there comes a point of no return....

Posted by mark555 in mark555's Blog, 20 May 2017 - - - - - - · 56 views

there comes a point of no return.... Where on earth do I start with today's entry? I seriously don't know where to start on this one.
 
The news of the band is that after six weeks out, our superb drummer Allen has returned to playing with us. It's great to have him back, I know exactly when he will hit the beat and when to come in. I've missed his playing. Although, through having a de...

Recording set up.

Posted by peteraltongreen in peteraltongreen's Blog, 08 April 2016 - - - - - - · 753 views

I generally don't do much recording now. I know I should, but I prefer a live performance, and it's done, however good or bad. I was asked by a pal to do a jazz rhythm track to compliment his Hammond B3.He's making a C.D., so when he sells it, shortly, he'll have a record of how great it sounded. All the instrumental work was done, even an original guide...

Third gig - great guitar, sad occasion: funeral

Posted by Gerben in Gerben's H575, 22 January 2016 - - - - - - · 733 views

Played at a very dear frend's funeral with my good friend and fellow musician Frank Janssen.
Because we did some singing, I needed the Fishman once more.
First use of the mike on that one. Mike and guitar sounded very very good!
So the feedback issues must have been due to the small room and not-so-smart place of the amp. Thanks for the advice!
We did the...

'04 Prospect

Posted by falcon47 in falcon47's Blog, 20 November 2015 - - - - - - · 594 views

After years of drooling over these guitars, I've finally gotten my hands
on a beautiful '04 Prospect. It has the red sunburst finish, which I have never
seen on another one. I knew it was going to be good, but it's better than that.
The neck is just right, and it has Lollar humbuckers, immaculate condition.
I had to trade a nice guitar plus an amp for it,...

Reflections of PSP VIII

Saturday I sold my Peavey Bandit to an older gentlemen that recently lost his job.  He had been on the prowl for a Peavey Bandit USA Red Stripe model because they sound better than the older USA models.  Couldn’t help but agree with him.  As we sat there for nearly an hour talking about guitars, amps, and the thirst that can never be...

Heritage Hand Written Serial Numbers

Posted by Griffo888 in Griffo888's Blog, 16 July 2015 - - - - - - · 1,061 views

As a very proud but still relatively new member to the Heritage family, I'm wondering if anyone can please explain why some serial numbers on Heritage guitars are hand written while others (like the one on my gorgeous 2002 Burnt Amber H-555) are stamped onto the back of the head stock? Just curious!

I still believe I can get the number of 6 string electric guitars down to two or three.
But Im way past thinking its easy.

Just an observation...

I find that the more I play the guitars I have, the less GAS develops.

After a five month wait, I  just received my custom ordered Heritage golden eagle what a sweet beauty!  I'd like to share a photo with club members but I'm a computer dummy. I have a camera and can put the photos in a comuter file and have sent photos to  e-mail addresses but that's the extent of my knowledge. Any sugges...

It is time for Rolling Thunder again (tomorrow). Kinda like the Superbowl of motorcycles for the Washington DC area. This is where half a million motorcycles from around this country, Canada and other countries as well descend upon our nation's capital for "The Ride to the Wall". Meaning we ride as an organized group to the Vietnam Veteran's memorial in W...

Unhappy Customer looking for an answer from The Heritage team.

Finish, H535

Unhappy Customer looking for an answer from The Heritage team. Dear Heritage team,
 
I am writing you because I'm quite unhappy about a guitar that I bought not so long ago. Indeed, I bought this year a H535 model that sounds amazing and has beautiful back and sides but the job on the binding and black dots on the edge is just disgraceful for the price I paid. I bought it new on eBay from Route 7 Music. I...

Modern Music

Spring is here and I'm once again looking for new ways to stir up creativity.
 
This spring I'm challenging myself into writing and recording with more frequency and less self-scrutiny. Bottom line is that practice makes perfect if I ever want to grow as a musician and as a songwriter.
 
I've been leaning on newer music for inspiration lately an...

Greetings Heritage owners!  I have owned several Heritage instruments and I have 3 at this time.  I began playing in 1960 and had several local bands during the 60's.  My first guitar was a cheap flat top and my first electric was a bright orange Framus that I used for several years.  Because I was born and raised in Kalamazoo I knew a...

Gig at the KIA

This time we were lucky enough to have Aaron playing with us - he drove up, basically from Huntington WV. He arrived just in time to help us set up on the KIA stage. We had hoped to play a couple songs at the soundcheck to dial in the sound and get reacquainted, but no dice. The powers that be rushed down the stairs when we started to play and said we had...

Heritage Guitar Info

good morning from the shaky side

CA members, member map, portal

It's morning in CA. I just looked at the HOC member map and there's a good group here in CA. I've been here for 20 years as a resident. Have also resided in Japan, Florida, Massachusetts, New Orleans LA, New York, and my hometown is Charm City, Ballmer MD. As a 6 yr old kid I was the early riser in my house. I'd switch on WMAR at 6:55 am so I could gaze a...

So, there's a scofield jsm100 up on ebay. seller says it has a solid wood top. i write to seller, ahem, you describe your guitar as a 335 type (laminate top) and your listing (jsm 100) as a solid maple top and bottom, but ahem, your guitar has a laminate top. seller responds saying his boss at the store where he teaches guitar says it's solid so it's soli...

Our musical path starts somewhere...

Music has always been a strong presence in my life. It has always been around. There are lots of  musicians on both sides of my family: my paternal grandfather played acoustic guitar; my mom's youngest brother plays guitar, there are professional musicians on both sides of the family, my parents are very decent singers, so is my sister, I consider myself...
