50th 2009 v 2002-2008 differences??

Gamma Burst

Recommended Posts

There's supposedly 20 or so changes but I couldn't tell you what they all are. The few I've noticed are:

The neck on the '07 is chunkier.

The tone pots have a taper on the '09; whereas, the older ones don't. It's basically 0 or 10.

Not sure, but I think the Burstbuckers were overhauled. The '09 has a completely different sound.

Other than that, I've just noticed a few superficial things.

The serial number is different and the location of the pots has changed.


Are you thinking about buying one?

Really, you can't go wrong with either the '09s or pre-09s.
