    I got a hell of a deal on this guitar. The friend who had it asked if I would be interested in trading my Mesa Rectoverb 50 for a strat that he wasn’t playing. It turned out to be a 2006 Highway One with a beautiful 3-tone sunburst finish. Needless to say, I was happy to make the trade.

    So I have this very resonant, thin nitro finish guitar that has a Seymour Duncan Everything Axe pickup set in it. They aren’t doing anything for me at all. I want 3 mice single coil pickups.

    If anyone wants to trade a nice SSS pickup set for the Duncan set, hit me up. I like Texas Specials a lot, but I haven’t played on several of the newer pickups. It will be a complete, ready to install wiring harness. I’d trade pickguard and all if anyone have a tortoise one to send with the pickups. The pots are 500K so I don’t need them.

    Here she is. I can’t get a really good pic of the burst, and the fingerboard is darker in person.

    HNSD! Very classic look, I like it.

    Tortoise on a white body, maybe, IMHO

    It's a pickguard... It's not like it's not easily reversible...

    Totally disagree. Everyone says the best guitar is the one that makes you pick it up and play it. If op likes it and it's what inspires him, then why not?
    A totally reversible cosmetic thing. No harm no foul, and if it makes him play it, all the better imo

    There's a small manufacturer in Ohio called Bootstrap Pickups that sells Fender CS-style Made in USA singles sets for $55 shipped (for all 3 pups!)

    Takes about a month. Received mine recently, but haven't had a chance to try them yet. Seem well-made and more authentic than TexMex.

    And no, you're not putting a tortoise pickguard on that thing. You can do parchment or white.

    Jimi had a white Strat with a tortoise guard. They look good on white in my opinion.
