    Is there any place where I can buy replacement bodies for my AM Deluxe?

    I wanted a Candy Apple Red body - as long as its alder, haves contoured heel and its a straight fit to an AM Deluxe 2010 neck/hardware, it doesn't have to be Fender :)

    I thought of stripping and painting the current body but I wanted to keep it for "stock" sake in case one day I decided to sell and future owner prefer the original body.

    Many thanks in advance!

    I’m sure Warmoth got you covered

    I'm not 100% sure, but I know fender has been selling necks and bodies direct to customers lately.
    Have you checked there yet?

    yeah but they do the contoured heels in a way where the four neck screws are not all the same length.

    Is the neck contour vital? Most deluxe necks I've encountered have 5 holes so you could always use a standard body and neck plate and it would still work.

    I believe the new Deluxe (MIM) series comes in CAR and it has a contoured heel, but you will loose the micro-tilt feature. you can find these bodies on on eBay sold by Stratosphere

    Thank you all!!! Great info - didn't know AM Deluxe necks came with 5 holes :) That will broaden choices no doubt :)
