Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
This is the Highway 1 "upgrade" released in late 2006. The first models, although already very good, were not hunanimité, even in dealers Fender who were not very competitive compared to some Mexican. The Fender Custom Shop has put his nose and the model has been redesigned, the pickups changed, namely:

- One head 70's, wide, which I find rather rare and successful brand.
- New colors nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
New-jumbo frets.
- 3 Alnico 3 (3 magnets), with middle pickup reverse polarity and winding to reduce the noise in position 2 and 4.
- Tone circuit "greasebucket" for neck and bridge pickups (the middle pickup has no tone control) to keep a certain tone with the brightness to zero.

For the rest, the bridge was "vintage" to 6 anchorage points with vibrato of the mark, so without risk.

The sunburst model presented here is really beautiful. For me being left handed I could enjoy that color with transparent wine rosewood fingerboard.

Note that this is the only model of the brand that can get left-handed at no additional cost. Thank you!
The varnish is very thin nitro particular: it has the advantage of leaving "sounding" the wood more easily and the disadvantage of being more fragile. 4 months since I have this guitar, I can say that this veneer is beautifully patina to points of friction, and donnnant interesting nuances and highlighting the wood grain under a beautiful cherry ripe! We may not like this polish. Appointment in 20 years ..... for a "relic !!???

Otherwise for the rest, quality manufacturing is well within the price range, nothing more, nothing less.

Remember that this is the Start of U.S. entry to 849 euros.

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple, as all Strat.Tous settings are possible, the strings do not curl. Just a small tendency to skid high E off the handle, but it can be used to my other guitar or failure of my game! Vibrato is easily solved. The handle is easy to play

SOUNDS

First used with an amp Peavey Bandit 112, a Crybaby 535Q, and Fulltone OCD overdrive.

I play blues, hardcore and prog.

Clean sound is really all sounds you expect from a Start: punch, brightness, chaleur.Aucun excessive background which proves that the microphones have been studied. And it's true that the circuit Greasebucket is surprising: one does not lose its bass and retains some gloss to the pitch to zero. One side "jazzy".

With distortion, with OCD and 3 super distorss of Peavey's really amazing for single-coil pickups: sisi can play metal with a Start and I must say that compared to my old Aria Humbuckers, this guitar is really "punchy" and racée.Une nice personality. It holds the road very well (normal for a Highway ...) and not be ashamed in the face of U.S. Strats range above.
The vibrato does not jump out of tune the strings (it's still not a Floyd Rose!) And remains an interesting asset in the game

In short, it was the sound of legend!

I now play with an amp SpiderValve Line 112. The sound of the guitar is of course transcended by the quality of this amp as well as clear sound that sounds (hyper) saturated. Fender has really put the package on its pickups and electronics: it's amazing fishing and ultimately very quiet for single coils.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 1 year and a half, I would do this choice. It's not a Fender U.S. at a discount, that's for sure! You can really have fun on this guitar. Output with a lot of pub by the mark, it deserves its success (it's rare that Fender gave a name to one of its models ...).
Now the choice is so vast in the mark (at least for the left) that everyone can find happiness.
Me, I wanted the Start sound, universal (a sound that can only love because it is found in all styles of music), without ruining myself, and I'm not disappointed.

A beautiful and good guitar please!

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
US guitar, 22 frets, Alnico pickups, 5 position selector (tiens!) wide head.
Mine is black and has a small effect in non shiny colori (not but I swear the zicos worse than chicks lol).
6 vintage bridge anchors, handle "C".
Fender Standard of what, with still a pleasant surprise for the bridge to 6 points (and the headstock but there are kids)

UTILIZATION

The handle? Me I have not found better, finally what I convienne.Je conçoie it could exist but I soulé vendors trying sleeve ....( hihihi)
The access is easy to acute, guitar balanced and not too heavy or light.
Nickels clean sounds (it's still his strong point).
Severe acute medium nickels.J 'likes the crunch when she put the knob to ten.
Good for a quick bad sound to be done on purpose.
Good for metal and other neo must go his way.
for the rest it is very versatile.

