I was just wondering what is the main difference between a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Fender Blues Deluxe?

I'm pretty sure the hot rods simply have more channels with more gain

Fender 52 RI Telecaster
'77 Deluxe Reverb

Blues Deluxe is a bit nicer clean, and the Hot Rod's extra OD channel and the normal one are useless.

Not true, the regular drive can sound relatively decent, if one takes the time to find it. I cannot speak of the blues deluxe, but the OD on the HRD is not bad at all, it just isnt amazing.

The Hot Rod has that "More Gain" switch, not on a Blues Deluxe.

Ya know, for the price of new one you can find silverface Deluxes used.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
