    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.)
