Hey, I am looking to buy strat - I have been looking at Fender Highway one and the classic player 60s strat. Which do you think is better - do you think that the polyester finish on the CP 60s is a deal breaker compared to highway ones satin nitro finish. I play blues mainly (clapton, SRV etc...) and RHCP kinda stuff if that helps.

Thanks.

The Highway One is generally better quality than the Classic Player.
But as long as the Classic Player sounds good to you the finish shouldn't be a dealbreaker.

my blackstar shirt is 20% polyester, although they say it's all 100% cotton.

guitar finishes are polyurathane.

i'd avoid all guitars with a dude in a polyester suit, like the plague.

that said, try an american special as well.

the finish should never be a deal breaker.

If you're not playing a $2,000+ amplifier, you won't tell the difference.

this.

the difference is minimal to the extent where eric johnson might say "it does affect the tone a bit but it's no big deal".
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
