Play The American Dream!

You'll take to the newly "repaved" Highway 1 Telecaster® with its thin-skinned satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that lets the natural tone of the body wood shine through, hotter and very distortion-friendly Alnico III pickups that produce a rounder sound but still feature that trademark FENDER® sparkle. Other improvements include super-sized jumbo frets for faster action, bold '70s styling, and exciting new colors. To top it all off, the Highway 1 Telecaster comes with a deluxe gig bag.

Fender Highway 1 Telecaster at a Glance:
  • Solid alder body with satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • 2 Hot Tele® Single-coil Pickups with Alnico-3 Magnets
  • One-piece maple neck and fingerboard with modern "C" shape.

Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish for Extra Resonance
Players demanded it and Fender delivered it! This Highway comes with a satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish, which is usually found on high-end guitars. The satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish allows the alder body to resonate freely, delivering crisp, glossy tones and maximum sustain thanks to the two hot single-coil Alnico III Tele pickups. A three-ply white pickguard maintains the classic Tele look. Factor in a mind-blowing low price tag, and you've got one of the most in-demand Teles in the entire Fender catalog.

Alnico III for Vintage Fender Tone
The new Highway 1 Telecaster now features 2 Hot Tele Single-coil Pickups with Alnico-3 Magnets in the neck and bridge position. Alnico IIIs were the magnets used in original Fender pickups from the early '50s (Alnico stands for the basic composition of the magnet: aluminum, nickel, and cobalt). If you are looking for an authentic vintage Fender tone, a pickup with Alnico IIIs will certainly do the job - and the modern ones found in the Highway 1 Teles are better than ever. They give you a round sound combined with classic tele sparkle - and speaking of sparkle, they also shine when it comes to high-gain sounds.

Fast Playing Maple Neck with Modern "C" Shape
Leo Fender wasn't afraid to "think outside the box" when it came to guitar designs - after all, he was an engineer, not a guitar player. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. The Highway 1 Tele carries on the tradition with a fast-playing one-piece maple neck and fingerboard. In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the neck is finished in a smooth satin polyurethane.
