Fender Highway One Stratocaster HSS [2006-2011]
This guitar is made to look like a 70s modded strat. With its big headstock and natural finish, these are all 70s things and the humbucker in the bridge was a very common mod at the time. With this strat you get an alder body. A bolt on maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. The neck has a modern C profile to it and the fretboard has a 9.5 inch radius to it. The neck has 22 Jumbo frets. Up top you get 6 nonlocking tuners on the big 70s style headstock. There is a non locking tremolo bridge down at the bottom. The pickups are in an HSS configuration with an "Atomic" humbucker in the bridge with 2 hot single coils in the neck and middle. The finish is a thin coat of nitro over the natural wood to give you a cool look with a vintage feel.

UTILIZATION

This strat has a really nice feel to it because of the neck. It feels not unlike the custom shop models they put out that come with huge frets. This guitar having jumbo frets and a 9.5 inch radius mean you can really get a low action and really bend notes forever. The rest of the guitar feels pretty stratty. The nitro finish is a bit sticky at first but this goes away with playing. The neck bolt is big and gets in the way on the high frets. The guitar will go out of tune if you use the tremolo a lot.

SOUNDS

HSS strats still sound like strats but with more beef in the 1 position. The switching is typical 5 way switch with just a humbucker in the bridge. Position 1 you get the full on humbucker. This humbucker is pretty hot but it is not metal hot. It does not completely over power the single coils. It complements them well. It is more suitable for high gain tones than the single coils. It is a bit smoother sounding overall and has more thickness to it. You still get the bell like tones from the single coils in the middle and the neck. You can get that ringing single coil sound from the neck position. That kinda smooth but kind of bitey single coil sound. When you combine the bridge humbucker with the middle single coil you get a cool tone that kind of reminds me of a P90 with the single coil clarity up top with the smoothness and bottom end of the humbucker.

OVERALL OPINION

This is one of my favorite strats that Fender has put out recently. I love the big headstock look. Some people say they make the guitar sound better, I just think it looks cool. The original strat was supposed to have a big headstock like this but they made it smaller to cut costs. The jumbo frets make up for the reletively round radius of the fretboards. Coming from Gibsons and super strats with radiuses higher than 14 inches a 9 inch radius is pretty round but when you put big frets on it you get some of the modern feel back. If you are looking for a nice HSS strat that plays really well and looks pretty vintage the Highway 1 is a good choice.

Fender Highway One Stratocaster HSS [2006-2011]
Stratocaster HSS pickups made in US - black (varnish weak + +)

UTILIZATION

extremment handle easy and pleasant (idel for beginners) - good ergonomic sitting or standing - Access in acute ok - trs bearable weight

SOUNDS

with 6 months back I would say that the flexibility has its limits, the neck pickup is too quiet, the medium is the one I use most and has a humbucker output level too contrast to the other two, in the meantime I pass on a body which is more hommow my DSIR (blues, rockabilly) - I play on an amp fender hot rod deluxe in gnral in clean or crunch lightweight

OVERALL OPINION

First guitar buy, no regrets for the first 3 months (ease of the handle, Discoveries sounds), what I like most is the ease of play (the limit too easy) This I like least is the raw sound that I draw, it is necessary to effect a derrire that sounds a bit better (I'm still trsdbutant) - Q report / P means but volute guitar (pickups + + +) - with the exprience I orient myself to my taste to the hollow body

Fender Highway One Stratocaster HSS [2006-2011]
In appearance, it has all of us stat: The shape and the Fender on the head.
For the rest of the body is alder, the Bolt in Maple / rosewood fingerboard, pickups and Fender Hot Alnico Start Single-Coil, etc ...
Additionally with the colorful Flat Black qie I, it is ... sublime.

Assets:
- It's probably in my opinion the humbucker bridge, which allows sound to pass a classic strat big sound almost Gibsonian.
- The very affordable price for small budgets who want to play on a real Fender stat
Cons:
- I understand the HSS Highway1 just have layers of paint and painted in less vibrato and a low-end. But is that really his ca altre??


