Fender American Ultra Telecaster Tone

Like the other models in Fender's new American Ultra series, this Telecaster sports Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups that offer players true classic Fender tone without ever having to worry about any hum. The addition of the S-1 switch gives you the ability to select between series or parallel wiring for added tonal range, while the treble bleed circuit preserves your high-end at any volume.

Fender American Ultra Telecaster Feel

All of the Fender American Ultra models feature a sleek yet comfortable “Modern D” neck profile with ultra rolled fingerboard edges. We began to really appreciate these features during long practice sessions. With this Tele', you'll also get a tapered neck heel and fast 10”-14” compound-radius fingerboard with 22 medium-jumbo frets for ease of access to all the notes you need.

Why We Like It

If you've had tuning issues in the past, get ready for a new experience. Thanks to Fender's high-performance locking tuning machines, you'll stay in-tune through your most aggressive chicken-picks, slaps, and chord strikes.
