**SUNDAY SALE**
I’ll pay for insured postage (UK mainland) or give you 50 quid for petrol, otherwise this’ll have to go on eBay.
For sale my 2007 Fender Highway One Tele. Included is a brand new Hiscox STD-EF case.
£136 full set-up by local luthier Colin Fulton last August, unplayed since then due to serious shoulder and back injury.

This was Fender’s ‘entry level’ U.S. made Tele, it’s finished in a black satin Nitro finish, which apparently is meant to age more quickly!
Here’s some blurb from Fender: ‘Fat frets and hot alnico-magnet single-coils equip this Highway One Telecaster electric guitar so that it’s music to your ears, candy for your eyes, and butter under your fingers. The new pickups on the Highway One Telecaster guitar produce a more round sound with that great Fender sparkle; it also has great high-gain sounds. Vintage-style bridge sports barrel saddles on an alder body with a maple neck. Ultralight satin nitro finish lets the wood breathe and ages sweetly’.
I can’t even dream about getting the best out of this now, so moving this on to someone who hopefully can.
Collection from Mid Suffolk or happy to post at cost.

    Feel for you Bro. Had to deal with the reality of shoulder injury and numb strum arm. Since sold on all my ‘expensive’ guits and worked hard in rehab and physio. The slimmest lightest contoured guitar was my first exercise; slipped under a sling and then later accompanied by spins on the TurboTrainer.
    A Tele isnt the lightest; have found a solution?
    Peace and love

    Thanks for the kind words. Yes, sort of. I’ve got a Squire Classic Vibe Jazzmaster that is thinner and lighter than the Tele and just about ’playable’ if I stand up, so it’s a start. And the turbo has been a godsend. 👍
