A USAF Instructor Pilot (Like a T-38 instructor-- small plane) has to undergo the same G-force training as all the other fighter pilots do right?

That depends. You go to the fuge after select the type of aircraft that you will be flying. There are certain aircraft specific G profiles that you will undergo in the fuge. This is according to a buddy of mine who is now flying Echos.

Back to the meat of your question. If the instructor pilot comes from a fighter community then he or she has undergone the fuge from way back when. If they are a FAIP (First Assignment IP) it is my understanding that they haven't. Mind you this is for T-38s.

That being said you could throw the T-37, T-6, and T-1 in there. None of those do you need G training for. It's a build as you go type of thing, especially for the helo guys that fly T-6s now.
Believe it or not T-37 has the highest G onset rate of any USAF aircraft. The T-6 can pull some good numbers too, enough that there is a G-suit system in the a/c. The primary trainers (ie. Tweet, Texan, and Tormentor) are where most pilots develop their G tolerance.

Don't forget the squids. The T-34 has blacked students out at 3Gs before. IIRC a aerospace physio LT told me that the T-34 GLOCs more aircrew than any other fleet airplane.

So I guess T-38 instructor pilots (first assignment) simply develop G-tolerance as they go... I guess they do okay...

You can get a T-34 to do that, sure...it's got a fast wing and you can be pulling out of a speedy dive before you know it. Now some of the older A's and B's on the civ market are restricted G-wise but I'm sure the C's are out there doing +4/-2 or so all day.
