OS vs Historic: just read an article in the German Magazin Gitarre & Bass:
in this article Udo Pfeiffer compared a 59' VOS 2007 and a historic original '59 (!).
He came to the conclusion, that never before such good replication was made (optical & sound...) but he complaint mainly that the 50s wiring schematic is not being used? Is there a reason why ? (the tone condensers are wired to the input of the volume potentiometer instead to the output).
After adding real Bumblebees and a ABR-1 Bridge from 1960, the VOS was matched to the original perfectly)
