Fender 2006 Highway One Stratocaster NITRO Noiseless American USA Strat 32332
This is a 2006 (60th Anniversary) USA made Fender Highway One Stratocaster in Blonde finish. Just an amazing looking guitar, even better with the tortoise pickguard, which is not factory. Also huge upgrade to Fender Noiseless pickups. These guitars get a thin nitro finish at the factory designed to show wear and relic quickly AND let your tone come through.
Modern C-shaped neck, rosewood fretboard, and big jumbo frets. Soft satin finish on back of neck. Large 70s-style headstock. This one has some cool mild playing wear that generally serves to add to the road worn character. Frets are in good shape with some mild wear from normal playing. Neck plate upgraded to "F" plate. The Highway 1 quality and style is a recognized thing now, and they often sell for more than standard USA models of the same period. No tremolo bar or case. Weight is 7 pounds, 8 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars, but you may need a setup from your luthier to your own preferences. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.

The Highway One models are hot-rodded versions of a '70s-style Strat with jumbo frets, a rounder tone and higher gain, as well as a thin-coated nitrocellulose body which allows the tone of the wood to come out. Two configurations are available:
The Highway One Stratocaster (also available left-handed) which features the standard Stratocaster pickup configuration of three single-coil pickups and the Highway One Stratocaster HSS - which features one humbucker and two single coil pickup.
Highway One Stratocaster:
Modern "C"-shape neck 9-1/2" maple or rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets
Maple neck with satin urethane finish '70s-style large headstock with a black logo
Standard sealed/cast tuners Alder body with a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that lets you see the quality of the wood and workmanship.
The neck has the renowned Fender fit and finish that makes it comfortable to play for hours and easy to get around the fingerboard at the highest frets.
Fender Hot Single-Coil Strat Bridge, Middle and Neck pickups with Alnico 3 magnets. The middle position pickup is reverse-wound/reverse-polarity. 5-way selector switch paired with Fender's Greasebucket Tone Circuit (which rolls off the highs without adding bass) with controls for Master Volume, Tone 1 for the neck pickup , and Tone 2 for the bridge pickup.
Vintage-Style Synchronized tremolo bridge 3-ply parchment plastic pickguard and parchment plastic control knobs complete the package.
Highway One Stratocaster HSS:
The Highway One Stratocaster HSS has the same primary features and electronics as the Highway One Stratocaster, but also includes:
Fender Atomic Hot Humbucking bridge pickup for heavy-duty tones along with the Hot Single-Coil Strat Middle and Neck pickups.
This model is available with a rosewood fingerboard only.
Although the Highway One Series does not have the S1 switching circuit of more expensive models, the hot rodded electronics of the Highway One makes it a great sounding instrument with noticeable improvements over some of the 70's models you hear in some of the great rock recordings of the past.
