This guitar was purchased at Long and Mcquade in calgary for 829.00 canadian dollars.

The setup was perfect, the neck is smooth, silky and well made. the blue saphire finish looks great. The guitar stays in tune very well even with moderate to heavy tremolo use. the guitar sounds great througha tube amp.

can't really find any dislikes. the pickups could have soem extra winds in them to make them hotter and warmer. but you still get vintage tones through a nive old fender tube amp.

flawless. however, it took me a few hours to find the right fit. i always go for feel rather than looks. not all the guitars feel the same, so you have to be meticulous and dilligent to find the right fit for you.

i have many guitars (including a 1955 fender stratocaster which i have now retired). i'm very impressed that fender coudl make a no frills finish guitar and make a high quality instrument. i may even pick up the highway 1 telecaster now.
