Always wonder how people find the reissues compared to the real deal. Do you find the historic similar to a vintage lp? I have heard that the early 50s p90s are hard to replicate. I guess a 57 would have PAFs

yes this r7 has humbucking pups my old 52 has the p 90s. i have owned several 50s lps over the years and i think the reissues are fine guitars. the small details have changed here and there over the years but this r7 is just a fine musical instrument. not a perfect replica but close enough for me. funny thing is once i dial in my ''tone'' they all sound pretty much the same. for me its all about the neck shape. some reissues are just too big for me. having fun getting it set up.had some 2013 R9 plastic so i upgraded the pup rings and the poker chip ..got rid of the pink stuff. looks better. really liking the pups..very bloomfield..yes!!

You had me at Bloomfield. Sounds great, you must be psyched. Congratulations!

Would still like to see some pics, though...

Sounds like you have the perfect collection Sir. Keeping my fingers crossed that you start gigging soon. Have a great Easter weekend and stay safe.
