I had a 2003 and sold it. Ive regretted it deeply ever since. Ive never found another Strat to replace it, until I bought this one online used from GC on a whim: 2005 Highway One in Honey Blonde. Funny story, I actually bought it and returned it to GC recently citing some condition issues I had with it and felt $600 was too steep, even though it had a certain mojo, felt amazing and sounded great, so I reluctantly returned it. It ate at me ever since so I went back to GC and bought it AGAIN. I love it and all is well. Anyone else love Highway Ones? Id love to hear from you.
