Hi all, I'm on the hunt to upgrade my SG to a custom shop SG and essentially "be done" with the trade ups. I've done it on just about all my other Gibsons, and my SG is one of the last. I have a 2015 SGS3 which I've modified quite a bit and is overall a great guitar. Very versatile and easy to play. The three pickup thing can be annoying sometimes. I feel as though that extra pickup, even when not engaged, is affecting the tone. The guitar is overall more choked than most other SGs I've played that don't have the third pickup. I played a few three pickup Customs that I felt had a similar tonal characteristic. That and the fact that my playing style seldom uses the middle pickup makes it an easy choice to let go. I've had the pleasure to play a few 60th Anniversary 61 SGs at CME a few weeks ago and I must say, they were pretty great. Beautiful to behold and full of character, each one. However, I'm not a fan of the sideways vibrola and I personally feel as though it's less desirable, tonally, than the Maestro vibrola. So I figured the natural choice would be to find a '64 Reissue with the Maestro vibrola. Unfortunately, not so easy to find at the moment. My question is if anyone has had a chance to play both, what are some striking characteristics of each that you've observed. Did you prefer one over the other? I understand neck profile is different and the trem system, but everything else should be identical or at least very similar. I appreciate your sharing in advance!
