I have fallen in love with the 1 - 9/16 nut on the older SG's after purchasing my 76 standard recently. My fav size was 1 5/8 and wanted to try the SG in the 1-9/16 and fell in love with the easy open chord changes for my skinny fingers.. I know that GIBSON changed the SG nut to 1-9/16 in 1965 at some time.. and this ran through 1978 I believe? I have seen a few "The SG" and the Firebrands from the late 70's back to 1-11/16 nut.

Can anyone confirm when the transition took place in the late 70's or early 80's? My 1976 Standard has the 1- 9/16 nut.. my 1986 - 62 reissue is 1- 11/16
