    Hi, I've just acquired a 2005 Deluxe Bad Boy Blue Strat. It's my first Strat with S1 switching.
    Having checked online there seems to be variations in pickup combinations, so can anyone please tell me the correct combination for my guitar?.
    Thanks

    That's for an MIM Deluxe Strat. The Bad Boy Blue is an FSR American Deluxe Stratocaster; the OP neglected to call his guitar an "American Deluxe".

    @PogWalusiak I think it was only the HSS American Deluxes that Fender changed during the product run (2004-2009); the SSS models were unchanged. So I think this one from 2004 should be correct for this guitar:

    Thanks for your replies they are very useful. I have to admit that I made a mistake, and that it is a 2004 Strat. The information I have however shows 2 configurations. which are:
    A
    POSITION 5 NECK AND BRIDGE PICKUPS
    POSITION 4 NECK, MIDDLE AND BRIDGE PICKUPS
    POSITION 3 MIDDLE PICKUP
    POSITION 2 MIDDLE AND BRIDGE PICKUPS
    POSITION 1 BRIDGE PICKUP

    B
    POSITION 5 ALL PICKUPS IN SERIES
    POSITION 4 NECK AND MIDDLE PICKUPS IN SERIES
    POSITION 3 MIDDLE AND BRIDGE PICKUP IN SERIES
    POSITION 2 NECK PICKUP IN PARALLEL WITH MIDDLE
    AND BRIDGE PICKUPS IN SERIES
    POSITION 1 BRIDGE PICKUP IN PARALLEL WITH NECK
    AND MIDDLE PICKUPS IN SERIES
    If nobody who has the Bad Boy Strat can tell me which is right, I believe there is a test that I can do to check it out.
