Australian guitarist Harts is the star of Fender’s new American Ultra campaign

Harts, who once received a co-sign from Prince and has also received international attention after making an appearance on Denzel Curry’s blistering Like A Version back in February, is one of Australia’s best underground talents, and he definitely knows how to put a Strat to work. Check out some of his funk chops in the advertisement below – you can really hear elements of Frusciante seeping out in some of those syncopated funk patterns.

 

 

In an accompanying statement, Harts expressed his disbelief at the prospect of working with the iconic brand, saying “It’s incredible to be part of this project, especially with a brand as iconic as Fender,” said Harts. “As a young teenager learning guitar, I couldn’t have imagined contributing to the global launch of their new top-of-the-line American-made series,” he said.

 

You can check out Harts tour around the country performing a Hendrix tribute show next year – head here for all the details and dates.
