The Fender Highway One Stratocaster HSS pays homage to guitarists who emerged in the ’80s as hobbyist luthiers, adding aftermarket appointments like black bobbin humbucking pickups and DIY finishes. Two single-coil pickups with Alnico magnets and staggered pole pieces are coupled with a Fender Atomic II humbucker for amazing sonic versatility. Other features include a resonant alder body with a light satin-lacquer finish, large headstock, one-piece maple neck with 22 medium-jumbo frets, and synchronized tremolo.
