  1. I'd arm wrestle you for it if it wasn't blue. Other than the bass boat flake ASAT Z3, I don't do blue guitars.
  2. Is that all from the factory, Ron? Gold, bound flat-top? That is too cool for school. Are the back and sides natural? I don't remember seeing that one.
  3. +1 on Fender Rumble. I have a Rumble 200 Combo that is far, far more amp than I need for my meager low-end talents. That being said, it was recommended to me by a professional (he gets paid!) bass player acquaintance. So there's that.
  4. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, @TalismanRich, beneath that silly blue Twitter logo, there should be a drop down that says "Theme" (with a dark down arrow pointer thing next to it). Is it not there for you?
  5. @TalismanRich reported an error when using the Chameleon (Dark) theme. I've uploaded the updated version for the new version of IPB.
  6. Latest updates to the IPB software fix some security issues, add some features. There is now a "Clubs" link up on the main menu. I haven't spelunked too far in to that, but it seems like functionality with some real potential. For what remains to be seen. PHP has also been updated to v7.2 (v7.1 was a requirement for IPB 4.4) and the most egregiously offensive modules--security-wise anyway--have been disabled. Any of you old timers remember the time the original board got hacked? Good times, for sure. Where did the last 12 years go? Ah, anyway... Lastly, Tapatalk integration has been fixed. I'd received a few notes that it was not working, though it didn't seem to affect everyone. I've tested both through the Tapatalk console and on my tablet and it seems to work. I'm not sure anyone was using Forumrunner, but that has been disabled as it hadn't worked in year. I'm willing to work on restoring it if there's enough demand. Thanks again for your patience and support. Best and warmest regards to all.
  7. who was that masked man?

      Hi Bob, I recently signed up on the forum but for some reason I am not allowed to post any comments or start and any threads. Is there a problem with my account?

      Thanks, Jared Purdy


  8. After more than a year of planning, testing and procrastinating, the board has been upgraded to the latest version of the IP.Board software. Many changes have occurred, but the foundation of the HOC--it's members--remains in place. Hopefully, the new features will be a positive factor and not detract from the discussion and interactions. If you notice anything broken, or experience any difficulties, please don't hesitate to drop me a PM. -Admin
  9. The developer of the software this forum runs on released a major upgrade several months ago. Based on my experience with such things, I opted to wait out the first few bug fixes and see how it shook out. At this time, the code has more or less stabilized, with several bug fixes having been released. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, I will be putting up a new test system and investigating any upgrade issues. Once the test system has been fully wrung out, I will make an announcement regarding the upgrade process and how it will afffect the production system. Your patience is appreciated.
  10. As many of you reading this are no doubt already aware, the Heritage Owners Club (HOC) forum software received a major facelift in late April of this year. Actually, a major transplant is probably a better analogy, as we shifted off the free (no cost) Simple Machines Forum code to the commercial Invision Power Services (IPB) Community Suite as well as moving from our previous webhosting service to a tier one provider. If you vist the Forums, you can explore the new functionality that IP.Board provides, as well as enjoy the new, cleaner look. If you were a regular user of the old board, you will likely experience a bit of a learning curve. In the end, though, I think you will find the new board to be much more flexible and powerful. Hopefully, we will also find the new (hardware) system to be much more reliable. As part of the Community Suite, we also have the integrated IP.Gallery image component installed. If you have not taken the time to create your own album in the Members Gallery, please do! Our new Gallery Moderator, mars_hall, has also taken the time and expended significant effort to create a Rogues Gallery of various Heritage guitars owned by our members. The pictures came from the previous Photobucket site, but if you have specific model images you would like to have added, please contact mars_hall either through the board's personal message or email systems. Lastly, we have the IP.Blog component of the Community Suite. What you are now reading is a part of the blog system, which still requires some further tweaking. Members of the HOC forum are allowed to create their own blogs, and can choose to make them private (the member chooses who has access to view their entries) or public, which would be open to everyone. As we move forward, I will be going through the various blog configuration items and (hopefully) improving the functionality. With the move to this new environment, I think we have an opportunity to create an even more impressive community than we already have. The integration of the various IPB components should allow for easier inclusion of images in the forums, as well as bringing both forum posts and gallery images into any blogs that are created. In the end, though, the HOC is not a pile of hardware located in some data center. It is more than the transfer of electrons over wires, or the interplay between software packages. The HOC is what it is because of its members. The participation of people like you who have an affinity, if not love, for these works of art in wood and steel and abalone are what make the HOC a community. Please accept my sincere appreciation for being a part of the growing, evoloving Heritage Owners Club. We couldn't have done it without you. Admin
