    Hm..I guess it is..
    Wizz are great! Really! Much more clarity & dynamics than stock 57’s. Now guitar really sings, It makes you play different in a good way.
    I only need to rewire it to 50’s wiring any try that out..

    ABR is the narrow bridge with the stew shaft directly into the body .the Nashville is wider and has wide bushings in the body..FYI..people prefer the ABR-1 because it is screwed directly into the body but other prefer Nashville for the better intonation range..

    Getting there, final profiling of the neck was done yesterday, setup done, now to tear it down buff it out and do the finish on the neck 1 3/4 at the nut, modified 1960 Gibson profile, and headstock. Electronics were brought to GC, they totally failed the Jimmie Page setup I wanted, going to plan D, rip it out and Do it myself and just go with coil taps.

    Two of my SG have ABR-1 and the other three have Nashville. Makes no difference to me. I play what comes with the guitar and don’t experience any intonation issues with either version bridge.

    I agree..may just be the R-62 I have but the body vibration is very very pronounced with the ABR-1 vs the harmonica on the 76

    Angus was recording with T-Tops at least through For Those About To Rock. Possibly Flick of the Switch too, but I'm not sure, there isn't much info on that era.

    Not sure about for those about to rock, and almost certainly not on Flick.

    Angus’ T-Top days were the early days. I would wager Let there be rock, Australian dirty deeds, high voltage and so on. By flick he was using a 1980 Norlin SG with the weird selector switch location and side jack input. You can see this in the rehearsal videos, and given the sound I tend to think it was used for recording.

    It’s actually amazing how Angus’ Sound and tone changed over the years. Throw on Let There Be Rock, or Soul stripper, and then compare them to something Back and Black Album. Or for even a bigger difference Black ice or Rock or Bust.

    His tone has changed, but little bits at a time. Only over a huge year gap is it so prevalent.

    But those T Tops had a very distinct sound.

    Also, in regards to Flick of the switch, this was one of the best things to come from that. I just love Angus groove and Brian using the solo as an opportunity to light another Cig is priceless. Cliff’s “headless” bass accompanied by Simon Wright on drums, it all just screams 1980’s. The only corner stone that never veered from their roots was Mal. God I miss that guy

    I would agree with you and I am now when t tops faded and tarbacks came in. I prefer the mid clarity of t tops. I do know that mutt Lange began to mix in many more amp combos and overdubs..even using mid 70's master volume Marshalls at times. The sound changed after HTH album for sure. Not sure if it was getting away from the live takes that George preferred or what . I like both FTATR and flick..I also think the songs on fly on the wall were great..but the vocals we're produced so thin..almost unlistenable.. the modern era SD pickups are ok..just different.. they have said they actually spent the most time ever in the studio on Razors edge..that sound was back to very vintage Marshalls as well.
