I played a drop top HSS that was picked up at NAMM by a local dealer. It featured the FL's in the neck/middle and SSV in the bridge (I believe). Those pickups sounded pretty darn good. Sweeter than the Fralins in my Grosh (BS), which were still a little dark/muddy through the same /13 RSA 23c. Also played a Nash with Lollars (??), and that whole setup was pretty lifeless. I assume is was the guitar's fault, not necessarily the pickups. Of course my Heritage with WCR Darkburst bridge rocked an RV50 head running JJ 6V6's through two Orange 4x12 cabs. That was fun!!
