Highway 1 strats
    #2179277 - 12/15/03 12:54 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

does anyone have one... i'm thinkin about getting a strat or something similar(single coils and trem)....these sound like a pretty good deal, but i haven't got a chance to actually play one. i'm kinda wondering about the quality of the bridge specifically. if anyone has any input it would be appreciated

I have the red Highway 1 with maple neck and I'm in love with it. The only thing I wish is that it had a Floyd Rose bridge, but the stock bridge is good. If you use the tremolo often it will go out of tune kind of quick though. I'm thinking about upgrading the pickups for Christmas, getting a Seymour Duncan humbucker built for single coils, and maybe upgrade the other 2. But the playability is fantastic. You should definitely try it out before you buy it though.

I have a (Texas special) american strat with a sunburst finish. Its friggin beautiful. Ya know when you walk into a guitar store and try a nice guitar, and it has that special feel. But when you buy it and keep it for a couple years, it's magic wears off? Well, every time, I pick up my guitar, I can't help but to think of how lucky I am to have it. It's just so sleek and the neck is real smooth. . .

I would definately look in to getting a strat. but make sure that you don't just buy one because it's a good guitar. Look around and keep playing different guitars until you find the one with your name written on it. You may have to play 200 guitars first, not like that's a chore or anything.

They're decent,but I would just spring the extra couple hundred and get the real deal if possible. The paint on them sucks ass. Every one that I've seen is all chipped up,and they've only been out like a year or something.

People think that if you just say the word "hallucinations" it explains everything you want it to explain and eventually whatever it is you can't explain will just go away.It's just a word,it doesn't explain anything...
