It has been a while since I have been motivated buy a new guitar. Sort of by accident I ended up playing a 2020 historic that I really liked. I was trying out a vintage guitar and saw a historic with the same finish and playing them back to back was really impressed with how close the historics had gotten with the top carve, color and resonance. After bringing it home I liked it enough I bought a second one. While I liked the wood with both I was less happy with the pickups that much and have ended up replacing them. I started to get PAFs or Pat#s but decided to stay with modern replicas to see how close I could get both guitars to the sound of vintage LPs without dipping into vintage stuff. 2018 RO (royal tea finish) which got the Duane Ox4 set and 2020 R0 with v3 neck (dark) which got the ‘58 PAF ReWind set. ReWind covers on both. They pair well with two prehistoric guitars I had (Leo Special and Heritage Award reissue). Also included a group picture with two 50s LPs I have had for a long time.
