In the early 1990s, Fender launched the Ultra line which brought modern updates to the classic Stratocaster design while retaining its iconic look and feel.

A few of the distinctive features of the Stratocaster Ultra are the use of Lace Sensor pickups, locking tuners, roller nut, 2-point bridge/trem, a 22 fret fingerboard and Schaller stap locks. Some of these things will sound commonplace to modern players, but if you keep in mind these guitars came out in the early '90s, they were quite forward leaning and offered players an alternative to the pointy/neon guitars that were popular at the time (not that there's a thing wrong with pointy and neon!).
The Lace pickups were designed to retain the classic single-coil Stratocaster tone while delivering noiseless operation. The HSS setup, along with a 5-way switch and mini-toggle switch, allow for a wide range of tones and the roller nut and 2-point trem let you get your "Eruption" licks on.
If you're into Strats and love the idea of owning what we'll call a "neo-vintage" Strat with some fun features? This is your guitar. It's a hell of a lot of fun and a cool example from Fender's history.
