So I put a vintage 1984 National Semiconductor LM308N in my Fat Rat...

... and I can't really tell any difference at all between that, a newer LM308N and the original OP07.

I'm sure the chip is important, but I really don't think there's any magic in there.

I did the same to my Fat Rat. Kind of just liked the stock one. Lol. Not much difference at all.

what is a "1984 National semiconductor LM308" and why would it be any different to a regular LM308 chip?

I got a chip off Ebay from Germany and did this too. I have also seen multiple demos, and read a few posts saying that it doesn't make much of a difference and that most people can't tell. I don't think I can either-- or maybe just a little-- but probably not at all. :)

But dammit, I just like having it in there!

Tolerances in ICs play a roll, but the artwork is still the same between a vintage LM308N and a current, you won't really notice a difference.
