    Was making the rounds in the pawnshops this Wednesday when I ran into the brother of my '09 Fender Highway 1 Honey Blonde Tele.

    Saw this beautiful Honey Blonde Strat on the racks when I walked in.

    When I walked up to it to grab it, and saw it was Honey Blonde color, I knew it was Highway 1.

    Pulled it off the rack, saw the asking price was less than what GC would have paid for it, and knew it would be mine.

    I didn't have the cash to take it home, but I got them to give it to me a hard case for it, and let me lay it away for asking price with no tax.

    I've now got 6 months to get it out, but it won't be there that long.

    Here's my '09 Fender Highway 1 Honey Blonde Strat.

    Thanks.

    I hadn't seen a Honey Blonde strat in any second hand guitar shops I frequent either.

    I guess it's not that common, so I really lucked out snagging it.

    I can't wait to get it out to so I can get it set up and put it through its paces.

    I've heard negative and positive things about the Alnico III pickups in the strat,but

    I'm sure I can dial them in to my liking.

    It's just a matter of getting the pickup heights set properly and working the volume and tone knobs.

    What a beauty. It's a wonderful thing to be at the right place at the right time.
    As jimilee stated above that headstock looks killer.