SOUNDS

Sounds? Nickel! There's something for all tastes.
Be used on a Marshall VS 100 is a sound ToneLab + (or both)
I love everything about her, so I wonder if my girlfriend is not jealous.
Good for blues, rock, it fits all styles. Unless another efois the trash or you buy good auttres mlais knowingly.

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using a an.J 'loves her, before I tried the Epiphone SG or ibanezs (not made for me).
It's true the price of the "myth" is high, but I quickly forgot my good lol.
When you let 600 and the evening is not what keeps you from sleeping is that it's okay.
Anyway, I'm more objective when it comes to my Start, but now I love it.
I have had better guitars markets and not be photos, the trick is that "custom" that I can not understand the enthusiasm of fenderiens.
One day I will buy a telecaster and a GL too.

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
Fender Highway One stratocaster (upgraded) made in United States.
22 Jumbo frets.
Channel C '
3 pickups Fender Hot Alnico Single-Coil Start with studs spaced
Master Volume, Tone 1 (neck pickup) with circuit Greasebucket *, Tone 2 (bridge pickup) with circuit Greasebucket (* removes treble frequencies without adding bass).
5-way switch, reverse polarity middle pickup on, Vintage Style Synchronized Tremolo, Fender Tuners / Ping Standard Oil bath, chrome hardware, 3-Ply pickguard plate Parchment, delivered in Deluxe Gig Bag, Yep ... the flycase c ' is too expensive for that price!

Well, after the description, venont the chatter on the scratching!
At first glance this stratum is very well finished, polished ultra-thin, easy to play (thank you jumbo frets), the body is quite light, I would say even a bit lighter than the strats "american standard Made in United States or other" me 2 strats that have 70's and 90's they weigh much more than this one highway is probably becaufe there is a layer of varnish, instead of 4 see 5 on US other models, but the grip however, is very pleasant.
The handle C 'typical of fender is a real treat for beginners and experienced.
You should know that the highway has a new one! easily recognized by its head late 60's early 70's much broader.
So ... you ask me, but how are home to sell us a Fender Stratocaster made in United States at less than 800 euros! ... And it's very simple, 90% of this skyscraper is the original United States The rest comes from factories abroad fender, giving the right to stamp the fender highway one of the Holy Grail "made in United States."
Everything that is mechanical, wiring, pick guard, and tremolo, are manufactured outside the United States, (cheaper) but the fender is hard or is that the materials are top quality! everything else (not least) is, Micros, wood (alder and maple) for violin, polished, fit and finish are from the US stocks and are fully directed, edited and adjusted in fender United States, this which gives an instrument of impeccable quality made in United States at low cost no frills! I see already the owners of Strata "american standard" that is beginning to get excited at the thought of paying nearly 35% more expensive to manufacture their mechanical etched fender and their four-layer coating made in United States ... Gasp ! (I did go!) But hey, it's 100% though ... United States ...
You still need somewhere to save the children!

UTILIZATION

What bothers me a bit in this whole story is that my two strats, and my les paul have magically found in the closet of this Diablotine returned to shop ... and I play with more I love it! and it costs half the price! looks like the other, nerd! ...
The handle is like a "highway" highway that speak English, it's slippery fast and smooth! Notes take the road without problem! jumbo frets are to compensate for possible "slippage"
I have a handle maple fingerboard (white) matter of preference, it can be rosewood (ie black).
Treble notes are easily accessible, it's still what makes a stratocaster is a stratocaster!
Ergonomics is the top, stratocaster ever! Weighing as I said a little light.
Place to demo his ...
I got on Marshall JCM900 tube to know what is a relic, but my head amp combined with its 4-cylinder Marshall cabinet that gives you a kick in the derch!
The acute type 100% clear fender are a real treat the first position and 5th position, there is no doubt it's a Start! crystal clear sound purists will enjoy at will! handle the microphone position is found warmer than usual for a stratum, and that's where it gets interresting for fans of the big round sound in saturated mode! and that's a big news! especially for a strat equipped with single coils! I know not what they put in their pesky microphones alnicos but the range of sounds is crazy, it goes all the big fat round his attack crunch clear saturated! while maintaining its 100% strat blues in normal mode, and that ladies and gentlemen, it's called VERSATILITY.

