Does Heritage Sell Replacement Cases?

Since you guys know *everything*....


Can I get a replacement 535 case from Heritage? 


Best to go through a dealer? 


Any idea of cost?

Help me "Joe Pass" myself!

Yesterday, 04:03 AM

Posted by Jackie65 in Heritage Guitars

So, I have just finished watching the Joe Pass/Ella Fitzgerald concert on You Tube for the bazillionth time!  

I would buy a new ES-175 tomorrow if I had the money!  What say the masses about my best option around the 2k mark?  


On my radar so far:  

2004 Gibson ES-137 on EBay for auction at $2000 (so far, closes tomorrow night)

1977 Gibson ES-137 on Reverb for $2500 ("different tuners, visable fret wear up to the 12th fret but doesn't affect playability" they say)

1997 575 Custom on Reverb for $1725 but it's had "minor neck repair" that looks like it was cracked through almost?!

____ 575 Custom FS and on EBay for $2399 (doesn't say what year and doesn't say if it has a case,
                 shows a lot of pick wear on the pickups, otherwise might be nice)


I like the idea of the Gibson as what all the old famous cats I like enjoyed to play, but worry about getting a dog as I will be buying sight-unplayed.  I like the 575's but only when they have the custom inlays (I know, I know, but I like's ma fancy fretboard bling).  Open to all ideas you have to get me a good ax!  I have not played a Heritage, just read all the goodness about them.  I am okay with not buying a Gibby just because of the name if I can get the sweet sound from something else.  If you think I'll be unhappy unless it's a true Gibson then let me know that too or anything else you think I should consider!  No snobbery here, genuinely don't know what I should do with my dough for now.  If only I'd had this desire 30 years ago when it was cheaper right?!

Top wrapping and buzz

23 Apr 2017

Posted by gpuma in Heritage Guitars
I never top wrapped my strings but I thought I just experimented a bit since I had to restring all of my axes anyway.
H357: no problem
H535: no problem
H150: the D string buzzed a lot. I tried to adjust the string heights with some improvement but the buzz is still there. It doesn't make any sense to me.
The height of the saddles does not change so why would I have to change the height of the string if I top wrap?

Any idea?
