I just bought a nice Fender Highway one Texas Telecaster. I do think the only common point with the regular Hw1 series is the name. Kind of poor man ri52 or hot rod 52. By the grain wood, I'm 95% sure it was the one i briefly had before trading it for a 78 modded strat. Ring like a bell and weight less than 7lbs…
Just need to buy a new pickguard. Original one was painted and now is totally warped.
Now the question is: Black or white?

I had a MIJ Fender 52 RI in two tone with the black guard, looked great. That would be my choice.

Just my opinion but the white is just too stark of a contrast. At most, parchment might work if you're drawn to lighter p/g shades. I like the black guard best though. Understated but also classic.

Surprised I'm alone in this, but I prefer the white to the black. But a nice mint or parchment might be an improvement on that.
