On my G310 the neck is set in futher, giving you more room between the tailpiece and the pickups for your hand to rest. The neck on this one is very thin, flat (unlike the 2002 Faded Gibson's bat neck). It also has a very dark, smooth fingerboard. Not sure if it's ebony, or what, plus it's got Jazz/JB's, so it sounds pretty good. The Gibson pups are a bit clearer, though this may have to do with the pots. I don't know. it doesn't matter at this point.
