What model is your AM Deluxe ?
That makes ALL the difference in the world.
I personally collect and play the 1996 2001 models
the 2001-2008 models.
I find the newer AM deluxe with all due respect NEITHER sound as good, look as good, play as good, or SETUP as good. I have 4 of them from 1999-2006 and ALL necks are perfect and plus they have 22 frets.
just personal choice BUT the new AM Deluxe from 2010 on just doesn't do it for me..I feel Fender is super over the top in the gazillions of models it produces --like the new re-issues and the Select...who cares--and they are NOT CHEAP. I don`t even have to get into Master Built Geddy Lee costing more than an original (there has been a forum on this already
So IF it is an early AM Deluxe, I am surprised to hear of neck buzz ? If so I think I agree with another response--teeny bit more neck relief and move bridges up and pickups down-for balance
