Audiofanzine FR's review

Fender Highway One Telecaster [2006-2011]
(Originally written by coolzapp/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
Made in the USA.

22 frets

Two Alnico III single-coil pickups

3-saddle vintage bridge

3-way toggle switch

Volume control

Tone control

Maple neck

UTILIZATION

Not too thick, very pleasant and easily playable neck ^^ Easy access to the upper frets. Quite light and very ergonomic (both sitting and standing =)

SOUNDS

The sound is the main asset of this guitar! It's amazing! Real typical Telecaster sound. I had the opportunity to try out more expensive Telecasters like the American standard and I didn't notice a huge difference! This guitar perfectly matches my needs. It's very versatile. I get a super sound with my Marshall MG 50 DFX. The clean sound is wonderful, the bridge pickup sounds twangy and the neck pickup warm! I love its sound with distortion. With the adequate settings you can play anything you want =) I play a lot of Bon Jovi stuff and the sound is terrific!

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for several months. I love its typical Telecaster sound, which is on the same level as its bigger sisters! I previously tested other Fender, Gibson, Ibanez guitars. But I fell in love with this one =D. The value for money is unbeatable for a guitar made in the USA! I'm sure I would buy it again! I took my time choosing a guitar fitting my needs. I tried out many models and this one was my favorite for its quality and looks. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good Telecaster at an affordable price. It's a killer guitar =) I give it 9/10 because nothing is perfect =P

Fender Highway One Telecaster [2006-2011]
Manufacturing in the U.S. by Mexican irregular (just kidding)!

UTILIZATION

I find really pleasant handle better than my telecaster made in japan and
much more ergonomic than a Gibson LP.
Question finish, next to a Baja, it's ugly.
Personally, I find the nitro ugly painting. But this is also why I chose it because it was not wrapped in a shell of modern painting, I think it sounds better (sustain).
Question position is neck pickup or pickup or both tone and volume, period!
As a true what!

SOUNDS

I think this guitar has its grain good at it ... I play on a classic 30.
I think it sounds better than a Mexican baja,
but it is subjective évidement.Comment explain?
She has a sharp sound. I've never played in a group with, but I'm sure it goes through everything.
Its weak point for me: the bridge pickup produces a little too sharp, but it certainly is what also makes the guitar sound when both pickups together and contrary to other reviews, I think this guitar can do everything (or almost), and I'm curious to stick a hambucker ass.
This is a guitar that will not forgive the wrong notes, but will also highlight your game in an exemplary manner. Baja sounds good, but has a more modern sound neutral, or I'd go anywhere.
I would like to make the comparison between the highway and a AM Standard. In my opinion, the standard must have one side more "Twang" anyway ... to see.

OVERALL OPINION

Frankly, I passed directly to the point of neglecting my stratocaster better bill.
This is a nice guitar that is worth more than 400 euros I gave.
Now this does not mean wagon, I may have fallen on a good guitar?? Go figure.

sorgen :shoot:'s review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Highway One Telecaster [2006-2011]
Made between Mexico and the United States, the telecaster is fairly standard in these characteristic (alder body, Alnico vintage rosewood fingerboard on mine)
Single detail, matte varnish, not very thick but I really enjoy this style ... anyway he went fast enough on the areas where we have regular contact.
Channel 22 breaks, mechanical Fender, two knobs (Vol + Tone) and a 3 position selector switch for the microphones.

10 for the varnish, I love ...

UTILIZATION

The handle has a profile "modern" nothing to do with the reissue of 52 'for example ... Very comfortable.
Access to the top is not sharp ... Fender is still not clear we are not required to have a heel while SQUARE! unless they have the technology to arrondire a bit ... Finally ...
The guitar is light and well proporsionnée.
The sound ... it just gets a jack and an amp with lamps ... beautiful ...

SOUNDS

I bought this scratch to rock the Pixies, Radiohead and many other groups in the same vein ...
I play with the scratching of a preamp RED CORNER-made and Poweramp ENGL

I tried to be hyper rhythmic slap in the crunch (and there with a small DOD OD250 is nickel).
Acute position, slamming the mics is super clean in ... eyes closed we recognize the TV.
In crunch, fuzz or OD ... beautiful ... a dynamic game really unparalleled ... by ca rest against microphones simple ... we did not gain high ... but with EMGs, it was not that dynamic ...

The intermediate position can be hyper crystalline cleans a little style Start ... it is the only use I did.

The neck position is very warm, the sound is smooth and dynamic (particularly word characterizing the instrument as a whole), we have round cleans and warm as I like them ... the bluesy crunch to wish ...

OVERALL OPINION

I've had two months.
The guitar to violin quality for its price and the microphones are also very great job even though this is mere Fender Vintage Alnico ... he can be criticized its varnish ... I like it ... it should quickly have a look "vintage".
I compared it with others including a Fender 52 'reissue japanese series and classic 60' Mexican ... So the guitars are all in the same price range.
For € 800, it's really a good guitar is heard even here and there that are not good Telecasters ... Tried here to make your own opinion.

I would do without hesitation that choice

Fender Highway One Telecaster [2006-2011]
US-made "to the economy." Less time spent on the varnish, consuming labor! The varnish is microcellulose: it is supposed to let the wood breathe, at least more than usual varnishes fender.
22 jumbo frets
Vintage bridge
Micro are alnico, the neck pickup can not adjust the height without removing the pickguard.
The rest of the TV classic.

UTILIZATION

After comparison with Ash and a custom lite Mex .... without hesitation the handle of the Highway One is a great comfort.
The jumbo frets make it easy to bend, it takes a little getting used to the slides. The access is easy to acute.
It is not particularly heavy but tends to bite the head, which can cause tension in the left arm over time. But hey if it can catch up the muscles!
The overall comfort is good.

SOUNDS

I bought a game more than my body fusion jazz, I'm ready!
Tried several times before purchase of tube amps.
The clean sounds are beautiful.
The neck pickup is known to be round, the tele bridge pickup is typical for me with a little something extra compared to other tele tried.
It sounds really good vacuum.
Beautiful sounds in crunch.
I play at home with a Hughes & Ketner 50 W which has the merit of not coloring the sound. So my zoom pedal can find just about the sounds you want.
Great for the funk too.
Saturation going very well on the bridge pickup, the TV is rock (of course) but even hard metal (note I did not compare with Ibanez and consors for me but here goes).

You will not sound bold, the microphones are relatively clear and well defined.
I have not yet found a good use of the tone knob.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a month.
I love the playability, the neck, simplicity telecaster.
I chose to have something different in my body jazz, better than the copy of strata (really bad) of my daughters. I tried the Fender Stratocaster (60th Anniversary ...), a Godin G1000 (old copy of Start ... very good), a Godin Exit 22 (excellent), Jetking Ibanez, Ibanez SZ520, Lag Roxanne 200. When I got my hands on that telecaster I knew it was her. Later I confirmed my choice by trying two more times with a secondhand (I'll talk about it) by comparing with two other tele (see above) ... and voila! I fell in love.

Warning: the highway one tele-hand I tried was red, had a year, and the varnish was gone to the places of contact (right forearm and above the strings). The varnish is very fragile. That's why I took Honey Blonde. If the varnish from the wood will be visible in much the same color!

Conclusion: it is a purchase favorite, can not you will not feel the same desire for tele highway .... try anyway.

I do not give the maximum score for a better tele is probably beyond my reach ... somewhere!
