Moving the Stoptail further back in Gibson USA Posted November 22, 2019 · Report reply Perhaps. I would think the opposite as the scale is staying the same but the strings in between the bridge and stop tail got longer. I am gonna give it a shot anyway, taking my guitar beaten experimental SG to my luthier tomorrow to see if it is different. Going to leave the original posts where they are so the pickups stay grounded and if i want to switch back and forth. This poor thing has been through hell and back. I perform all my evil concocted ideas on this SG.
