    Ah, got it, thanks!
    Considered that briefly but didn't think the tension would actually go higher if dropping a full step, even though I recently figured out it does on flattops, if the gauge difference is extreme enough.

    Does anyone know roughly the serial number range when the 90's S100 reissues changed from the 1 5/8" neck with the Mueller bridge to the wider neck width and the Gotoh bridge?
    93' S100
    02' X180
    96' X170

    Not sure about the serial, but I think only the few very early ones had the Mueller and the more narrow nut. Anything post ‘94 would be wider with the tune-o-matic
    '73 S-100 Walnut
    '79 S-300 Ash
    '96 S-100 Black
    '96 S-100 Cherry
    '98 Jet-Star (DeArmond by Guild) Tyrian Purple
