NGD: Thom Van Hoose's Super Eagle arrives...

Yesterday, 08:52 PM

Posted by 2bornot2bop in Heritage Guitars

I'll have to do some more research, but there's a possibility this may be the first Super Eagle built by Heritage. Thom Van Hoose, author of the Gibson Super 400 book, commissioned this guitar in 1989 after getting wind that Heritage was ready to create an acoustic Super Eagle. If this isn't the first, it's very near it. 

 

 

 

On page 134 of the Super 400 book Thom refers to this SE as light....that's an understandment...it's lighter than my acoustic Golden Eagle!

 

Page 134 reads:

 

"The Heritage Super Eagle made its official debut in 1988 as an electric guitar only.

In late 1988 Peter Wagener of LaVonne Wagener Music in Savage, MN, heard that Heritage might be offering an acoustic version of the Super Eagle guitar for sale. He ordered, sight unseen, an acoustic cutaway Super Eagle in natural finish with select woods for me.

I communicated directly with James Deurloo and Bill Paige of Heritage on certain aspects of the guitar's design. Deurloo stated that they were going to make the acoustic Super Eagle in very limited quantities, and that my particular guitar would have an X-braced top of select spruce, with a select, book matched curly maple back and curly maple rims. The top and back would be tap-tuned to achieve further acoustic resonance and balance.

When this instrument was completed, it was delivered to me with a Gibson BJB floating pickup with tone and volume control fixed to the pickguard. This particular instrument has an exceptional acoustic tone and is a very light-weight guitar for an instrument of its size."

 ...lost the light before delivery so these will have to do...

FS: BG pups lizards

12 Oct 2014

I bought this set of lizards from Brian back in 2012. They were to go in my LP Firebrand, but it turned out that the routing wouldn't allow pickups with covers. When I took one of the covers off I found out that Brian had got my order wrong and had made them with white bobbins instead of cream ones. I have had the pups sitting around unused ever since. Time for them to move on to somebody who will use them. The neck pup needs the cover reattached otherwise they're in new condition. Chrome covers. Four conductor wire for coil tapping. I have mounting screws, but strangely can't find the springs... Pictures are available here: http://www.dropbox.c...tDJXgK-z2a?dl=0 I'll attach pictures to the thread later, because tapatalk sucks for doing that. $115 Shipped. PayMeAHeftyFeePal gift please.


"tap stalk" above should have been "tapatalk"... and it completely screws up the formatting of posts as well it seems :(
 
Here are some pics of the pups.
