I've heard that the Highway 1 guitars get damaged really easily because of the light paintjob. I've played both at a shop and overall preferred the American, I prefer the heavy feel for some reason. I'd personally recommend the American, the tone is unbeatable after all, and it is a classic. The new American Strats have some improvements, I've heard, though I haven't played one of those yet.
There is still a difference between something and nothing, but it is purely geometrical and there is nothing behind the geometry.
