bleed circuit maintains your highs at any volume.
