  1. I picked that one up on Reverb a couple of years ago. Back then it was “Sans headstock break”. I traded it to Brent for an old Gibbons EB-O bass. It would appear that somewhere along the line it took a tumble. I remember it was a pretty nice playing guit.
  2. Koontz Guitar Repair in Ferndale. Mike is the best!!!
  3. Give a shout out to Brent, he's done a few of these with great results. That does look like a "good" break (if there is such a thing).
  4. Welcome to the forum. It's really hard to beat the Seth Lover pickups. If you want the sound of original PAF pickups, they're where it's at. They go very well with styles of music you've described. I've never really cared for the Schaller pickups myself. Over the years I've had quite a few different Heritage guitars, and I always wound up swapping pickups. To me, at best the Schallers are just okay.
  5. 🤐 Beyond that, at least it was a nice day for a road trip!
  6. Do you not like the pickups that are currently in there? I'd say, if you like the way the guitar sounds now, leave it alone! It's a gamble to go through all that time & effort & cash, and hope it works out. There is absolutely nothing wrong with '59s, unless you don't like the way they sound. One should use caution when chasing the pickup unicorn.
  7. The market is (and has been) slow for a while now. I really haven't seen a whole ton of "Covid" prices yet. The prices for use Heritage guitars over on "The Verb", still seem to be on the high side. But there are more than a few H137's that seem like pretty good deals.
  8. Yup Heritage is now officially shut down (effective 12 A.M. Tuesday). I’m out of a job too. This really sucks.
  9. I'm on board with this. I have small-fish hands and just can't stand slim necks.
  10. Yep, I’ll admit that the Schaller stuff is pug-fugly.
  11. I've swapped stock zamak tailpieces with Aluminum in the past. For me I never found there to be a "huge" difference. However, my playing situation over the last 20 years has changed to where I seldom get to play very loud. Given that, I wouldn't be surprised to find that at rehearsal or stage volumes you could notice the change. I see you're located in TC, the Mrs. & I usually take vacation there every summer.
  12. Nice. I may miss the old days, but they are still making some spectacular instruments.
  13. Yeah, the new black label does seem strange. I also don’t like how the new label says “Made at the historic Parsons Steel factory” or something of the like. When in all actuality it’s not really made in the original plant.
  14. Wow, I was just thinking the same thing... uh-oh! 🙃
