I'm looking into buying a strat or tele and i wanted to know what everyone thought of the new highway one series. Any good or should i look at any different fender guitars?

Cheers in advance,

Chris

Look into Japanese Fenders, or a used American Fender, or try a load of Mexicans and find a really decent one.

If it has nitro finish buy it, if you dont like the pup you can always switch them out.

The olf hwy ones had a **** finish and were not worth the money. Now with these new hwy ones I guess they are better, but id rather get a used american.

They are definatley an upgrade from a mexican, but I'd still rather shell out extra cash for an American standard.

Basically because of the stainless steel bridge, tuners, finish, etc.

But the H1 is still a genuine American fender, made in Corona California. It doesn't have mexican parts, it's all made in America.

Change the pickups and you've got a great instrument.
The finish is thin though. If you like the worn feel/look, great, if you want it to look brand new in 5 years, get something else.

The new ones are good, but I don't think they're really worth the $800 price tag on them. I'd say shell out the extra $150 for a regular American Standard.
