B, C or D depending on the actual guitar & project.
My Replica is a very light B - C, for want of a better term. Hardly any wear on the body.
My custom made Strats & Teles are all D's.
My forthcoming Retrospec is a C - D; i.e. light parts aging etc. no finish checking.
As for my Historics, I have Gloss, VOS & Murphy Aged.............probably prefer Gloss except for several Murphy Aged Les Pauls that were done (IMHO) really well. The VOS is give or take but can easily be removed as we all know.
