FENDER HIGHWAY ONE 1 USA Nashville TELECASTER 2006 Black / Rosewood Tele 65065
This is a 2006-07 Fender Highway One Telecaster made in USA in black finish. It has a Strat-style pickup in the middle position just like a Nashville Tele. I assumed this was a mod by a previous owner, but when you look at the routing on the body (see pics), it's looks like factory work. So either someone did a really good job, or this was a one-off Highway One Tele. It has only a 3-way switch, but the Tone knob pulls out and thus gives you nearly all the same pickup combinations you get with a Nashville. Depending on if the knob is pushed/pulled, your options are: Switch Forward--Neck PU or Neck + Mid; Switch Middle--Mid + Bridge or Bridge only; and Switch Back--Mid + Bridge or Bridge only.
It should be noted that though the middle and rear switch positions offer the same pickup combinations, they provide four different sounds. So it may be an in-phase/out-of-phase thing or series/parallel difference. Bottom line you get a total of six different sounds for your pallette. This has a matte black nitro finish in good shape with a couple small marks only. Vintage ashtray bridge with 3 barrel saddles and a maple neck with rosewood fretboard. Neck is C-shaped with 9.5" radius and jumbo frets. Frets are very good with only some minimal flattening and very mild grooves on first three frets. Guitar plays great with no issues. It's a one of a kind Tele. No case. Weight is 7 pounds, 7 ounces. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks for looking!

All setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.
