I have decided I will only be truly happy with an American Deluxe Telecaster. I have always wanted one in Aged Cherry Burst with a maple neck. I for years have gone to Guitar Center and picked it up and said to myself "One day" and just pined over it. I have never picked up one and just not been in love with it. I've just been thinking about it a lot lately. I may sell my American Standard Telecaster to put money towards it or see if I can work out a trade with someone and maybe throw in some cash or save up ,but the other 2 options are more likely to happen. I got offered an Eric Clapton Signature Stratocaster in Torino Red for my 2010 American Standard Telecaster in Blizzard Pearl,but turned it down as I am obviously a Tele guy lol. What year did they start using the S1 system and switch the pickups from the vintage noiseless to the N3's? Are there any other changes that they have made?
