Fender American Ultra Telecaster Maple Ultraburst Guitar
American Ultra Telecaster®, Maple Fingerboard, Ultraburst
The top of the line American made Fender electric guitar has always been reserved for the model that takes the heritage and legacy of Fender’s past and pushes it into the hands of the modern guitarist. Starting from where the Elite series left off, the new American Ultra series is Fender's most precise and refined range of instruments to date. No stone was left unturned when Fender put their most famous workhorse, the Telecaster back onto the design board.
The American Ultra Telecaster stays true to the core essence of the original Telecaster design, its simplicity and sleek lines but pushes nearly everything about it to make it the most improved version of the classic ever made. The biggest refinement to the Ultra Telecaster is the redesigned body contours. The newly designed sculpted neck heel gives players the easiest and most comfortable access ever to the dusty end of the fingerboard. The other big refinement is the neck of the Fender Ultra Tele. The dual action easy access truss rod of the Elite Series has been replaced with the more standard Bi-Flex Truss Rod and the neck shape has been changed to a super comfortable, incredibly fast modern D. The 10”-14” compound fingerboard radius perfectly complements this new neck shape for effortless bending, speedy solos and extended chord work.
The final big change to the new American Ultra Telecaster is, of course, the Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups, the most vintage accurate and sounding noiseless pickups ever made. Fender has also come up with the most exquisite selection of finishes ever for the new American Ultra range of Guitars and Basses. The new American Ultra Telecaster really is the pinnacle of Fenders 69 years of building and developing guitars. An equal workhorse for musicians both old school or modern.
Ultra Noiseless™ Vintage Tele®
Fenders single-coil pickups have been loved by guitarist since the 50s. The bright, responsive sparkly tones are generally what draws people towards Fender electric guitars. Many Fender players describe single-coil pickups as the pickup type that most allow the natural voice of the individual player to shine through. However, these loved pickups do pose a number of issues that many musicians simply can't get through. The big one is, of course, the extra noise that they produce. Because of the simplistic design of the pickup, it is common that you will often hear humming and buzzing from your electric guitar, particularly if you are near other electrical objects or you’re using lots of gain. Some people love this extra noise and just accept it as part of the mojo but for many, particularly people who record a lot using modern, super clean digital methods or people who play with insane amounts of high-gain, this noise is just too much of an issue. For over 20 years now Fender has been listening and have been on the quest to develop the ultimate pickup. A pickup that retains every bit of detail that you would expect from a vintage-style single-coil guitar however without any of the added noise. The new Ultra Noiseless Vintage Telecaster pickup truly is Fenders most vintage sounding noiseless Telecaster pickup that they have ever made. All the sweetness and mellowness that you would expect from the neck pickup as well as a super twangy bridge pickup for all your blazing country licks.
With versatility in mind, the American Ultra Telecaster comes with the added S1 switch sneakily hidden in the master volume knob. This clever little switch actually changes the internal wiring from Parallel to Series. This means that when the switch is engaged and you are in the middle position of the 3 way switch the 2 pickups kind of become 1 pickup. The overall output becomes hotter and fuller and it helps pushes your amp into new levels of overdrive. It's a bit like having a boost pedal built straight into your guitar.
The new American Ultra Telecaster comes with many features that really helps it stand out as a premium instrument. The Locking Tuners, the Treble Bleed circuit and of course the Elite Moulded case is just some examples of these features. There is however one feature in particular that really makes this Tele stand out as a guitar well above the rest. This is the enhanced Ultra Rolled Fingerboard Edges. This small detail really does make this guitar feel like the most comfortable Tele that I have ever played. It feels like it has been played-in for well over 50 years and the best bit is that its brand new from the box. It's this attention to detail that you find on the new Ultra Telecaster that really shows why this is Fender’s top of the range Tele.
