Re: Stratocaster VS deluxe Stratocaster

what are the differences that you have been told about them? What is your price range?

Its the HSS delux that has the roller nut. The machineheads are Schaller locking not Sperzels

Re: Stratocaster VS deluxe Stratocaster

The Deluxe has a different heel, different pickups, more pick up selector options, nicer dots inlays, locking tuners, strap locks cone pre installed, I'm pretty sure it's a different bridge on the deluxe, I think more case candy comes with the deluxe also.

Personaly I'd spring for the Deluxe

Re: Stratocaster VS deluxe Stratocaster

I agree, the deluxe looks like the winner. I'm digging the heel.
