AweSome "Deluxe" Strat-style Electric Guitar Product Description

Our AweSome "Deluxe" Strat-style electric guitar is an exceptional guitar with incredible features. You get a smooth-playing, enhanced-sustain maple compound radius fretboard, highly visible pearloid position inlays, and a range of 35 pickup tones.

Why did we call this model "Deluxe"? It's simple. Because it will breathe new life into your musical creativity. It also gives dealers whom Fender abandoned a far superior alternative for their customers.

The "AMI" (i.e., AweSome Musical Instruments) graphic cuts on the lower edge of our trademark headstock give this AweSome guitar its own unique "edginess" that has no equal.

Our AweSome "Deluxe" Strat-style Electric Guitar now includes Treble Bleed circuitry plus high quality polypropylene tone control capacitors (with a superior linear frequency response) for unequaled versatility. This "Deluxe" guitar gives you "American Pro Stratocaster" performance from your stock guitars.

Want MORE Versatility?

This "Deluxe" guitar let you do the following things:
(Things you CANNOT do on a standard Stratocaster!)   More... >

This "Deluxe" guitar also gives you those Brian May (guitarist for Queen) "red special" pickup sounds because you can instantly put any two or all three pickups into series (you cannot do this on your standard Stratocaster.)   And when you put two select pickups in series, you can turn on the remaining pickup in parallel (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) and this is something even Brian May's red special guitar cannot do. This "Deluxe" guitar will give you incredible pickup tones that are so "Fat" – they're OBESE!

When used In The Studio, your "Deluxe" guitar will have an incredible spectrum of 35 unique pickup tones that are impossible to produce with a "stock" instrument.

When used On Stage, your "Deluxe" guitar will give you incredible Signature Sounds that nobody else can easily duplicate. And over time, you can even "morph" your Signature Sounds to keep your fans interested in what you offer.

Using This "Deluxe" Guitar

How It Works

There are two "groups" of switches: (SW4, SW5, SW6)   -and-  (SW1, SW2, SW3)

The first group of switches (SW1, SW2 and SW3) are ON-OFF-ON switches used to turn an individual pickup Off and On. The middle position of each switch is Off. The down position turns the pickup On (in normal-phase) and the Up position turns the pickup on (in reverse-phase).

SW1 controls the Bridge pickup
SW2 controls the Middle pickup
SW3 controls the Neck pickup

When you use these three switches (with SW4, SW5, SW6 all in the Down position), you get 13 different pickup tones from the combinations of three pickup coils being Off or On (either in normal-phase or in reverse-phase). It is also due to the combination of the pickup coils being in a Parallel circuit.

The second group of switches (SW4, SW5 and SW6) are ON-ON switches are used to put select pickups into a Series circuit.
Two things to remember when using this second group of switches:

First, putting two or three pickups in Series circuit creates a "Compound" (i.e., Humbucker) pickup that gives you about 8 to 15 percent More output (think Heavy Metal/Jazz tone).

Second, because ALL the pickups are in a Series circuit, those pickups MUST be On (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase). Any non-Series circuit pickup can be either Off or On (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase).

Using the Second Group of Switches

Starting with switches SW4, SW5 and SW6 in the Down position;

Put switch SW4 in the Up position and the Bridge pickup and Middle pickup are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both the Bridge pickup and the Middle pickup using switches SW1 and SW2 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, the Neck pickup (controlled by SW3) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).

Put switch SW5 in the Up position and the Bridge pickup and Neck pickup are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both the Bridge pickup and the Neck pickup using switches SW1 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, the Middle pickup (controlled by SW2) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).

Put switch SW6 in the Up position and the Middle pickup and Neck pickup are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On both the Middle pickup and the Neck pickup using switches SW2 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. In this example, the Bridge pickup (controlled by SW1) can be either Off or On (in normal-phase or reverse-phase).

Put both switches SW4 and SW6 into the Up position and all three pickups are in a Series circuit. You MUST turn On ALL of the pickups using switches SW1, SW2 and SW3 (either in normal-phase or reverse-phase) to hear any sound. This gives you an incredible overdriven bass sound in spades. It also gives you Brian May's heavy metal tones.

You get 35 pickup tones with this "Deluxe" guitar.   < Less
