  1. Just purchasing a new 2011 American Deluxe Strat V-neck 2-color burst in noticed that mine came without the switching illustration. Your description was beneficial but I wanted to “see” the diagram…so I drew one and would like to submit it for your consideration. I had seen an illustration of the pre-2010 diagram and humbly admit mine is so much better (and in color)! Please let me know how I might get this to you for others on your fine site to enjoy and learn from.

  2. Scott, I will e-mail you with instructions on how to submit your diagram. Thank you! -Matt-

  3. I need 2002 American Deluxe Fat schematics. The volume pot is scratchy and I want to replace it with CTS, but not sure which ohm.


  4. Fender’s S1 switch give you 10 pickup tones. But AweSome Guitars’ T3-Switch gives you 35 pickup tones.

  5. Hi! Does anyone know if someone has made a pop in arm more similar in length as the american standard to the american deluxe? I don’t like the way the original american deluxe whammy bar feels in my hand when I’m working.
    I have the burgundy mist sss and the black one with hss.
    Would be glad if anyone had som creative ideas for me in this matter. =)