A micro bridge position that fart louder and more violently biting, it is also rather interested, thank you for thinking of fender our young people excited!
In short both in classic mode or saturated they know almost everything, the small flat have high saturations acute mode, it "frieze" a little, but nothing very serious, it is already so complete that many would villain to blame him for this small flaw ...
I sell all kinds of scratches and I can tell you that I was still bleuffé this new version of the highway one! the former being too bland for my taste.
Last little thing that is important! if you scratching your fully expressed it is important that it be accompanied with a good amp! there is no need to have a super scratch and play on a dung receiver who will eat all the sounds, it's like having a ferrari and you Rolling on gravel path! try the store on a super amp!
It always makes me laugh to see the guys change their microphones home believing that their guitars have no potatoes, no need to put seymour duncan and single or double coils of the 30 watts of poor manufacturing! the amp is as important as the guitar guys!

SOUNDS

My style of music varies, I like the big rock sound, AC / DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, old school yes, but I have over 20 years! and I can venture into sound bluesy, a strat bah so it made for that departing! ask Mr. Hendrix, Clapton or Knopfler!
My favorite amp is the JCM900 head of our English friends in Marshall!
The sounds of this little marvel are both crystalline fat, thou choize!
I would hate something about this skyscraper, but the store so I have that are "famous brands" at double the price of one, see triple that can not his ankle, which frankly would be inflated spit on the one!
You have to see over time if the violin holds up, I sold the one I and many guys they have never returned!
ah yes! one thing I can blame him! ha ha ha, and although the patent is much more fragile than the standard strats Quadruple layer ... but there are so many people who loves to see their old instruments as Kurt Cobain and Stevie Ray Vaughan that even that, it becomes an advantage! then ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use it every day! and when I do not use most is that I am out of stock! it is clear that the brand to Leo (Fender) made a full house and for good reason! the price at the qualitée always very well together!
It is very clear that if you are able to read my blabla up here that I would recommend this skyscraper, it's just not fun for others, but you still have stopped selling the expensive guitars that sound and less Well ... becaufe a big rock star with his portrait on the flycase ... right? fender and actually go! I assure you, I have no action in fender! word! even my friends "gibson fanatics" are on the ass! is to tell you ...
If you have 800 euros (you still have to put them!) And well go for it is very clear that it is better than the widely! Before our friends make us a fender comemorative and we increase the price to make a object of worship!

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
This is the Highway 1 "upgrade" released in late 2006. The first model, although dja trs good, were not the same hunanimit Fender resellers who were not from some Mexican COMPTITE. The Fender Custom Shop has put his nose and a t relook MODEL microphones changs, namely:

- 70 a head's off, I find pluttrussie and rare in the brand.
- New colors nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
New-jumbo frets.
- 3 Alnico 3 (3 magnets), with central micro polarity and winding inverss to reduce background noise in position 2 and 4.
- Tone Circuit "greasebucket" for neck and bridge pickups (the micro does not have central CONTRL of Tone to keep some shine with zero-Tone.

Otherwise, the bridge was "vintage" 6 anchors with vibrato of the brand, so without risk.

Submitted by The MODEL sunburst is really beautiful. For my part as I could bnficier left as the transparent color wine with rosewood fingerboard.

Note that MODEL is the only brand that can get by without left surcoat. Thank you!
The nitro lacquer trs end is very special: it has the advantage of leaving "sounding" the wood more easily and inconvnient of being more fragile. For four months I have this guitar, I can say that this varnish patina beautifully with points of friction, and donnnant INTERESTED nuances and highlighting the grain of wood in a beautiful cherry color much mre! We may not like this varnish. See you in 20 years ..... a "relic !!???

If not for the rest, the quality of manufacturing is well within the price range, nothing more, nothing less.

Remember that this is the Start of the range of U.S. 849 euros.

