FENDER HIGHWAY ONE 1 Stratocaster SSS USA Nitro American BLUE STRAT RELIC 20213


Regular price $799
This is a 2002 USA made Fender Highway One Stratocaster in blue finish. Great cosmetic and playing condition (see all pics below). These get a thin nitro finish at the factory designed to show wear and relic quickly AND let your tone come through. These come outfitted with overwound Alnico 3 pickups and a "Greasebucket" tone circuit for great tone. Middle pickup is reverse wound to lessen hum. Modern C-shaped neck and medium jumbo frets that are in very good shape. Soft satin finish on back of neck. Minor playing wear looks cool, kind of a light relic. Early Hwy 1 models like this are prized for having the best craftsmanship. Guitarists have realized the Highway 1 quality and they often sell for more than standard USA models of the same period. No tremolo bar or case. Weight is 7 pounds, 3 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking.
