Ok, I made the plunge.  I’ve been hankerin’ to get me a new axe for the last few months.  I’ve been going into stores and playing every guitar I saw.  I’ve been watching for deals and checking Craig’s List daily to see who might be willing to part with that special guitar.  Well, today, I said, “enough is enough” and bought myself a Fender Highway One Telecaster.  Awesome tone and an awsome look that’ll only improve as I use it.  It has a thin finish that’s designed to wear easily so it should get that broken in look real soon.   Here’s the specs…

  • Alder body (Satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish)
  • Maple modern C-shaped neck (Satin polyurethane finish)
  • 9.5″ fretboard radius
  • 22 jumbo frets
  • ’70s styling
  • Greasebucket tone circuit
  • Upgraded hot alnico 3 single-coil pickups voiced for more modern distortion-friendly tones
  • When I get a few more miles on it I’ll come back to write a more thorough review.  At this point I’m still breaking her in.
