OVERVIEW

Authentic U.S. craftsmanship and quality control for an unbelievable price!

The awesome neck on the Fender Highway One Telecaster is lightning fast. Fender has stripped down their American Tele, applied a lighter finish, and gone back to a vintage fretboard, neck joint, and 3-saddle bridge to give you true American quality for a lot less. Genuine alder body with rosewood or maple fretboard, and unmistakable Fender tone from an American Special pickup at the bridge with staggered pole pieces and alnico magnets. Medium-jumbo frets, a 3-ply black-white-black pickguard, and gorgeous satin finishes make the Highway One Telecaster sweet to play and sweeter to look at. Fender includes a deluxe gig bag with your Highway One.

FEATURES
  • Alder body with classic Fender specs
  • Rosewood or maple fretboard
  • Single-coil pickups with staggered pole pieces on the bridge pickup and alnico magnets
  • Traditional 3-saddle bridge
  • Medium-jumbo frets
  • High-precision neck joint
  • 3-ply black-white-black pickguard
  • Gorgeous satin finish

Take the Highway

By Sonny-EIHDQ

from Crystal Lake, IL

See all my reviews

This guitar is fantastic. I was searching for a strat or tele at Guitar Center and I played this one. I loved the overall feel of it. The sound was GREAT too. I also played the American Strat. I did like the strat a bit better but man, this tele is NOT close behind at all. The tele was quite cheaper, which led me to want it. I can not get over this guitar, the sunburst is GORGEOUS! Doesn't get too much better than this.

Awesome Telecaster

By Homestar

from Toledo, OH

This guitar is great. The finish on the sunburst model is awesome and it does not wear down easily. The sound is great. I have compared this to a deluxe American Telecaster and the sounds and tones are almost identical. This is a great guitar for its pricepoint and I love it very much.

good stuff

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

this is the exact same guitar as the telecaster american that is more expensive. there are two differences 1) this one doesn't have a glossy finish like the other, and 2) this one is less money. i played both of them they sound the same and i like it better without the gloss anyway, it looks like it's been used :)

Can't put it down!!

By Rick-InFzb

from NH

I've been playing for 40+ years. I've owned them all. Lately been into acoustic. Decided to get back into the electric. Spent a lot of time at the music store. This is a great guitar. Looks good, feels good and sounds good. I played three of them and they were all good guitars. The setup from the factory is not perfect, but for those unsure the owners manual comes in very handy. For the money, it would be very hard to beat this guitar in my opinion. I own the sunburst one... Looks great. If I were to change anything, I might look into a hotter pickup for the neck position. Buy it you will Love it...Can't put it down!!

Nice guitar for the price

By Zeewilly

This is an awesome guitar for almost half the price of the other U.S.-made telecasters from Fender's shop in Corona, CA. The alder body and satin finish make it feel a lot lighter in weight than other teles, otherwise, it's got that same classic twangy tele sound and tone from two vintage single-coil pickups. I love the slim, satin neck that makes this guitar so easy to play up the scale. The fit and finish on my red Highway 1 tele are flawless. One more thing, this axe never goes out of tune, no matter how much string bending I do!

best guitar you can get, a very smart investment

By luisb

from Miami, FL

See all my reviews

The vintage look, the satin finish, the sound and the price makes this guitar a dream come true. The best american telecaster you can get for that kind of money. The only thing you must remember is that the satin finish requires greater care that normal finish (i.e. slight scratches, fingerprints, dirt spots), but it is worth it!

The best Tele!

By Gary T.

from Altus, Oklahoma

I have owned several USA Telecasters from the 70's, 80's, and 90's, and the "Highway 1" is the best sounding one yet! Just play one unplugged and you will see how the sound jump's out of it! Plug it in and it has a lot of sustain and ring to it. The only thing I wish it had is the straplock buttons like on the American standard. But that's no big deal, For the money you cant beat it!

Brilliant!

By Opie-cNG1L

This guitar is simply amazing. I bought mine a couple of months ago and I have loved te ever since. This guitar will not let you down. It is American quality at a very affordable price. The finish isn't the greatest, but the sound is excellent, and that's what is the most important.

For the money...WOW

By Hooray

from Eugene, OR

I purchased this guitar about 6 months ago, and I am finally ready to say...it is awesome. The tone is phenomenal, in fact the delta pups sound comparable to the american standard. One very nice thing is the guitar is very light compared to other fenders, but be careful with it for that reason...(not a very heavy finish) the only complaint I have is I don't like the vintage brige system, and will be upgrading the saddles on mine soon because the stock saddles act like a cheese-grater on your hand if you palm mute at all.

Nice comfortable guitar, great tone!

By Zeewilly

from Massachusetts

See all my reviews

This is a great guitar! Light weight, with a smooth feel and easy-to-play slim neck with big frets. I can rip through chords quickly and effortlessly on this guitar, and no matter how much string bending I do, it just doesn't go outta tune! Quality craftmanship too, even if it is a little pricey, it is American-made. I'd recommend it to any one who is looking for that classic twangy, clear Fender sound. Also has a nice edgy growl in overdrive, but I would not recommend this ax for heavy metal.

New Tele sounds great!

By Guitar Collector & Player

from Chicago

I wanted to replace my 52 re-issue that I sold last summer and didn't have enough cash for another 52. My local expert, Mike, suggested the Highway 1 Series Tele. The results are excellent! Plays very nice, sounds great... finish is better than expected... I just don't like the strings that come with it!