UTILIZATION

Operation is simple, as all the Strat.Tous rglages are possible, the strings do not curl. Just a small tendency to drape out of the middle needle stick, but it can be used to my other guitar or a default of my game! The vibrato is easy rgler. The handle is easy to play.

SOUNDS

Used with a Peavey Bandit 112 amp, Crybaby 535Q, and a Fulltone OCD overdrive one.

I play blues, hard and prog.

Its clear we really all sounds you expect from a Start: punch, brightness, chaleur.Aucun excessive background which proves that the microphones are well t tudis. And it is true that the circuit Greasebucket is surprising: one does not lose its bass and retains some gloss to the zero-Tone. Ct a "jazzy".

In its saturated with OCD and the three super distorss Peavey is really thundering for single coil pickups: sisi mtal can play with a Start and I must say that compared to my old Humbuckers Aria, this guitar is very "punchy" and race.Une beautiful personality. It holds the road well trs (bond, a Highway ...) and was not ashamed to face the U.S. Strats range above.
The vibrato dsaccorde do not rush the ropes and is an asset in the game INTERESTED

In short, it is the sound of legends!

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 4 months, I would do this choice. It's not a Fender U.S. on the cheap, for sure! You can really s'clater on this guitar. Output great fanfare by the brand advertising, it MRIT its success (it's rare that a Fender gives its name ...). MODELS
Now the choice is so vast in the mark (at least for the left) that everyone can find happiness.
I wanted a Start, universal (a sound that can only love because it is found in all styles of music), not to ruin me, and I'm not.

A beautiful and good guitar: Do not hesitate!

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
- Made in the USA
-22 Frets, micro 3 alnico single-coil Fender
Fender-vintage bridge
Slecteur 5-position, 1 volume knob, two buttons tonalitbr />-maple neck

UTILIZATION

The handle is trs enjoyable but it takes a while beginners getting used to, especially if it has at Gibson. Ergonomics is good, guitar push out the body shape. Only small default: a little heavy (well even when less than a Les Paul) after 2 hours of concert but with a strap drawback is a concern rgl!

SOUNDS

I think this guitar has a sound world quite varied and it is possible to play with any. The original pickups are not exceptional but they are enough. Although Obviously, the big mtal his style is not great but made good with pedals, did the trick. Personally, I replaced the bridge by MISCO Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails l. ...... and then it's a killer! You will redcouvrir your characters new strata saturated! My notes include change of micro, without change I would put 8

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for 3 years, it is when I started the guitar, and really I'm not on my investment. It is a good mid-range guitar (bought new 680), whose sound can be well amlior just by changing the micro because the violin is trs good for this price range. The report is qualitprix carrment excellent because it was a good strat U.S. for less than 800 wholesale. Premire C'tait my guitar but in the meantime I could play a SG with a friend and my Les Paul Classic achetercemment and I find that the Start and Les Paul is perfectly compltent . With exprience, I do it again this choice plutt twice that! INTERESTED purchase for a guitarist who wants a guitar relatively good prices

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
- So, for entry-level Fender made in the United States, 22 jumbo frets (sisi!), 3 simple bob 'Alnico III, 1 Vol / 2 Tone, standard vibrato, slcteur 5 positions, insert jack on the table, and small novelty head round 70's style, contour handle "C" ...
I selected version "button maple". In short it is a strat 'but finally (somewhat) recasts.

I will put on the equipment a good 9 aprceque there really all that needs to be or should be!

UTILIZATION

The handle ... It's really him that I DCID. I, the anti-de-strat-old that-all-the-world-is-a-the-same!
The really say anything: Hyper easy to play, too comfortable and "inspiring" in style "thumb derrire / lgato / sweep / dive bomb" that "thumb over / rock 'n roll / bend / vibrato / Keith Richards. "I had that same Discoveries can be enjoyable to play chords.
And I was not expecting it!

This may be of the new frets (damage their finish'm not on my copy MODL) o this beautiful maple affects both gross and sweet!?
I put 9 (it is impossible to be perfect in all styles

SOUNDS

So, scratch that perfectly fits all the styles that I approach.

