    Nope, not even TH specs. They won't be any more valuable than the 13's on up in the used market.

    :rofl:No, i don't have an opinion against anyone, it doesn't matter what these guitars are called (to me personally), but it seems to have an ill affect on everyone that don't like what i say about these guitars. You have the option to believe what you want.:D

    The guitar won't care what you call it.:laugh2:

    Oh,.... and to stir the pot some more,...........
    Who is doing the labeling?..............you or Gibson?.........

    And what i meant by "any of them" was all historics from 2013 thru the 2017 "custom shop standard" nothing about them will make them more valuable.;)
    There are just too many of them.

    And you named this thread "2017 Custom Shop Les Paul Standard vs Historic Reissue"
    You're just asking for one of them to get its ass kicked. Verses, as in a challenge. Now that's just rude to people who don't own a 2017, is it not?
    Ok,....let's say you meant "compared to" instead of verses, but your intent is obvious.

    My 2cents. Recently looking for a R8 (ended up surprisingly with a CC#7 which is amazing) and played a bunch of 13/14, 2016 and 2017's. There's definitely something about the 2017's you don't get with the 13/14's and 2016's. Part of it is the added TH stuff that's been mentioned. Additionally the finish on the back of the 2017 neck is slightly duller in color than the rest of the body. Which looks great. The Gibson logo on the 2017 headstock is ambered like the TH's and the binding has that nice yellowing to it that the other reissues don't have. Fit and finish is definitely better than the 13/14's and 2016's. The 2017's feel more like the TH and CC's I've played than the other regular reissues. I can see 2017's being more sought after one day for sure. (oh boy he went there) If buying another "Historic" (because the 2017's are DEFINITELY Historics ;)) I'd go 2017 over 13/14 and last would be a 2016 due to the serial number thing. (I know that's superficial and stupid but hey, that's why we're here) I'll walk myself out. :io:

    Curious- what is the "serial # thing" you speak of on the
    2016's?
