Ok, so I am going to get one of these. I have only budgeted so much for it though. I want to get the Cherry sunburst deluxe with a rosewood fretboard. I like the quilted top!! The question is I can get one in a "standard" cherry sunburst with the NTMB electronics for the same amount of $$, Is the NTMB electronics so much of a difference in tone etc. that I should forget about going with the deluxe and forget the quilted top? Should I sacrifice cosmetics for tone? Is the difference in tone really that significant?? I really, really like the quilted top.
