    Hi,
    I have also been persuaded to help in the revitalization of the site from the TDPRI plea...hehe.
    Anyway, not quite new here as I have been a member for a while just not active. I hope to spend more time here. I purchased a new DRRI early this month and that has reignited my love of my Highway one.

    Gratuitous pics.

    Nice HWY 1 :) Did you polish it out ? What year is it ?

    When my 2005 was still wine transparent, I used some jewelers' rouge and then some Turtle Wax rubbing compound mixed with some guitar polish, and it became a new guitar, outstanding shine.

    Only problem was, it was still red. So an hour with some acetone fixed that issue. Then I coated it with a few coats of Formby's Tung Oil Finish, and it looked better to me.

    Thanks for the welcome guys!


    My Hwy one is an '06. Yeah, I did polish it up some with Mcguiers Swirl Remover. I liked it satin as well but was curious to see it shine.
    So you acetoned the red out huh? Hmmm... I like the wine red color.

    Greetings all
    I've just had a 2nd hand strat bought me. Altho' I've been playing a number of years I've not used anything like the stat and the controls are taking a while to work out. Can anyone point me in a direction that can guide me to save me time on trial and error?
    Many Thanks:confused:
