Product Description

The new pickups on the Highway One Stratocaster guitar produce a more round tone that can sound glassy and great with high gain. The thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body wood's natural tone shine through, making for one of the most exciting new instruments in the Fender family! This version of the Fender Highway One Stratocaster features a Maple fretboard for slightly brighter tone.

Features:

- Huge Frets -- More player friendly; easier to play
- Made in U.S.A. -- Quality manufacturing
- Alnico III Pickups -- Voiced to today's modern sound by rounding off extreme highs; very distortion friendly, but still sparkles when clean
- Greasebucket Circuitry -- Lets you roll off highs without muffling the tone
- Thin Satin Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish -- Lets tone of body wood shine through and project. Will "break in" easily

"one of the best strats ever made!"
Sound: this strat is one of the most versatile tone strat's that i have come across in a long time. live or recording this strat does it all when it comes to tone it's a tone monster. Feature: this is what a real strat is all about. no extra bell's and whistles that most strats have today.it's the real deal. Ease of Use: very easy to use and very versatile the Alnico III SSS pick ups are simply fantastic. much better than the new american standards. Quality: the quality and craftmanship is A+ just as good as most customshop strats the cosmetics are flawless i dont worry about anything going wrong with this strat. this strat is more than just worthy for the road its built for the road and no back ups are needed with this baby. and its one of the most tone versatile guitars period! Value: i paid $930 for mine and its the best investment i have made in any of my guitars. as far as tone versatility and sustain the american standards cant touch this. and its one of the most solid built guitars i'v seen. the neck is smooth and no ruff edges on the jumbo fretts. also love the thin nitro finish. it looks/feels and sounds customshop built. thankyou fender its Brilliant! The Wow Factor: i have it and i'm getting more. Overall: over this is one of the best strats fender has put out in a long while. this strat does it all and more. hard rock/classic rock/blues it does it all. i have compared the highway one sss with three differnt 2008 american standards and the highway one simply blew the american standards right off the stage. if jimi hendrix was alive he would have a few of these for shure.
Style of Music: hard rock/classic rock/blues.

Sound: This ax is a work of art. I own the tri color w/maple neck. The alnico 3 pick-ups can go from crystal clear to screaming hot. Fantastic! Played through a Carvin V3 full stack, a Line 6-Spirder 3 or a Peavy 6505+ you couldn't ask for a better sounding guitar. Right out of the box the intonation was perfect the action was just right, nice and low. I did have to spend about five minutes raising the hight of to the pick-ups slightly. This feels as comfortable as if I had been playing it for years. I bought a new Strat in 1984 that I still own which I had to replace the original pick-ups with EMG DG-20's because the original Strat pick-ups were really noisy. That's not a problem with this highway one Strat, not at all. As I play on the road and in the studio I won't hesitate to use the guitar on either. It is and will remain part of my guitar arsonel. Feature: I am partial to guitars with Floyd Rose bridges with locking nuts but, at under $700.00 I can't complain. Besides I can always add one myself. Another thing I might do is add a graphite nut. Fender hit a home run with this guitar! No kidding, this thing was only slightly out of tune when I took it out of the box. Ease of Use: There is no problem getting this baby to sing. I can get a clean glassy sound in one channel and a screaming heathen out of the lead channel. There is no learning curve. If you know the sound your looking for, you can find it with this ax. This thing feels sooooo good in your hands, very comfortable. Quality: This guitar is made extremely well and is beautifully finished. It will remain in my arsonel of guitars till I retire or till the good Lord retires me. I'll use it on the road and in the studio. Value: This guitar is worth 3X what I paid for it. Why, because I've paid three times the price I paid for this guitar on other guitars and can honestly say I don't think the more expensive guitars are that much better. Manufacturer Support: I've never had to call Fender for support. So, I can't honestly answer this question. The Wow Factor: The tri color with maple neck is absolutely beautiful. Overall: I've had my 1984 Strat scence 1984 so I figure I'll keep this one at least as long. I choose the highway one Strat because of the alnico 3 pick-ups and of coarse the price. I truly can't imagine why anyone would by a more expensive Strat. This one is American made with alnico 3 pick-ups with an unbelievable low price. Go figure!!!
