Original owner lightweight Fender Highway One USA telecaster in thin skin sunburst nitro from the 60th anniversary collection. Upgraded by me with official Fender Pearloid pickguard, with original 3-ply white-black-white in the case.
In response to market demand, Fender upgraded the standard, rather ordinary Highway One model in mid-2006 with. A very soft and thin satin nitrocellulose body finish (instead of polyurethane) to help the tone breathe and wear almost from first play!
A bigger neck - sort of a'64 big C profile, jumbo instead of vintage thin frets, and flatter fingerboard to prevent fretting out on bends. The now very popular'greasebucket' tone circuit to stop muddiness at lower volume pot settings. Hotter Texas pickups to give a n. Ice fat and typical'high wound' vintage voice. More reliable 70's style tuners than the previously used Kluson style vintage ones which tended to slip.A seventies style headstock logo, and the serial number moved to the back of the headstock. A 60th anniversary badge on the top of the headstock back.
This is one from the first run, with quite a pronounced and pretty wood grain. Soon after, the wood got more and more plain. Build Date: Body June 8, Neck July 5. Type: USA upgrade spec: hotter coils, greasebucket tone circuit, silk nitro finish.Colour: Alder 3-tone sunburst body, white 3 ply guard, upgraded to Fender pearloid. Neck: C profile maple, jumbo frets, 70s style tuners.
Case: Non-original padded gigbag (PRS SE or Fano). Options: Fender 60th Anniversary headstock emblem for this run (see pics). This guitar has hardly been played and was a backup guitar. It comes with all the paperwork, hang tags, etc and tools.There are two small dings on the body - see pics - one depression on the body edge without damage to the finish and one small scratch on the upper horn side. As stated, once you start to play this guitar, the finish is designed to age very quickly. Since it has been in its case in a temperature and humidity controlled vault it has not had the chance yet to age! The sunburst finish is very attractive and sets off the pearl guard, but you have the white guard in the case if you prefer. This is the one they use for Custom Shop guitars.
