I wanted to buy a guitar which was versatile, good enough to keep for a lifetime, reliable and looked great. So I asked my guitar teacher what would be my best option? He said that there was a highway 1 strat on sale in Russel's music store in Cork city (Ireland) for 939 euro. I know that is a high price for a highway 1 but everything in Ireland is really expensive anyway. That was actually a reasonable price because another music shop was selling the exact same guitar for 1000 euro.

This guitar has everything I need. The 5 tones I have with the pickup selector switch is great! I can play anything from the likes of Chuck Berry to Ynguie Malmsteen.
When I got it first I was disappointed with the tremolo because the G string kept going out of tune. But to my delight I carefully put a small amount of oil on the nut and the strings now stay in tune with even the most stupidly outrageous whammy bar abuse!!

Only the fact that it cost so much. But it should be a lot cheaper if you dont live in Ireland.

Its a Fender strat made in U.S.A. Enough said!

This is a guitar which would suit anyone. It looks great, sounds great and feels even better to play. I would recommend it to any guitarist because it is so versiatile and such fun to play.
