    I just picked up a mint 2007 Studio vintage mahogany w/ factory BB pros. I also have a 2016 with BB pros. I intend on sitting down to conduct a direct comparison of the two BUT hasn't happened yet.

    What I'm curious about is the construction of the pickups. Does anyone know if Gibson made any production changes to them between 2007 and 2016? If so, any thoughts on how it would effect tone?

    I'm pretty sure I read a post on MLP describing a change in the wire Gibson used between then and now.

    Any insight would be appreciated (other than to ditch the pro's ;))
