Fender Higway1 SunBurst : theaudioandvideoguy's user review
The Fender Highway One is an excellent bass. It has the feel to it that every single bass player would love and I mean every bass player! It comes in a 3 color tone. I actually think that the one pictured in this review is just one of the color styles. There is a lighter colored one as well that a friend of mine has been using for quite some time now and I can only say that it looks great.
The Fender Highway One has 2 hot single coil pickups, and a vintage style 3 saddle strings with thru body Tele Bridge. All of the hardware on the Fender Highway One is a very nice and shiney/stylish chrome. I am a chrome lover so I could be a little more bias on this bass. It is very easy for you to get a nice sound with this and getting to the top notes/ frets are a breeze. An as I said before the guitar has a very even weight to it. Not too heavy, and not light enough that it feels cheap. It is just perfect!
The Fender Highway One was built on the classic Telecaster design. When you purchase this guitar new it will come with a great warranty from Fender that will cover almost anything. You will definitely need to have the warrenty because you never know what can happen. But overall, it sounds great!
You can get the Fender Highway One for about 730 dollars brand new, so I image that its cheaper used. But it should be bought knew, I wouldn’t want to get it used. The Highway one is mainly used for Jazz, but can be extended to several different genre’s of music and still sound and perform great. It will look good around your neck and in your hands. It will sound good coming through almost any half way decent amp.
