    I concur with your findings. The 2017s are amaze balls.

    I'll take whatever 3 you currently aren't playing. Love or hate Tom Murphy, but that dude can spray a guitar

    I just checked out 6 Murphy painted and aged TH9s that came in to my regular dealer and they are killer.
    Yes Murphy can sure spray a guitar.
    The color is great on these.One even had a wild quilted top that was just stunning.
    It looked like 6 old bursts lined up in a row.......man.

    I’m on the fence of buying one of the new 2017 reissues or an older one if I can find a good deal. Anybody can school me on the fret size of the 2017 standards? Are they the same size as the true historics or more like the 2014 historics?

    The MTM standards are like the True Historic fret size and the Standards from the beginning of the year had 2014 fret size.

    I contacted a dealer about Made 2 Measure recently and they told me that acc. to their Gibson reps, medium jumbo frets have always been used on Historics. I specifically asked about the possibility to somehow specify TH frets on a build.

    Did the Standard Historics also have the same wire as THs? The difference maybe being the finishing process?

    (MTM Standards=recent dealer runs? And begnning of the year Standards=the lightly figured/figured Standard on their website? There are now quite a few ”Standards“ hitting EU stores as well.)

    All in all I think 2017 was a fine year.

    Well, I got this 2017 '58 thingy, and it is a monster. Seriously, it's a freaking monster. Got it as an almost accident from Wildwood. It's kinda a cross between a True Historic and a CC #29.

    I'm calling it "The Monster," because it is so good. The frets are a little lower than a regular R8, but it makes intonation absolutely perfect. I can hammer the hell out of it, and it stays in tune.

    The neck is superb, in between a '58 and a '59. With the rolled binding, it just plays itself. It ain't flashy, but it looks good, and plays better.


    I waited a few weeks to post this, just to make sure that it wasn't a honeymoon kinda deal. It ain't. This thing is a monster.

    Later,

    Jay

    What's the serial number Jay?

    If it is in between 8 7540 and 8 7569 it is a repurposed CC 29V.

    WW just added 4 more to their Holiday Sale Page.

    My avatar is 8 7562 from the same repurposed CC29V run and it is a very nice specimen of TH goodness.

    As you've mentioned (as have I in other threads) the 'feel' of these TH CC '58 LPs is really something special.

    Mine has gotten my undivided attention since it arrived. :jam:

    Most of these have really dark boards and if you look at Tamio Akudo's original '59 that CC29 is patterned after a lot of them have that mid top figure with prominent grain to either side.

    Congrats! :cheers:

    (it's really a '15 tho... just saying...)

    All these share the same 'erased' area of finish below the serial number where the
    "CC29V
    XXX "
    used to reside. Your headstock shot shows that area that was left 'lighter'.

    There's a couple more of these that some other MLP folks scored. Hopefully they'll show up here too. :fingersx:

    That board is sweet! :applause:

    WWs pics don't do these fret boards justice.
