    Post and tell us about your favorite historic(s)

    As mentioned in other recent threads, all my current Historics are from '99 and '00 due to woods, neck carve, fret size, and burst finishes. If I have to pick just one, then this '00 R9 may be the current favorite. It's just about perfect in every way with the top that changes from quilt to...

    What year is your favorite Historic?

    Looks like a 2001 based on the inlays and the serial number.

    What year is your favorite Historic?

    I have no opinion on it one way or the other since never played or owned one from '12. In fact, the most recent year I owned was '09 and haven't been interested enough to own '10 and later.

    What year is your favorite Historic?

    My overall favs are '99 - '00 for the woods used (type of mahogany and some have MRW or BRW-looking boards) and the burst finishes supposedly done by one particular employee who passed away in the mid '00. Thinner bindings and "correct" TP and tuner locations compared to previous years are nice...

    Questionable Reverb listing - but what is it?

    I don’t think ‘95s came with COAs, I don’t remember seeing COAs until ‘99/‘00. So that COA may be a “new” one done later by CS or someone else.

    Questionable Reverb listing - but what is it?

    I don't think it's a 3 piece top. It's the rings/grains on the toggle side lining up that make it look like there's another seam, but I don't see a clear seam there on other pics of the top. Looks right to me for early - mid '90s Historic, i.e. inlays, fretboard, tenon, plastics, tailpiece...

    Are the reissues getting closer to boutique & vintage?

    I’m stuck on ‘99s and ‘00s, I must be a relic…
