Im looking at buying a deluxe MIM strat or an equivalent tele as soon as i get enough money again, which may not be until Christmas, but i have heard a lot of rly good things about the Highway One series. are they rly worht that extra $150? im planning on playing the rest of my life, but not anything serious, just messing around with friends and playing at Church.

sir, i would like to inform you that you are now my favorite UGer. Not only did you use the word y'all, which is native to my homeland, but you correctly punctuated it using the apostrophe.

I personally liked the deluxe player's strat more than the highway, and it has better pickups. Though I haven't played the newest highway 1, so I'm not sure. Check eBay, I got my american stratocaster for 630 new.
Yeah Dimebag is not the "Greatest Guitarist" of all time... Hendrix maybe... I must go get food to eat with my mouth

$250 for an amp? wow. is it worth it to invest that much in the amp?

I like my HW1 if that's any advise never tried the thing you are comparing it too and mines a Tele instead of a Strat although the differences are probably minimal.

The deluxe MIM is really just an MIM with some fancy bits.

Both the guitars feel the same, and should sound nearly the same providing you have the right pickups in there, however the highway one has the new electornics and the nitro finish, which are probably all about preference.

If your looking for a phenominal strat at that price range check out the Fender Showmaster. You can get one off the bay for $350-$400. I'll say its the best guitar I have ever played (I own one hence my user name). Check them out.