UTILIZATION

- Handle very enjoyable, nothing to say. It is a pleasure to play it.
- Access to Acute easy form Stat forces, but not as planks on my Ibanez I've been around longer. I just regret that lack does not go up 24cases.
- The weight when it has nickel, as we do not post the body below the belt! hhhbr /> - I had a good time benda very intensive use of vibrato, the strings do not move quasiement. THANK YOU to the standard mechanical oil bath at Fender that take the blow much. In dernires new ca go out of tune a bit, but I would opt more on that are fatigus come away from my heavy hand on the stem of the vibrato (may be too used to the floyd rose).
- The sound is good overall, but the bulk BMOL I would put is that for some time, the handle poorly rgl the factory has made his own, and m ' is impossible to make bens between the 14th and the 19th case of high E. An annoying when you want to be soloing like Gilmour ^ ^. In short, I do not know if it has SPECIFICATIONS my guitar, or all Hss stat, but the problem is so I'm waiting for sanctions to have the funds to go to a luthier .

SOUNDS

The sound is what I wanted to have simple fender history of microphones can do funky rhythms continue with its clear and large agreements on double coils.

It's a versatile guitar trs, as well as the stat 100th Birthday of Fender cousin. In any case it seems more versatile than the stat was my first custom shop. Depending on the positioning of the microphones, it is boards of playing rock - blues - funk - Surf Guitar - a little metal. Yes, on this last point, we feel even when the limit of the double coils, can be too fatty for my taste, but below trs in my opinion of what are many fender with their 3 single coils .

OVERALL OPINION

I've had a little over six months, I was very satisfied notement live and recording, until the problem occurs to me on the bens high E string.

I t J'espre unlucky for my boxes, but in the end, so I took six months of fun with it that I leave all of the same high marks. And if it again, I think certainly I rachaiterais the same! For 760 Thomann, ca is squarely blow for those who want versatility.

Georgy.Concreters's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Highway One Stratocaster HSS [2006-2011]
This is a Fender Stratocaster Highway One

So it's a amricaine HSS (humbucker, single-coil, single-coil)
- 22 Jumbo frets (great for hard rock and more)

- The Alnico pickups.

- A button in Rabl (always better for a humbucker)
Alder body

- A head shape 70ies

- A volume gnral
2 contrl in shade "Greasebucket" (one for the neck pickup, one for the humbucker)

- Fender Standard cast of: Mechanical

- A bridge called 'vintage' (standard 3 springs)

- A painted Nitro (very late) but it is prvenu and it is in the price

cover is included.

Besides the bridge, pickups and polished, it's a real amricaine!

I forgot ... The price is also much cheaper!

UTILIZATION

The C handle me it seems, very easy to acute CASC is a Start ... Very aisbr />
The painted 'Nitro' does not stick.

Obviously a strat remains a stratum, has everything to play Manir comfortable ...
It yammer on recess for the belly!
Well-sr, the head does not itch, it remains the or she is quite a weight Lger.

The sound is that of a real Start, more bright (even with the humbucker), his guitar sound, everything is put on a good amp.

SOUNDS

I play Heavy rock is perfect. I wanted a humbucker both bold and clear, so I chose this guitar for its clear, a TubeScreamer for its fat, and a Marshall lamps to fortify all ...

The pickups are average, it also has my prfr Highway One, because CHRE less and less hesitating so we move inside ...

I found the single-coil too feeble my taste, and did not make enough Humbucker harmonics so I changed for Seymour Duncan and Burstbucker, I also changed the pickups on an American std, so I'm happy of the result and compared to models multimdia I find more intressant.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6months is a stratum, it is very easy and accessible thanks to rock humbucker sound. I tried Gibson (which I find too heavy for her), Duesenberg (unbranded sound recognizable, yet Dumoine) Gretsch (very good sound, very expensive too) and Fender ...

The report qualitprix is ​​excellent, a guitar for people who either have a small budget, but they have all the same amricaine afford (Gibson Les Paul Std recall that it 2000euros ) or people who really want to work on their guitar, modify it to obtain what they want.

So I do it again this election, the lack of patent is not draga (fingers less marked, the flat black and very pretty, does not stick and then to deteriorate faster! And has , has pro! hh)

So it is not mistaken when achte this guitar, you should know a few tricks (varnish, etc.) and try it but I have no way of t, then I will ever be without this choice h line shells!
