    I know the Fender Special Highway 1 basses are new and not much is out on the net about them yet, but I just received mine and thought I'd let you all know what I think. Anyway, I'm completely satisfied with it. The craftsmanship is great and setup was a snap (I didn't need to fiddle around with anything). If you've done any research on these at all, you know that the finish is quite unique. It's a light satin coat, and while I won't go so far as to say it's matte-like, it's considerably less glossy and shiny than the standard coatings so common today. You can fainly see the wood grain through it. Overall, I love the finish (mine is honey blonde, but I like the other three as well). As an added bonus, Fender says the light finish actually creates a better tone (personally, I haven't played enough basses in order to have a feel for if that's true or not), and it supposedly ages very nicely. Other than that, it sounds great and it is just what I was looking for. I'd be happy to answer questions about it if anyone has some.

    I'm hoping that Fender make some of the Highway basses lefty. There are such good value for the money.
