Does anyone know if the 2013 Custom Shop SG/LPs will have the same upgraded appointments as the regular Historic LPs?

1 piece Rosewood Fingerboards, Under-wound pickups, hide glue; correct truss etc.. ?

I have emailed the Custom Shop twice with no answer

Thanks

Actually I would have thought the same thing, but after playing a Wildwood Spec LP the last 4 months I have grown to love their underwound pickups. I am hoping these new ones are the same thing, or close to the WW Spec pickups. You wouldn't believe how hard it has been getting an absolute answer to this question.

Well one thing I would like to see is a more late 63/64 type neck and the step at the heel or offer the smooth heel and a stepped heel like some of the SG/LP Customs they make have. I know the USA model SGLP has a stepped heel but its more modern looking than a correct era 64 type heel. Thing is Gibson Custom is using the long nickle vibrato/vibrola so why not make it like a 63/64. I'm sue they have sold a ton of the smooth heel models anyway. Maybe if they would make little changes on other models like this it might boost some sales.
