    But for 2018 at least, they still offer the "USA Standard" and the HP standard. So if there is a 2018 CS Standard (my money says there will be, even if in small qty to a handful of dealers) the confusion will remain....it's the Henry way! :hyper:

    Other than name I don't think it's much confusion. The USA Standards have the huge serial numbers and "Made in the USA" stamped on the back of the headstock. The Custom Shop Standards will more than likely keep with the Historic Reissue style serial that starts with 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, etc... and have the Custom Shop toggle cover plate on the back.

    I hear that Standards will have their serial #'s start with "HEN" and Custom Shops with "RY".

    When market swings happen in your area of interest you become the buyer and hold off pin selling.

    I've done pretty well this past summer buying guitars. I've noticed guitar prices are lower in the summer and higher and the winter.

    I figure at some point in the not too distant future the raw materials will become more scarce and we'll see even more a lk ternative woods being used. Fender is building many of their guitars with alternative woods. This will become the norm shortly.

    When it does we'll hopefully see a rebound on the older guitars made with the 'proper' woods. I think that time is closer than we think it is. :hmm:

    Nope, but that is 2012 R9 that was at the store after you bought the R0, almost identical except no reflectors. This was used and had all the paper work and a grand less:D

    Yeah, I thought it would be a good candidate for a historic makeover but I ended up falling in love the way it is. It plays and sounds awesome. Now I have my eyes out for other 2012s. Go figure.

    I should add that the EP guitar center went to extremes to make up for that R0 debacle, but I have not been there since. I do frequent a mom & pop shop in Cruces called Mountain Music, really cool place to shop. Just don't try to buy strings there, but a vintage and custom gear hot spot.:thumb:
