    Used to own the 2 pickup Historic CS version. Killer guitar. Still miss it, and may eventually get another. With some work, the vibrato can actually be made to function well (return to tune, etc.). Mine had Burstbuckers, and while somewhat unusual for an SG, they sounded great. Very LP-ish, especially in the middle setting, but a bit more raw and brash. BTW, the main gripe I had with the 3 pickup version, is that you loose that middle setting, which is my favorite SG/LP tone. AC

    I had a 61 reissue with the Maestro. Really serious tuning issues that couldn't be over come. Too bad. I liked it otherwise.

    I wonder if he served with col. braddock (chuch norris) and john rambo. I bet rambo played bass.
