I'm looking at buying this guitar. Selller says it's a 2003-4 USA Deluxe strat. I know many people call the HSS Strat a deluxe. How can I tell the difference? Both models have the s1 switch. This guitar doesnt have the fancy fretboard dots my friends deluxe has. It doesnt have the cutaway at the heal like other simlare aged deluxe models too. Nor does it have the locking tuners that ive seen on deluxe strats for years. Thats what makes me think this might be a HSS and not a deluxe???
