    I had been looking for a Standard Historic 59 as my first step into reissues and the Custom Shop experience. One of my local dealers, Brian's Guitars in Cheshire, CT, had just gotten a used 2016 CS Standard in Iced Tea VOS, so I went into take a look. Loved the guitar and they made me a good deal and now I am the proud owner of this beauty:

    I hear you! This one is an upgrade from a 2016 Traditional. I guess the next step is a True Historic!

    It's a meaty C shape to me. Not a thin neck, but not too deep. I have a PRS McCarty with a wide-fat neck. To me my R9 and my McCarty have similar "fat" necks, but the R9 is more C shaped and the McCarty is a bit more D shaped.

    Wow - love the way the mineral streaks and vertical grain follow the dish carve.
