    As of today (1/03/2018) GC has 2 used Texas Highway One teles listed for sale. Both have rosewood fretboards, both have 22 frets, one is a 2 tone burst and the other is blue. It doesn't seem that either can be a Texas Highway One, so what's the deal? Wouldn't you think that a company that declares itself a "Guitar Center" would have some idea of what they are selling? Or have I missed something and one (or both) these are are the real deal and I'll be forever sorry if I don't grab one now? I've been on the hunt for a
    Texas HW One for a while and they seem to be rare. Or nobody wants to let
    theirs go. Whatta ya think?

    The sunburst Tele I saw there was not a Fender. It was made by "Texas Customs", and not a Highway One. The Daphne Blue model is a Fender. As far as if it is a "Highway One" model you would need the serial number to verify it. E-mail the store for more info.

    All of the "Texas" versions have maple fret boards and 21 frets along with vintage tuners. Regular HWY1's will have 22 frets and could be rosewood.

    Their errors go both ways...for better and worse. In my case better. Within one week last moth GC listed a Blonde HW1 TT and a sunburst HW1TT has just HWY1. I scooped them up. Both needed a little TLC but now I am throwing some other guitars overboard to finance my new addiction to this model...
