Wow, heck of a score! Good for you!Last fall on eBay I lucked into a 2007 Historic VOS SG that was loaded with a pair of 1963 Pat # pups. These pickups are exactly the same as original PAF pickups. I was amazed that I won the guitar for $1475. The pickups alone or the guitar alone were worth more than my winning bid. I had submitted a max bid of $1800 not expecting to win the guitar and I was amazed when I won it at the price I did.
Well the pup differences are not even that big of a deal IMO. The biggest difference that makes the historic a better SG is the long neck tenon and arguably better woods used on the VOS. The long tenon makes a big difference in resonance and sustain even acoustically and I've a/b'd the 61 reissue and vos historic.GCDEF said:I agree. Other than maybe the pickups on the Standard, I'm not sure how a VOS could be that much better.
I have to respectfully disagree about the pickups. I'll agree that probably the wood and tendons matter, too, but I just had the pickups replaced in my two standards and I think it made a pretty huge difference.Well the pup differences are not even that big of a deal IMO.
