  1. As I’m getting ever closer to 70 years on this planet I don’t actively gig these days, however I still dep/stand in for friends if the need arises and last week I had the opportunity to take on guitar duties with a country band, as I struggle now with the longer Fender scale, there was an obvious choice as to which guitar would fit the bill. I had previously spent some time adjusting the Lollar polepieces and bridge setup, all I can say is “Telecaster owners eat your heart out”. Paired with my handwired Wienbrock Me3 combo (5e3 style) it was a marriage made in heaven. H137 ownership might tempt me out of retirement !!!! Oh and I’m off to a blues jam tomorrow, happy days.
  2. Excellent, really enjoyed listening to you, Mike B.
  3. I’ve wanted to own a Heritage ever since I saw Gary Moore playing his signature H150, many years ago. However, they rarely come up for sale over here, especially in the south west where I am, finally a 137 second generation, in TV yellow, from 2006 was offered to me and I jumped at the chance to own it. At nearly 70 years old, a full fat Les Paul is way too heavy for me and Fender scale guitars are too hard on my arthritic fingers, so the H137 is like a dream come true. Just restrung it with DR Veritas 9-46 which I’ve been using for some time and it plays and sounds fantastic. It’s had a replacement tailpiece fitted, a tonpros, which I’m in two minds about, firstly it had some sideways play that I’ve corrected with a small shim and now the strings line up better with the pole pieces. Also , I can imagine that if a string breaks at a gig, it would be a nightmare to thread a new string through quickly, so I might investigate sourcing a “lightning bolt “ as per original, thanks for letting me on the forum, Mike. ps will have to try to resize and add a pic.
