  1. Omg. That color is perfect!! I always keep an inventory of parts too. 500k pots, switches, toggles, TRCs, tuners, knobs, bridges/tailpieces, etc…
  2. Oh wow. I had forgotten about that one. That’s an awesome one off 170!!!
  3. My vote is for the H170 with the sharp horns like the ones in the mid 80s
  4. Well, this sucks!! The seller is backing out on the deal because he’s pissed that he has to show proof of shipping before he gets his Money. Lol. What a jerk.
  5. I might leave it stock, just for historical purposes. A lot depends on how it sets up and plays. I’m not a fan of the Schaller bridge and tailpiece. The black and gold thing is pretty classic. I probably should leave it alone.
  6. LMAO!!! Not that good of a deal Dave! But I got it for well under the $2000 asking price.
  7. Schaller pickups actually have 3 holes per side, so you can do a single screw per side. The 3 hole per side rings are not present though.
  8. I pulled the trigger on a 1988 H147 yesterday. From the sellers pictures, it appears to be in excellent shape!! He claims it has seen very little play time and has no fret wear. I noticed right away that the pickup rings are not factory original, so it has possibly seen a pickup swap or the rings were changed (since the original ones usually ended up cracking). I’m thinking it still has the original Schaller pups. The pup screws look original. No heritage case. Not a big deal. Original Schaller hardware. But the one thing I find intriguing is the tuners. Schaller tuners with the Grover footprint! Kinda rare for that era! There doesn’t appear to be much in the line of checking on the guitar, which is very odd for a heritage this age. It must have spent most of it’s time in a case. The frets look pretty high and basically unplayed. The edges of the inlay work on the headstock still look nice and sharp. This guitar was very well taken care of or just sat under the bed. I plan to convert it over to nickel hardware. If the pickups are the original Schallers, they will be coming out. I’m assuming the neck carve will be a 60s style, probably around .840 at the first fret. If it ends up being bigger, that would be a bonus! I should have it Thursday or Friday so stay tuned!!!!
  9. Congratulations. The H150 DLX was an ongoing number edition, which I think is now discontinued.
  10. It’s more the color. The top is amazing. I think it would look better with a bourbon burst or a dark lemon burst.
  11. The trans black wasn’t doing anything for me at first, but the more I play it and see it, I’m coming around.
  12. I like them. I’ve been playing a lot of hotter wound pickups lately (Duncan JB) so I’m re adjusting. Lol
  13. Don't you love it when you find sweet guitars locally?!?! Thanks again to Mark for another great transaction!!! A fellow Heritage lover and local friend was selling this beautiful 2017 Heritage H157.. So i called him up and we made the deal yesterday. This H157 has a neat history. Shortly after PlazaCorp took over the operations down at 225 Parsons St., Heritage did a limited edition for NAMM. It was called the H157W. The W stood for Western Maple. These were limited to 50 pieces, and all had INCREDIBLE western maple tops. And all came from the factory with THROBAK pickups and bumblebee caps. This guitar was built with one of the leftover tops from that 157W run. And has the same THROBAK pickups and caps. It also has locking TONEPROS hardware and Grover tuners with ebony buttons...all factory. This H157 has a medium C neck carve...about .870-.950. It's incredibly light, for a Les Paul Custom style guitar.... only 8.6 lbs!!!! It has incredible note definition. Warm, woody tone. Great fretwork...it sets up really nice!
  14. FROM THE ARCHIVES… The Patriot has 45 watts of power from two 6L6 tubes or two EL34's in a two 12" speaker combo amp. The amp goes from blackface clean tones to a tweed-style break-up. The Patriot is perfect for styles ranging from blues, country, jazz and classic rock. Control Panel: Volume / Pull Bright: Controls the overall volume/gain of the amplifier. Pulling the volume control makes the amp sound "brighter". The "bright" function, in conjunction with the treble control, allows the player to tune the treble frequencies to better match the type of guitar and pickup position used. Treble: Adjusts the amount of high frequencies Middle: Adjusts the amount of mid frequencies Bass: Adjusts the amount of low-end frequencies Dwell: Controls the amount of signal level sent to the reverb pan. At lower settings, there is less reverb depth or decay, while at higher settings the reverb depth and decay increase. Reverb: Adjusts the amount of the reverb signal Presence: Increases the gain of high frequencies in the power amp section Mood: Adusts the amount of negative feedback in the power amp section. Lower mood settings will be tighter and more focused sounding, while higher settings will be more agressive sounding with a looser bottom end. Back Panel: Fuse: 3 Amp fuse housed within the detachable AC power connector Bias pot and test points: See biasing instructions Speaker jacks: 2, 4 and 8 ohm. If you would like to use an 8 ohm extension speaker cab, please disconnect the internal speaker. If you have a 4 ohm extension speaker cab, you can use the cab and the internal speakers by plugging the extension cab and the internal speakers into the 2 ohm speaker jacks. Combo Dimensions and Specs: 2x12 open back, pine cabinet. Width: 26.5" x Height: 20"x Depth: 11.25". The combo cab is loaded with 2 Celestion G12H30 speakers, wired in parallel for 4 ohm. The Patriot comes standard in burgundy with a cane grille. Please see our vinyl and grille cloth section for custom colors. Weight: 63 lbs.
