NHGD 2002 H150 (Custom?)

Yesterday, 07:17 PM

Posted by tsp17 in Heritage Guitars

2002 Heritage H150 Trans Cherry, Ebony Fretboard, Seth Lovers, Locking Grover Tuners.  I think I am the third owner.  I assume it was a custom order as I've not seen this configuration before.  I don't usually go for such a bright top, or gold hardware, but this one is a very sweet guitar.  As a package (red top, ebony board, cream binding/pickguard, black speed knobs and gold hardware) the overall look is very cool.The Seths sound fantastic as usual.  It doesn't replace the ALSB 150 I reluctantly sold a while back, it's different.   Happily, it is a little lighter than a lot of H150s I've played, weighing in at a manageable 8.8 lbs.  


I'd describe this one as highly musical.  


My jazz guitars are strung with 12's, so after a good cleaning and a needed fretboard conditioning, i put a new set of TI BeBop round-wound 11's on it and it really sounds great.  A little bigger and more "Hi-Fi" with these strings than what was on it.  Sounds truly exceptional through my Princeton Reverb Reissue.  Even through my solid state jazz amps it sounds great, but it took some tweaking to bring it to life there.  It could easily be a jazz guitar, the tones are warm and full through the neck pickup, so i'll use it as backup for my jazz gigs  (or even sneak it into the lineup for the right setting).  With pedals the neck gets big and dirty and the bridge pickup can sing or sting depending on how you set it.  It is an absolutely awesome fusion guitar and delivers on classic rock sounds too.    Super versatile in what it can do.  Neck is medium-slim.  Just right for me.


I'm pretty happy with this one.

BASS Pedal Board lives!

23 Sep 2015

Posted by tbonesullivan in Amplification and Effects

So, I finally got off my butt, took out the george L cables I bought like 2 years ago, got some more 6 inch dual right angle cables, and went to work with my Pedaltrain board. It's not exactly neat, and I don't know if I'll really clean up the power lines, but it definitely is sweet. Everything a bass player needs, in my opinion.


Now I just need to get around to making a GUITAR pedal board, which is a bunch more complex, as I have to figure out how to mount the damn giant WAH pedal.

I need a crash course in Mesa Boogie Amps

01 Jul 2015

Posted by HANGAR18 in Amplification and Effects

I need a crash course in Mesa Boogie Amps. From what I can tell, they are all STUPID expensive when new but on the used market, some models are discontinued by the manufacturer and the used value is in the basement. I'm inclined to think that Mesa Boogie, along with every other manufacturer of fill in the blank, is not immune from making the occasional dud that either, no one likes or that is a piece of junk suffering from an incurable bad design. So, I'm sure that each model of Mesa Boogie amp will have its own unique tone flavor, but I just don't want to buy the first Mesa I see and then have buyers remorse later. So, for those of you who know anything about this brand of amp, what would you say are the most desirable models and which are the ones to stay away from? 


BTW, the most recent model I looked at from a Craigslist ad was called a...

MESA BOOGIE STILETTO ACE 1x12 50 WATT TUBE AMP where the asking price was $800.00

The idea is that I want to have less half-stacks in my humble abode, because I don't like big and heavy things as much as I used to and the idea of downsizing to a smaller amp seemed like a good idea. But if I am going to do a trade, the actual value of each needs to be at least close to equal so that is the part of the equation which comes after trying to figure out which Mesa amps are the better ones.
