I'm going to add....yes.I had the opportunity to play an original 60 many years ago.In fact,i had the chance to buy it for the princely sum of 1400$.I didn't.Never forgot it.The pickups were too weak and hard sounding,so i bailed.That is guitar A in this shootout.I was way more into the Dimarzio Super Distortion sound at that time.What did i know back then...nothing.Still don't,lol.Definitely B, unless of course it's A...
seemed harder sounding...
That is all cool. There is no vested interest for sure. That is why a clip is an obvious A/B. Cause they are NOT selling either of the 2, right. Maybe just a Custom Shop one ...korus, I too like Guitar B better and thought it was the Burst. I listened and did not really look at the video.
Look again, unfortunately there is a tell in the clip (this is no spoiler by me, it was posted on the previous page of the thread).
My guess: it's the pickup covers that make guitar B sound mellower.

It does sound differently through proper closed headphones very loud compared to mobile phone sound with or w/o cheap ones. Silly naive me, too confident, inner child and all that.
So, I can only agree with "wow, they are so close tonewise, you cannot tell them apart". More of the same, 'so close'. Right.
Or 640 views. Since June 22nd, at least.A typical video on their channel receives 500 to 900 views.
This video has received 2500, so far.
