    Nashville is the only place for the Historic.

    Bodies are made in Memphis then sent to Nashville where they are mated to the neck & finished.

    Some CS 335s are from Memphis but no Historics.

    I believe that is so.
    There were questions about this in the past that Gibson was non-committal on giving an accurate response but finally they (forget the guys name) did answer in the affirmative what you wrote; maple/maple/maple.
