  1. I never took issue with the original Heritage design, nor did I find it “ugly”. Doesn’t bother me at all that the new owner(s) changed the design for the Core series. AFAIC The “New” Heritage isn’t the same as the old Heritage anyway. Nowadays, they’re just another guitar company to me. No longer do I have any sense of an “emotional” connection to brand.
  2. If it's only a lacquer crack, I wouldn't worry much about it.
  3. I remember when I didn’t obsess over these types of issues (like the tailpiece being up high). My attitude used to be like the old “Record Rating” thing on American Bandstand. “It’s got a good beat, and I can dance to it” was good enough for me. Well, not anymore as I find the weirdest most seemingly unnoticeable to the untrained eye bugs me. Snd hell, I can’t play worth a sheet either!!!
  4. I remember the earlier “H” guitars used the metric Schaller stuff, but went imperial with the switch to Tonepros. Just don’t know with the post TonePros hardware.
  5. On the current production models, are the bridge and tailpiece studs Imperial threads or Metric?
  6. To be honest, I hardly ever play clean (99%+ in the dirt). And while I’m not a high gain player, I do like to go with the amps available dirt sounds (not a pedal guy). I would describe the dirty sounds as kind of a “fuzz-tortion” sound. Not bad, but really not tremendously different than sounds I can get from my DSL in which I run a 12AU7/ECC82 in the V1. And while it wasn’t expensive, I really didn’t see where it would have seen much use after the honeymoon period was over.
  7. Here’s my thoughts on it. I received it on Sunday, just dropped it off at UPS for a return today. While I can say that I liked it better than a Blues Jr. I still didn’t find it interesting enough for my wants (notice I didn’t say “needs”). It was an impulse buy, and in the end just didn’t feel like it was in my best interest to keep it. If it had knocked my socks off, it may have been a different story. Looked cool as hell though.
  8. I picked one up earlier on Friday. At that time it was $329, and they were including a 15’ cable and slipcover with it. They dropped the price to $299 when they ran out of the slipcovers. I’d rather have had if for $299, as I usually just throw a towel over my amp in lieu of a slipcover.
  9. When SG shopping I always look for 'em that weigh over 7.25 lbs, and have the later '60s style extended neck joint. Also going with Kluson gears as opposed to Grovers helps too.
  10. I had one, couldn’t get rid of it fast enough. Didn’t like how the neck would dive, even when using a suede strap. But one things for sure, you don’t see a whole lot of them.
  11. Cool, obscure find Brent. But what I really wanna’ know is... “Are you Sarah Connor”?
  12. I used to own an ‘89 H-357 that weighed in at 8.9 lbs (IIRC). It exhibited absolutely zero neck dive.
