    Who here owns both versions of the G5420t?

    Is there any difference in the neck angle between them?

    I've read claims that the neck angle was changed between the versions.

    I've owned a 2016 G5420T and still own my 2012.

    Yes there is a slight difference in pitch, but nothing significant. I don't have measurements for the 2016, it's sold on. I also don't have my 2012 with me, it's in Tejas. The reason I it seems taller/slightly steeper is the fact I needed a pickup ring riser to elevate the chrome plates. This was the only way I could adjust the Blacktops near the strings.

    No such problems with the 2016, even when I installed T-Armonds and Setzers.
