    What are the big differences between the Historic reissues, and typical 61 reissues.

    It might not shed much light to the topic but the 61 RI is most likely the nicest non-custom shop Gibby guitar today.

    pick ups are the first thing, historics use bb's 1&2, and the necks are built
    with the long tenon.
    As long as you are not rough with a USA model the long tenon issue
    will not matter! (IMHO!!) Electronics are the major difference!!
