The Fender Stratocaster highway one guitar is a greatly priced American-built Fender guitar. I was surprised to see how low and competitive the price of this guitar is especially being American-made guitar. At new you can find these guitars for little over $700 which is an exceptional price for an American made Fender Stratocaster guitar. I'm not exactly sure why it is that these are about 400 or $500 less than a lot of their other fender Stratocaster guitars because they have such a great feeling a great tone overall.

These guitars feature in alder body with a maple neck. You have 22 jumbo frets and a 25 inch scale length neck. Most of the hardware is chrome which sets the guitars look off very nicely. I also like the larger headstock which is a very vintage look to this guitar.

The tone of this is an exceptional tone and can be used in any guitar amplification and setting. Whether you use a clean and with a overdrive pedal in front of it or you're using a high gain amplifier with no pedals this is a great guitar for pretty much any genre of music in any amplifier that you use. It is a great look with its red paint job body and it's white guard and maple neck. Overall it's a beautiful guitar and a price that is just amazing.

I was like listening to a Fender Stratocaster on the neck pick up because I have a great bluesy tone and gives the voicing of a Fender Stratocaster in all of its glory. It's a very versatile guitar and can be used in pretty much any style of music imaginable. The alder wood is my favorite wood in that strat body style as well as the maple neck. So overall this just a great guitar and a great price especially for my needs.


You can find these guitars right around $730 in the new market which is a great price for an American made guitar. It's a fun guitar and one of the best and most versatile and iconic guitar that is ever been produced. Highly recommend every guitar player looking to get one of the most versatile guitars for recording or digging. This is an awesome guitar and for the price you can't really beat that.
