    So my 14 Standard, which I love, has always had less pinch harmonics response than my other 2. Not much but... I have played it pretty steady since 2015 so you know it is not real different.

    Late the other night I decided I needed, as my 17 has one, an aluminum bridge and tail piece. Heck I will spring for the titanium saddles.

    It comes. I go to pull the bolts, which I never had, for the tailpiece. I find ..

    Ah yes, the lacquer discs!

    Gibson installs the bushings before spraying

    I never saw them on any of the Gibsons I have owned before now. Just luck I guess.