I plugged into an Ashdown Fallen Angel 60W head with 4X12 cab attached.

I must say that I have a little boost by changing the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail trs that met many of the stringed guitar and a four-SSSL "quarter pound" (same mark) when the "rail" has fallen behind.
And since I wonder if I will return to rear! It pais, warm, nuanced ... Rgal in a distortion / drive.
Ditto for the other mics I have always believed that the simple bob 'silent central to the intervention between 2 pretty "real" pickups neck / bridge.
No way! Here it is quite incisive when pushed into a corner, with a roundness less runny than the neck pickup and a cutting edge less garish than the bridge. Excellent also for rhythmic clarity or to simulate a sound (well I say simulated!).
The neck pickup when he can find all the sounds "fenderiens" on positions 1 and 2 (starting from top) c'st say excellent in blues, funky dlicieusement or fat injection in fuzz .

In résumé of trs beautiful clear, but may be the original bridge that I find "fiddle" and nasal tlcaster limited low-end, the crunch and a bit phnomnaux short for large distos (requires simple) but give out the same changes qd for there enough wood for the "body"!
So because of the seven original bridge.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it intensively for the past eight months and it really fills my expectations. Ms when he pushes me of Pantera at your fingertips!
I love its versatility, the report "pro" sound well balanced and always about the comfort gnral.
It is exactly what I wanted: arrter with small MODELS good for 2 years and spend versatile srieux (exit jackson series Pacher / strat japan / Gretsch Electromatic duojet: the H1 and replaces all! )

Just a BMOL the finish: frets with "chrome" is dcolle (but there is still a bright layer below !??), few smudges of glue also at the hoop. APRS dfonces the opening of the body are well done even when the tears too ... But none of the pleasure to hinder / playability Especially for the price: 666 (!) roro on thomann.

I think I do it again this election if I break it!
Otherwise I will continue my arsenal complter: les paul / ibanez rg ...

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
Deja everything said above ...

only difference from the config 'home, mine is now equipped with a Fender Texas Special set. mine has a maple neck one piece.

point somewhat limited: the satin varnish, which may not please the beginning it can be done very well in very little time.

ATTENTION my note taking into account the new set of micro!

UTILIZATION

Channel C very pleasant
access to acute very good (I met my first concern last night by a bend in a tone box in 22nd, and again it goes at home ...)

SOUNDS

So then ... What about sound level ... bin it is a stratum of good quality which gives us a very slamming his (one piece maple neck forces) in which acute deviend very round and bluesy as hell when you put on the handle ... medium position? medium, a compromise between these two positions. I used relatively few positions 2 and 4 that I found little interest from a real guitar with a double but the use has shown that they, too, very interesting colors (Little Wing??! ?) ....

ATTENTION my note taking into account the new set of micro!

OVERALL OPINION

Use for 4 months, a guitar that fits perfectly a style I like. she does not know everything, but what it does, it does very well ...

acquisition of a lightning strike during my blues, fatal to the portfolio

quality / price ratio monster (thank you king of the magical plan) 550 € with the new pickups ...

Without hesitation, I redeem the same if I had not already!!

Fender Highway One Stratocaster [2006-2011]
- Made in USA
-22 Frets, micro 3 alnico single-coil Fender
Fender-vintage bridge (classic, what)
5-position switch, 1 volume knob, 2 tone controls
Rosewood-handle

UTILIZATION

The neck is nice and access to acute is very easy for that kind of scratch ... Its ergonomics are not bad at all
(A bit heavy though).
With a fusion of fact and distos echoes we get a great sound (obviously the pickups are not good)

SOUNDS

It is suitable for all styles of music except metal. I'm playing right now on a pedal and a marshall AS50D Zoom and guitar
sounds rather bien.Avec some settings this strat not sound bad.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three months and I love it! I like its shape, color and sound.
I tried an Ibanez and Mexico Standard Start ... nothing comes close to him (personal opinion)
(After to change the pickups but hey ...)
Yes, with the experience I remake this choice
