Here’s a lovely classic, American-made Tele with all the expected, no-frills appointments. The Fender Highway One Telecaster just puts a spin on an old favorite. The Highway One sports chunky, jumbo frets, modern ‘C’ shaped neck and some piping hot vintage pickups. It has a 3-saddle bridge rather than a 6-saddle.This beauty is finished in Rare Red with a Rosewood board Electronically Fender has gone back to the drawing board too with the power of the guitar’s pickups being increased.

Replacing the vintage-style single-coils are what Fender describes as Hot Strat and Tele single-coils that are all based around an Alnico III magnet foundation, a mid-strength magnet that should provide a slightly enhanced, hotter performance when compared to an Alnico II.

Additionally, the guitar offers Fender’s increasingly popular Greasebucket tone circuit that was developed in the Custom Shop as a way of rolling off the high-end without the usual low-end whoomph of a standard passive tone control circuit. On the Tele, the Greasebucket affects all three pickup selections. Any electricians among you will appreciate the information that each Greasebucket tone control wiring includes two ceramic disk capacitors alongside a 4.7k ohm metal film resistor: for the rest of us, just knowing it’s there is enough…

The Tele’s bridge plate bears a trio of chromed saddles and traditional thru-body stringing. The guitar features a single-piece neck of a lightly flecked maple.

She is in sperb all-round condition, with a perfect neck, zero fret wear & just a very small amount of hardly noticeable, but expected playwear!

She sleeps in her aftermarket plush-lined case.
