  1. The definitely haven’t had an issue with the stamper since around 2011! 😆
  2. Nothing to worry about on that one. That serial number is legit.
  3. I had an ‘01 H-170 (that I really miss). It weighed in at 8.5 lbs.So it was not much, if any lighter than an H-140 or H-150. My current ‘93 H-137 weighs in at 7.9lbs.
  4. Yup! Original PAFs’ were horribly inconsistent sounding. I just prefer lower output humbuckers which usually have names that go along with something PAF-ish. It sometimes amazes me how powerful the placebo effect can be when dealing with vintage gear. Some will say even the worst sounding gear sounds like an angel just because it’s old.
  5. Not here in Michigan. They started making us pay sales tax for online purchases last year. So we pay the 6% sales tax, and we pay taxes on our wages, AND still have to pay a use tax for internet purchases. Gotta' love this state, still ranked 50th in road conditions. Woo-hoo!!!!
  6. No, it would have the designation written on the sticker on the control cavity cover. I suppose it’s possible, just unlikely.
  7. When you put a new set on, make sure to find the sharp part of the end wind and turn it so it’s facing the bottom of the saddle. That way the pointy part will be facing down towards the body. Kind of the same principle applies when using a wrapover tailpiece.
  8. I'm not as optimistic regarding the future for Heritage. I just don't believe trying to go toe to toe with the big dog will bode well for "H". The bang for the buck factor was what kept them alive for all those years. Not just the whole 225 Parsons St. angle. But, good luck to them, as the market will be the ultimate decider.
  9. IMO- When it comes to the guitar buying public, if you price an LP and H-150 right about the same, most will opt to buy the “genuine item” and not the “copy”. One of the biggest things that made Heritage special, was the fact that you could get a guitar equivalent or better than Gibson, for a fraction of the cost.
  10. Sorry “H” I’m not the least bit excited about any of those offerings. And I’ll bet the prices are off the chart. I’m sure they’ll sell well to buyers from Dubai and areas of the like.
  11. My only gripes with the Schaller stuff were/are mostly cosmetic. That damn tailpiece is “pug-fugly”! Also the fragile plastic pickup rings with the extra holes in them weren’t very inspiring to me.
  12. Just another reason why I don't have a Facebook account (or Twitter or Instagram or etc.)!!!!
  13. Just another reason why I could care less about this new version of The Heritage. No thanks Meng.
  14. “Wiggle it, just a little bit!”
