After an initial announcement at NAMM back in January, Fender has officially launched four mouth-watering new American Ultra Luxe electric guitar models, which take the already top-end America Ultra specs up a gear.

New features to the line include the addition of stainless steel frets – a first for Fender guitars, to our recollection – as well as unique Augmented “D” neck profiles with ultra rolled fingerboard edges, tapered neck heels and speedy 10”-14” compound-radius, 22-fret fingerboards.
