they changed a few things. Now it comes with a black guard (50s accurate), smooth steel saddles (early 1950 accurate), and less body wear. Unfortunately the neck wear still looks incredibly fake. I think somehow they managed to make the neck look worse, which is no small feat as it looked terrible before. also the old necks were a really nice soft V shape. these are labled C, not sure if they changed it because the old ones were labled C as well but actually werent.
still, these are really nice players. If i didnt have 5 teles, 2 blackguards already id buy one.
