Check out Jim in the Fender video.  He’s primarily there to help promote the Fender G-DEC3 Thirty Amp which will play backing tracks.  I’m not so much interested in that as I’m watching Jim and picking up some licks and tips.  Of course, another cool thing is that Jim is all about the Fender Telecaster!

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.
