    Picked this up in the Emporium last week. This guitar is super resonant and the lacquer finish is incredibly thin. Actually, it's the only one from the first couple years I have ever seen without a bunch of chips in the finish.

    I love her. I put my pickguard into her with a Dimarzio Super Distortion S and 2 Kinman Woodstocks. I also have a "neck on" switch on this guard. I installed Fender locking Tuners too. This guitar is really beautiful. Set her up to float and I can literally beat the hell out of the bar and she stays in tune.

    I am really enjoying this HWY1 beauty.

    That was a great year for the Highway 1s IMO. I've got an '03, too, and it's my favorite strat to date.

    I agree....great year. I have tried the "upgraded" ones and they don't seem to "ring" the same as mine or other old ones.
