Interesting what you said here! and I totally agree! I have owned 3 vintage '50s whiteguards (2 currently - the '56 & the '58, traded the '57 for a '68 plexi Bluesbreaker). I have played countless CS Teles and I can recall only one of those, as being in the same neighborhood as the originals. And trust me, I really want to find one that is, AS GOOD, as the originals. Why? So, I can sell the whiteguards and still have something that has the feel, vibe and sound of the originals, without all my money being tied up.
