Does the 2016 SG Standard T have a slim 60s style neck profile?
The one I played last Sunday had a Louisville Slugger neck profile.
The one I played had a pretty thick neck. Didn't feel uncomfortable at all, and for some reason didn't feel as thick as either of my epi's but that could just be my mind playing tricks
I'm confused why people are reporting they have a thicker neck, but the ads says ..."what's known as the slim-taper design, a Sweetwater favorite. The SG took it one step farther, making the neck among the fastest ever designed."
I went to GC to try one but they were sold out!
Although its implied, I suppose it doesn't actually say the neck is slim...
does anyone know the allen wrench size used on these new nashville bridges?
Allen wrench? Do they have TonePros style bridges now? Just get yourself one of those cheap allen key sets (the sort on a keyring), one in metric and one in imperial, one of them is bound to fit.
it's not locking like the tonepros... the bridge height is adjustable now with an allen wrench at the top of the posts. I'll get a set like you said. Thanks!
demos of the 2016 start to appear on youtube
I'm glad Gibson is going back to the older looking head stocks and frets!!! The new 2016 models look amazing, even the lower priced ones look awesome!!! Love that new SG Special with mini pickups!!!
My 2014 Standard has no nibs ... thankfully!
I think the best neck would've been a 2014 neck with no nibs mixed with the 2015 necks fret height.
What does the T stand for in the model names? Also when will Gibson officially release the 2016 electric range? Nothing on the website.
Traditional i believe, as in going back to tradition after 2015.
listen what this guy says at 0:20..there will be to 2016 gibson lines this years.the tradiotional (T) line, and the high performance line with all the 2015 upgrades!!
Cool. Thanks for posting that.
This seems to be such a positive move on behalf of Gibson. I hope that too many bridges were not burned.
The 2016 T series of SGs seem to be very much better than the 2015 guitars for many folks.
I would say, however, that the 2011/2012 line seem superior to me, and the standard was cheaper and came with a hardcase. I wonder how successful the 2011/2012 line was because in retrospect they do seem soooo very good. &, they did left hookers then too...
Interesting these bridges with Allen Key adjustment, it looks very similar to the machined steel ones from Pinnacle I put on both my LP and SG. The difference is they have the same hex screws for saddle adjustment.
Funny that 2 things I actually like but are definitely not so popular were also reintroduced : batwing and nibs lol
In any case in my opinion, Gibson's first good move in a long time. Can't say I was impressed with Gibson's last 10 years marketing decisions, was reminding me Microsoft with their uncalled for customer's mouth shoveling innovations...
Key is to listen to and give what customers want, not trying to innovate for the sake of it!
Wow, you're the first person I've come across who likes nibs. Serious question - what is it about them that you like? I've never found them to be anything but pain.
