    It may have ben posted tens of time but I didn't find a clear answer.
    May anybody tell me when this True Historic with S/N 976xx was produced?
    Does the 7 stands for 2017?
    Thanks a lot.

    Yes, if it's a TH, that would be a 2017.

    Thanks a lot.
    I don't know what to do about this guitar. I could buy it at the same price as a 2016 Standard Historic...

    All you get out of that serial number is it's the 6xx-th 59 reissue made in 2017.

    That's what I thought but I just wanted confirmation. thanks!

    So, my question is now: If you could get a 1959 TH for almost the same price as a Standard Historic, what would you do?

    I would buy the one I liked better. Can you play them first? If not, buy the one with the prettier top and better weight for you. TH should have better resale.

    Can you post pics of both guitars?

    The 2 guitars are sold online, I can't see them with my own eyes and it will be difficult to order both and send one back.
    I'm posting pictures right away.
