I was talking to an owner of a music store (who used to carry Gibsons) and the topic of long/short neck tenons came up. He mentioned the term "advanced neck tenon" to describe the tenon on Custom shop guitars that did not have a long tenon. I thought that tenons were long, short, or "transitional" aka roughly 1969-75?

Anyone ever hear the term "Advanced Tenon"??? And if so, what exactly is it?

Don't the custom shop LP customs have the advanced tenon? I think it is longer than the short tenon, but shorter than the long tenon. I'm not totally sure though.

Its possible he didn't know what he was talking about. He might have just read something about a longer neck tennon in Historics and used his own term of advanced... I have never heard of this before.

That's why he's not a Gibson dealer anymore...he just doesn't know the Gibson Story! ;)

I was told this by the guys in the Gibson Touring Show Mobile Display at the LI guitar show.
