NAMM surprise, blessing and new project! Naked wood w...

Today, 12:22 AM

Posted by Millennium Maestro in Heritage Guitars

So I was blessed to attend NAMM again this year, on day one Jim looks at me and says "Wanna go look at some wood?"

Sure!!

 

So off we go, I get to see Jim work the floor and go and see other vendors he has relationships with. Jim has a way of making everyone feel important and I was lucky enough to be part of it, but can you imagine what its like to be looking through wood blanks with "The Master".... It was frickin amazing! Jim loves good wood and flames. This one guy from California had some planks he was drooling over.

 

So we go to another booth, I see this board with some really cool flames and I am like "Jim, you see that chevron pattern... I really think wood like that is cool!"

The Master starts, I could do this with it and we could do that with it and you could have this..... "You should buy it!"

 

I bought it.... now I have to figure what I want built!  I didnt know that was gonna happen for sure!

 

Anyways, I wanted to share a really cool moment in  my life! Hope you enjoyed!

BOSE Computer and TV Speakers

Today, 02:17 AM

Posted by HANGAR18 in Amplification and Effects

I figure that most of us like to listen to product sound samples and tone demos here in the HOC (especially Brent's Guitar Emporium hahaha) so I thought I would mention the BOSE Computer and TV Speakers that I use in case anyone is interested.

 

On my computer I'm using the Companion® 2 Series III multimedia speaker system. These are the best computer speakers I have ever heard and they are reasonably priced. No huge woofer box needed so you get huge sound in a very small footprint.

On my 42" TV for watching Blu-ray concerts and stuff, I'm using the Bose® Solo 15 TV sound system. It's like a short pedestal for your flat panel TV which has everything inside of it. Again, a very small footprint and no external woofer cabinet.  The Bose® Solo 15 is the biggest of the Solo's that they make and has more speakers than earlier versions. Crystal clear sound at high volume which can not only be heard at the opposite end of the room but it gets loud enough to risk a complaint from the neighbors. hahaha Fits under most TVs 46” to 50” or you can put it on a shelf under your TV.

The biggest selling points for both of these is the combination of great sound, small footprint and affordable price tags.

Noob saying hello.

Hello all. 

 

This is my first post and I had a couple of questions, so I thought I'd ask you all before calling Heritage. 

 

I am getting closer to being able to pull the trigger on a guitar I've wanted for a number of years: the Millennium Ultra STD. I guess you folks call them "millies?" I played one in a guitar shop 15 years ago or so and just fell in love with it. It was fairly tricked out; ebony board, wood laminate pick guard, gold hardware, etc. It had block inlays, but they were only the borders of the rectangle if that makes any sense. 

 

So here goes. Firstly, has the neck carve changed much in the history of this particular guitar? Secondly, how is the weight balance on the guitar? What I mean to ask is, when you strap this guitar on while standing, does it stay put? I've played a number of smaller-bodied semi-hollows that, when you take your hands off of the guitar, are somewhat "unbalanced" (in that the neck wants to slide down and point toward the floor, and the player ends up sort of "holding" the neck in playing position). 

 

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time!
