Ultra noiseless pickups
The American Ultra is loaded with an Ultra Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge, and Ultra Precision Bass pickup in the middle. They deliver a powerful, punchy tone that can be further colored with the active preamp. “We worked with Stan Cody—who is an in-house electronics wizard at Fender— and re-voiced the EQ points,” said Giffin. The result? Endless tonal possibilities with zero noise or hum.
The preamp can be toggled active or passive. The other controls on the American Ultra Precision Bass are also ultra-modern. Pickup selects are made with a pan pot. Other sounds can be found via a treble boost/cut, midrange boost/cut and a bass boost/cut.
New neck contour
A first for Fender, the American Ultra’s tapered neck heel allows for easier access to those high frets. “We worked with the engineers in the factory to make sure it was still structurally stable and had integrity, but was as thin as we could get it,” said Giffin. “It’s a pretty significant reduction in the bulk right at the base of the neck.”
