what do you guys think about these guitars. i want a standard but im wondering how much worse they are? Like is it just the durability, because it has better parts and a better finish, or does it really play differently.

t really really like the standard telecaster with the maple neck. i think it plays great, and it does have higher quality parts over the mim. i dig the finish a lot, especially on the sunburst. i really think it is a great way to upgrade over the mexican but not spend a ton of money.

Highway ones are made in USA, i would get it. I love this series, the finish is great, so is the neck.
