Is it the same thing? my club says W on the top. My old set said G on the top. same degree wedge or different?

Again, no industry standard on this. Is varies by manufacturer.

 

For example, Titleist AP1 and AP2: P = pitching wedge / W = gap wedge

 

For Callaway iron models that go above PW, the next one up is AW rather than GW.

Stands for Approach Wedge.  Again, no industry standard, but generally another name for a Gap Wedge.

Ping calls it a "U" (Utility) wedge - same thing.  PW is 45*, UW is 50* - same general idea as a "Gap" or "Approach" wedge from other manufacturers.
