Which one? I'm leaning towards the deluxe. It looks a lot nicer but not sure about playability and such. Help me!

You need to play each one to see which one you like better. Never buy a guitar based on looks. Go to your local music shop and see if they have them.
My gear:

Guitars
Schecter C1 Plus (Black Cherry)
Epiphone Les Paul Special 2 (Sunburst)
Fender Squier Strat (Blue)
Martin DXK2
Marquis

Amplification
Line 6 Spider 2 212

Accessories/Effects
Dunlop Tortex .60s
Dunlop Crybaby

So far as I know they're almost the same execpt for cosmetics(color, pickup covers, etc). If you're goin for looks and got money to burn you might as well go with the deluxe, but if you want to save for maybe accessories or an amp, etc, you should go with the standard. My two cents.

^ If they are both the same then I'll go with the Deluxe. I've got all the amp equip i need right now so I can blow a few extra dollars. Thanks for the help
