    I would look at Sweetwater, or other online dealers. If they have the guitars in stock, you can pick the exact guitar you want from the options. And they have a great return policy. For the same price, I would look and find the top you want. Better to have a choice. If you aren't happy, return it. Just my opinion. 

    Sweetwater’s my go to place for new gear.  The customer service is second to none.

  2. But there is something special and or different about the custom core H150s.

    I just sold a beautiful 2020 Standard that played awesome, it sounded awesome, but the custom core just played a little better and sounded just a little better.

    why? What was the secret ingredient in the custom cores to make them that much better?

     

    Feel free to discuss… LOL…

    The Orange Drop caps could also be improved to Mojo PIO or something similar. Even Epiphone uses orange drops. Again, when I'm paying for a premium guitar, I expect premium parts. And I agree that the pickguard should be real wood. 

    I didn’t realize that orange drop caps we’re not a somewhat premium part? I thought they were average or above average but I guess I was wrong. LOL

    Brent, were the nuts/threads on the string posts stripped? Or are you talking about the wood screws holding the tuners into the back of the headstock?

     

    Strange as I have found Grovers to be good quality in the past. Although who knows where they are getting made these days

    Its the string post screws....actually I think the biggest problem is that the tuners are not the right depth for the headstock.   There's not enough thread to grab and tighten.  My locking grovers worked perfectly.

  5. Made a few small mods to it last night.  The Heritage tuners were crap and did not tighten down to the headstock very well. (2 of the 6 were stripped out) I’m a fan of locking tuners anyway.  


    The 225 pickups were good, but I had a set of double cream THROBAK ER customs that I thought would be a good match for this guitar…I was right, they sound FABULOUS!!!


    Also, I went with a traditional pick guard, poker chip and truss rod cover.   


    …and a HRW switch tip as a little tip of the hat to the “good ol days” of Heritage.
