NGD: 2014 H-535 Translucent Wine

Yesterday, 07:14 PM

Posted by HANGAR18 in Heritage Guitars

NGD: 2014 H-535 in a Translucent Wine finish. Just received it today. It's uncanny how it is always raining whenever I bring home a new guitar. I'll take some actual photos of the guitar myself, but till then, I'm attaching some of the dealer's photos. 

 

It was painful to part with the last 535 that I had and I did so with the intention of replacing it with another one.

After having already bought one brand new Heritage guitar this year, I never expected to buy another one so soon but this is it. Mission accomplished.

This one came from Wolfe Guitars in South Florida. I was there in person two Saturdays ago but made the decision to buy this one after I had returned home to Virginia and given it a lot of thought. 

 

Here is an excerpt which includes the specs from their web site.

 

"A rich & beautiful translucent Wine Red finish on well flamed maple

body, and with all the good stuff we special order- Seymour Duncan's
most popular model 59 humbuckers, TonePros bridge & stop bar, special
CTS Control Pots w/ Spraque caps, Hand bound & Lacquered Rock Maple
pickguard, AAA Indian Rosewood fingerboard on real Honduran Mahogany
neck, cream color binding, Grover keys, REAL Nitrocellulose Lacquer
finish and a fine logo hardshell case."

 

I believe this will complete my Heritage guitar collection so I guess I'll also need to shoot a family photo too.

Another recording test with the H575 ... trying something...

18 Oct 2014

Posted by jimsoloway in Heritage Guitars

This is just a  really short clip I did this afternoon as a recording test trying something completely different.  I picked up a used Gallien-Krueger BM200 micro head today.  This runs direct form the BM200 to the recording interface.  The guitar is running through a TC Electronics Arena reverb pedal and I ran a bass boom control EQ patch in the recording software.

 

I really like the results.  I'm not sure if I'll keep the amp but it's taking in me in a much more traditional solid state direction and that seems to work well with this guitar.

FT/FS Guild Bluesbird

21 Oct 2014

I've had this advertised on TGP for a few days now and had some interest as well, but with my lack of credentials there people seem a bit wary. As I found recently myself TGP isn't exactly the safest place to trade... by far not as safe as HOC anyway.

 

I really had to have this guitar, but now that I have it it's not living up to the expectations I had of it (you know the feeling?) and I'm looking to flip it.

 

So here goes:

 

It's a Guild Bluesbird in black.

 

As far as I can tell it was made by Fender, after their acquisition of Westerly, but I'm not entirely sure as it's difficult to find info on these axes. Inside the boyd, there is a short central block in which the pickups sit and the rest is completely hollow. As a result it is quite lightweight and sounds bright and airy. It feels and looks slightly bigger bodied than your standard LP.

 

It sounds really good, but I'm pretty sure it would sound even better with lower output pickups and updated electronics. I have no idea what the stock pickups are on these, but they are HOT. The pots look like generic pieces and the caps are probably ceramic. That's not to say it doesn't sound good as is, but I bet it could sound a lot better with that hollow construction.

 

The neck is medium, slightly going towards fat. It wouldn't earn the DB seal of approval, but it feels very similar to the neck on your standard Heritage 150: quite comfy. The frets aren't super tall and have plenty of life left, with no irregular wear on them. There is no buzzing or choking as far as I can tell.

 

Comes with original hard case and owner's manual.

 

Here are some pics.

I would sell it for $920 inclusive shipping to the US, but am open to offer. I'm also looking for trades, specifically Gibby LP or SG, but am also open to other potential trades.
