I may be mistaken, but it looks like the 2013 version had the JB/59 combo and the 2014 version has the Nazgul/Sentient combo. If anyone here has tried both, which pickup combo do you think sounds better on this particular guitar?
I would be using the guitar mainly for older (80s/90s) metal, primarily rhythm. Thanks a lot.

The JB/59 is a lower output set compared to the Naz/Sen, and it should work better for (Generalizing) scooped mids non tight not djenty metal. The Naz/Sen works better for higher output modern/prog/djent metal
