The Highway One Stratocaster HSS pays homage to guitarists who emerged in the ’80s as hobbyist luthiers—adding aftermarket appointments like black bobbin humbucking pickups and DIY finishes. Two single-coil pickups with Alnico magnets and staggered pole pieces are coupled with a Fender Atomic II humbucker for amazing sonic versatility. Other features include a resonant alder body with a light satin-lacquer finish, large headstock, one-piece maple neck with 22 medium-jumbo frets, and synchronized tremolo.

this is the best guitar in the world. Ive been playing my highway 1 for a number of years now. It has that classic strat sound you hear when you listen to Stevie Ray or Jimi. I love this guitar. Dare I say, its pretty much my best friend.

It is very versatile, can play lots of styles with it. And it sounds great! I use it with a Line 6 Spider, more choices at hand!
