Is there any difference between a DGT from 2011 and one from 2013?

Tuners, finish (nitro vs. V12...some may still be nitro?)

I thought V12 was late 2010 onwards?

The wiring also changed in 2012:

Note the addition of the resistors between the coil tap and ground (different values for bass and treble PUs). This is so the "off" coil isn't completely grounded, and you still get a little bit of hum-cancelling, less volume drop, and a tonal change.

You're probably right on that. Wasn't sure if it was 2011 or 2010, thus my question mark.

I only know because my NF3 is Dec '10 and it has V12. I checked before I bought it, V12 was introduced at Exp 10.

Still listed as "DGT" so I left that one alone!

So it would seem that I would be better off finding a new one for the wiring change at least. Wildwood has a really cool faded blue 10-top w/birds but it is a 2011.

If it was a late 2011 it may have the new wiring. My DGT manufactured on 12/09 2011 has the new layout. Just got it and was happy to see the resistors etc. - the shop owner opened it up prior to my purchase.

So the new wiring is just some changes involving the resistors? To improve the single coil sounds?

I haven't been keeping up...
