Well, I think it's time I move up from my Squier Affinity. I was thinking about going with a Squier Deluxe in daphne blue. However, I worry about the body being basswood. I know there is slight tonal differences compared to ash or something, but I'm more concerned with it being such a soft wood and denting easily. Anyone who has a Squier Deluxe (or any basswood guitar for that matter), how is it holding up?
