75th Anniversary Series
Limited-edition 75th Anniversary Stratocasters, Telecasters, Precision Basses, and Jazz Basses are handbuilt in Corona, California, with premium, classic features befitting Leo Fender's legacy.
Expected to ship in February, each also includes some special details: a custom Inca Silver molded hardshell case with plush Lake Placid Blue interior, a special certificate of authenticity, a 75th anniversary ingot inlaid into the back of the headstock, and an engraved anniversary neck plate.
All Corona-built models are available with ash bodies—which, as of April 2020, Fender is saving for such special-edition runs—in two-color Bourbon Burst with one-piece maple necks and Custom Shop pickups.
American Ultra Luxe
Released in late 2019, Fender's American Ultra series is now joined by the American Ultra Luxe: new, distinctive models with a slight edge on their predecessors. Each of the new models is expected to arrive in April.
The American Ultra Luxe Stratocaster "features Ultra Noiseless Vintage pickups and advanced wiring options providing endless tonal possibilities–without hum," Fender writes. It's available in 2-Color Sunburst (with Rosewood or Maple board) or Plasma Red Burst (with Maple board).
