...oil, that is. Black gold. Texas Tea. Jed Clampett would totally shred this Strat!
The American Ultra series is a hallmark of the Fender line; Fender's American Ultras are their most advanced series of guitars, and this Strat is really something special. And with that thick black glossy finish, Texas Tea is the perfect name for it.
Fender spared no expense on this thing. The maple modern D-profile neck feels immaculate in the hands, and the compound 10"-14" radius rosewood fretboard is a perfect pairing for the tapered neck heel, allowing you to reach even the highest registers with ease for those über shreddy moments. This guitar is the perfect ergonomic instrument, even down to the rear body contours, this guitar feels like it was custom made to fit any player that picks it up.
In addition to the construction specs, Fender also loaded this bad boy up with Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups so you can get that sparkle and bite you want out of a Strat, with none of the dreaded hum that single coils are infamous for. And the S-1 switch built into the top Volume knob adds the neck pickup in to any switch position
And it weighs in at just 8.16 lbs.
The original gold anodized pickguard for this guy has been swapped out for a very cool black 2-ply vibe but the original guard and backplate will be included.
This guitar is very lightly used. There is some pick wear on the pickguard and in the right light you can make out surface level pick wear on the top behind the bridge and on the back.
Our expert luthiers here at EMS have given it a fresh setup and ensured that it has easy low action and perfect intonation.
We'll ship this bad boy to you super fast and super safe in its original hardshell case with case candy. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have about it!
