    Boy Howdy, that's a stunner, Brent!  Congrats!  And yeah:

    "Heritage had definitely stepped up to the plate with their quality.   This 150 is stellar!!!  As good as any Gibbons CS I have ever played!!"

    I absolutely agree with you.  I'll have more to say about that as I post about the Custom Core.

    You’re custom Core is stunning!!!

  2. GC in Kalamazoo has a really nice selection of Heritage guitars right now, including a Core 150.   But there was a 2020 Dirty lemon burst Standard that was calling to me!   GC had a great offer on Heritage stuff right now so I took it home!  
     

    I had to do a complete setup on it.  The action was sky high and there was way too much relief in the neck.   But it setup PERFECTLY!  Low action and the neck straightened out very well.  Being PLEKED makes a huge difference!!!!   HUGE!!!!   
     

    Heritage had definitely stepped up to the plate with their quality.   This 150 is stellar!!!  As good as any Gibbons CS I have ever played!!   I do think they need to get away from SD 59s though, I’m not really impressed with them.

  3. ProtonBlues here lurking.

     

    No, my name is not really Proton ... This is a great website and thanks to all for making it so. By just hangin' out, y'all have taught me quite a lot in a short time. Can't post a pic because I'm looking to purchase my first Heritage instrument. Currently nurturing GAS for an H-140. Most of my guitars are 25.5 inch scale Strats and Teles, with a mix of Fender and G&L. The exceptions are a LP Studio semi hollow double cutaway, and a Hamer Vanguard. Would love an H-150 if my back were 30 years younger.

     

    Pickin' for 41 years and counting ...

    WELCOME TO THE HOC!

  4. Hi everybody,

    I guess I'm BigFudge. I've been lurking for a while, ever since I started my quest for my own semi-hollow early this year. I decided to finally post now because the custom 535 I ordered through Wolfe Guitars this summer is finally complete and on its way to me! I'm so excited, I just couldn't keep it to myself. The information in this forum helped out a lot when I was researching, so I figured I'd try to contribute a little something. At the very least, post some pictures for you guys to check out. Jay sent me some photos of her yesterday and I haven't stopped drooling. I can't wait to give her a spin!

    SUNSET BURST IS AWESOME...CONGRATS!!!

  5. Hello,

     

    My name is Tim (TJIann) and I'm from Annapolis, MD. This weekend I picked up my first Heritage guitar in a local deal...a 1993 H535. I was looking to get an ES335 when I came across this beautiful almond burst Heritage for over a thousand bucks less than a comparable 335. I knew the story and positive feedback about Heritage guitars. Once I opened the case and picked this one up it was love at first strum man. Pictures below. The guy I bought it from told me it was a late 80s model with Duncan pickups. He was not really too knowledgeable, but year and PUPs didn't matter much to me when I saw this guitar. I dated it as a 1993 as it has the "J" serial number. I took her home and did a setup/string change, and pulled the PUPs to find that they are the original Schallers. I have been playing it through the setup you see in the pics below, but more through my 1964 Fender Princeton Reverb--a killer combination.

     

    One thing I find curious about this guitar is that the body thickness is so thin. I've read in many of your posts that H535s have a thickness at the rim of 1 5/8". This one is only 1 1/2" thick at the rim. Is that just normal variation from the Heritage shop, or were the earlier versions thinner? Anyway, I can't say enough great things about this guitar (including the sound of the Schaller PUPs--not sure I need to replace those).

     

    Just joined the forum and looking forward to my next Heritage purchase....likely an H150 :)

    NICE 535!

     

    THAT WAS ONE OF THE TINKS THAT HERITAGE DID WHEN THEY STARTED, THEY CHANGED THE DESIGN OF THE 335 WHEN MAKING THE 535S. REN TOLD ME ABOUT IT ONE TIME.....THE THINNER RIM HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE RICHNESS OF THE TONE.....SO THAT WAS ON PURPOSE, NOT BY ACCIDENT :icon_smile:

  6. Hi....I am Ezra1 and that is the name they gave me in the Witness Protection Program.

    I have alot of guitars and basses. I have owned several Les Pauls thru the years.

    I bought a used 2000 H-150 CM.Sort of a cherry burst.

    It had a set of Pearly Gates in it and just didn't do alot for me. So I put 550k pots,oil caps and a set of WCR Darkburst pups in it.....the guitar came alive and sounded better than my LP's.

    ....used it in the studio quiet a bit..then it was stolen along with 5 other guitars..I was reimbursed for the loss but every time I listened to those tracks ...I would get pissed and miss that guitar.

    Then almost a year later a guy bought it out of a pawn shop.I worked a deal and got her back.

    I have considered getting a R9......but seriously think I will get Heritage to build one for me.

    make sure you tell Heritage you are a member of the HOC!!!

     

    Welcome!!!

  7. Hi,

     

    My name is Chuck and I live in Queen Creek, Arizona. The only Heritage I own is a Cherry Stat that I picked up about fifteen years ago at a pawn shop in Phoenix. I pulled it out of a pile of Indonesian Strats and took it home for $125. Serial Number B05001 puts it out of the factory pretty early in the history of The Heritage company. It's been well played and well loved as evidenced by the finish wear on the back of the neck - all the way to the wood between frets 2-9.

     

    I've only recently (the past 3-4 years) gotten into electric guitars/amps/pedals, etc. and along with my Tele's I really dig this guitar! I do get quite a bit of "static" when I do any string bending. It's like the Kahler isn't grounded properly and it really gets scratchy if I ever use the tremolo. Any suggestions?

     

    Also, I've looked the web and noticed that the newer versions of the "flying bridge" can be locked. Is there a practical way to do that with the older bridge?

     

    Chuck

     

    BTW, I would love to trade up from my Epiphone Dot for a Heritage 535 one day!!

    WELCOME!!!

     

    you got pics?

  8. This is my 1999 H-575 I bought used.

     

    h575.jpg

    Looks like it came stock with humbuckers, then a previous owner changed for P-90's. I also believe it came stock with the Bigsby I took off and replaced with a German-made AllParts.

     

    I use it for everything. Currently on hiatus from a so-called "jazz" quintet (mostly pop standards and old showtunes, but we come back from breaks with real straight ahead jazz tunes mostly before the vocalist comes back).

    Welcome to the HOC!

  9. Hi All, Just bought my first Heritage (2004 H-535) and cant put it down...I will be visiting the factory next week and cant wait. They told me to bring my guitar and they would check it over for me. Just thought I would say hello.

     

    Having trouble getting a pic on my profile...

    VERY NICE!!! Welcome to the HOC!

  10. Ach aye the noo from Scotland. I have a circa 1990 H357, needs a bit of work but still sounds and plays very well. It's my only Heritage.............for now. They are quite hard to come by in the UK so next time I'm in the states I'll pick up another.

    Hello to all, I look forwards to sharing in some banter and slavering over guitars with you.

     

    Now.........where did I put that kidney.

     

    Steve.
