I'm looking at 2 new Memphis Gibson Black Top ES Les Pauls. One is a 2014 & the other is a 2016.

They appear to be the same. Does anyone here lnow if the are or aren't? If they're different what are the differences??

Thanks you,

Lars

I think the 2016 has adirondack spruce bracing and abr-1 bridge (2014 had the AVR2 bridge) there may be a cap change between them too but I don't recall the specs. I've read differing things on the neck carve so seems like that may be different but might just be normal variation on the hand finished necks. 2014 has 1.7" nut, 2016 has 1.68" nut I think too...
I don't see the 2014 model on the Gibson site any longer so just going from memory, might be some other differences...
