Here are a few changes to the 2017 historic line based on my conversation with a Gibson rep at NAMM. Standard Historic will inherit the TH plastics (pickup covers still look like non TH spec to me) and binding color. Dish carve looks significantly flatter to my eyes. You can choose your dish carve if you go M2M. There's a new nitro that is the thinnest CS has used. The standard historics here were excellent. The necks had that nice roll the TH had. I don't know if that's a new feature or if these necks just happen to be that way. Updates to follow.
