Does The Custom Shop Make The Memphis 1961 ES-335 Historic Reissue?

I am looking at picking up a Memphis 1961 ES-335 Reissue Limited Run in Historic Burst 2018 (here's a page from CME for general reference I am looking at a guitar in the same line, not this one in particular.) and am finding it hard to figure out if this was made by the custom shop. The COA doesn't say custom shop, but I have read that historics are custom shops. I also phoned Gibson and was told it was made in Memphis and historics tend to be custom shops, but he didn't sound 100% on it. Has anyone looked into this model and know definitively?

Custom shop Gibsons come with a printed folder and a sticker on the back of the neck that says, "Gibson custom".
