Deluxe always means mini humbuckers in my book.
And to me, the Standard label just means not a Custom, Studio, Jr., or Special.

Glad they brought out the mini - THE secret weapon for neck pickups....and a passable bridge tone too if you go custom wound.

And that's why I don't settle. I have the best of both worlds.


I may try a P-90 in the neck one day though, just for the heck of it.

The recent thread regarding would someone call a Traditional a Standard got me thinking about something. Why is a Les Paul Deluxe not called a Les Paul Standard?

Originally the Les Paul Standard had P-90's. If a change of pickups required a name change, why not call the new humbucker equipped Les Pauls the Deluxe?

The Deluxe is the original Traditional. :applause:
