Wow! Thanks for all the responses, I actually forgot I posted this up. I snagged my 2014 Studio not long ago as I wanted the more simplified guitar. I only really need the single tone/volume master knobs, and I don't like the pickguard on the 335's. And it wasn't a big deal to me in the beginning as I've never owned a guitar with binding. But with mine being all ebony in color, the no binding looks really good to me. The factory pickups sound great, in fact the only things I've done to mine is put on a set of GraphTech Ratio locking tuners (If you've never heard of those, I urge you to look into them.) I feel every guitar needs locking tuners... I also ordered a "post" 2014 Gibson GraphTech black TUSQ XL nut as the one on the guitar seems to be made of plastic, and the clear coating is peeling off and looks gross. Oh, and for fun I had a custom engraved TRC made that says "Memphis". Always thought a blank TRC was a missed opportunity.
I've got a friend who has a brand new set of GraphTech saddles that will fit the guitar he said I can have for free, so once I have them in hand I might try them out on the next string change. The contact point for strings can never be too slick IMO, and GraphTech makes great product. I do wish the 2014 had the upgraded truss rod, somebody mentioned rounded fingerboard edges, but the ones on mine feel great so don't think I'm missing out there. Also, you say locking bridge was on the 2015 but not the 2014? Is that the two tiny allen screws in the front of the bridge so it doesn't move with the adjustment wheels? Because my 2014 has that as well.
Thanks again everybody!
