(Originally written by silvenard1/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
USA/Mexico! Very good overall finish (I checked every detail).

22 frets, three alnico single-coil pickups.

Fender vintage vibrato.

UTILIZATION

Very pleasant neck (I previously tried out seven or eight US Strats and this one was the most comfortable).

Rather easy, typical Strat access to the upper frets.

The guitar is quite light (no heavy Floyd Rose tremolo or locking system).

It sounds wonderful like many other Strats, except maybe very high-end models.

If you're looking for the Strat sound, don't hesitate to buy it!

SOUNDS

I think you can use this guitar for almost every music style depending on the setting, the effects and the amp.

I personally have a Peavey Bandit 112 and a Yamaha DG Stomp pedal... Everything is possible (except Slayer and other extreme stuff...)!

The bridge pickup produces a very twangy and biting sound. Combined with the center pickup, it becomes less aggressive. The middle pickup gives good results for funky rhythm parts but it still sounds twangy. The second pickup combination provides very unique sound landscapes, and the neck pickup is great to play Yngwie Malmsteen solos.

Each pickup combination produces a different sound. It's incredible!

OVERALL OPINION

I changed it for a more expensive guitar and this Highway Strat gives me a better sound quality and more versatility than the previous one.

I've owned many Strats with every single pickup combination (two Seymour Duncan humbuckers, two P90, a DiMarzio HSH combination, two EMG humbuckers, etc.) and this one is the most versatile (even though some others sound better for hard rock and heavy metal... ;-)

Very good value for money. I would buy it again.
