Is this worth the extra $170 or so over the Fender Standard MIM???? I played a Honey blonde with rosewood board sounded good. Am I better off buying the MIM Standard then upgrading on my own. I don't have the money for an MIA. What is the difference between rosewood and maple boards??? Tone wise. Thanks

I would get a deluxe over the standard. In fact, I've had the Deluxe Powerhouse model for a while and it's great. You may want to upgrade some stuff later though. Ive changed some stuff to help it stay in tune better and I just got some new pickups for it.
