Fender: Highway 1 Stratocaster

Price paid: $ 600

Sound — 6
The sound is good for blues type music which I play. Not good for the louder roaring sounds. Has some feedback but is not so noticable. It can play sounds muffled and clear.

Overall Impression — 8
This guitar caught my eye because of its reasonable price for an american made Stratocaster. It has good action and sound. I have been playing for about 15 years. If this guitar gets lost I will probably buy a new one or save some money for a Clapton series.

Reliability & Durability — 8
This guitar can definetley be played live. This guitar will probably last a long time which is good for it's price. Finish is thin and may wear off easily in time.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Good quality and worksmanship.

Features — 8
Good worksmanship and US made quality. It has smooth satin finish, a 5-way tone selection, and 3 single staggered pickups with Alnico magnets. Comes with gigbag.
