  1. I am so happy that I own a 550 and now I just need to brush the dust off it and play the darn thang!
  2. And only ONE member from Louisville KY!
  3. pics or you don't have two
  4. The slide sounds great through that amp. Too bad the drums (especially the snare drum) sound so shitty in the demo. And the crash cymbals are WAY too hot in the mix!!
  5. Frankly, I don't see it as apples to apples. Other than the 150 looks similar to the LP, (and the 150's headstock is prettier), Heritage is a small maker of high quality guitars and G is a mass producer of quality guitars. Correct me if I am wrong, but Heritage guitars employ a lot more hands on craftsmanship than their G counterparts, thus their prices should definitely NOT be lower than the price of a G brand LP. Is Heritage now carving their guitar bodies using CNC machinery? And lest we forget, Les Paul models did not catch on with the guitar buying public for years. Their sales were declining rapidly, even through the 58-60 burst years. Which is precisely the reason why they scrapped the LP body style and in 1961 built the SG Les Paul, hoping to turn things around.
  6. Much appreciated Paul, this is very encouraging to hear! Glad to hear Jim and Ren are still visible at the shop. Very sorry to hear about Ren's health issues, myself, I went to hell and back with serious health issues Feb/Mar also. Glad to hear he is recovering. No sign of Marv while you were there? Really looking forward to PSP now!
  7. I don't do many things right....
  8. There is lots of folklore floating around surrounding G and H, as they are almost joined by the hip right? It's fun reading and speculating about it too!! Only Ren knows the truth....
  9. Nice find! I have two 535's, a 2015 and a 2011. And I also have 2 555's, both made from the original workers. To me, best guitars in the world.
  10. I kinda thought this statement didn't make sense! Now its confirmed!!!
  11. Be careful about using that term down heah in the deep South. Might get you in trouble!
  12. Quality is like buying oats. If you want nice fresh oats you have to pay a fair price. If you can be satisfied with oats that have already been thru the horse, that comes a little cheaper. ... Quality is not what happens when what you do matches your intentions.
