I've played a number of Deluxes, but I'm not that familiar with the Princeton. I mean, I've heard of them, but what do they sound like? Is it similar to a Deluxe, or a totally different beast?
Princeton is a little Deluxe in some senses. It's about 12 Watts. The best clean sounding Fender when set up properly. The only problem is the Princeton is just that, nothing but clean, humbuckers will barely make it break up when cranked. Now it's brother the Princeton Reverb has a little more gain on tap because of an extra gain stage in the reverb circuit.

Same goes for the Deluxe, it's a little cleaner than the Deluxe Reverb for the same reason as the Princetons. Just not as bad.
