  1. Check out this new Heritage Model. WOW

    If they ever give me a signature model (the lafond model). This would be it. Here is the rest. Millie Ultra STD, no F holes, HRWs, pickup selector on top.
  2. Never to be seen again....

  3. H170 with AF Date Code

    That would be a 170 2nd generation 2015. They were still making them then . Slight improvements better access to higher frets. Love mine. I got the 1st one of these second edition 170s. Great guitar
  4. Getting ready for PSP

    I wish I had the problems you have Kuz. Hopefully, when I learn the Kemper, I will have a profile of a Deluxe and a profile of a Vibrolux) one can dream the technology has come this far. Still trying to figure out the kemper as I just got it.
  5. Hope to Gig with it (Deserving of its own stand). Trying to come up with the ultimate lightweight rig. I have a 2 x 10 cabinet and a quilter PROBLOCK. I may bring it up if I can get it dialed in by Friday
  6. Getting ready for PSP

    Looking forward to the jam at Heritage this year. Kuz's Deluxe is a pretty killer amp.
  7. My Wife Thinks It's Crazy, What Do You Think?

    That super eagle exposed me to the 'greatness' of the Heritage Archtop line. It was a good fair trade for both of us. Although I eventually traded it, I didn't loose any dollars and got to experience something special. No problem parting with a few things to upgrade. With the used market, it doesn't cost too much to experiment and find the right keeper for you. The Journey is the Reward.
  8. So I have shared with my hoc breatheran my quest for an all in one solution. I sold my Marshall jcm800 stack to aquire the kemper I should be getting it in a couple of weeks. I must admit that I have been totally satisfied with my fender mustang III v 2 for ease of use ( rarely use the software) but am looking forward to taking the kemper plunge. I came across this cool video comparing the kemper to the axe fx to the line 6 helix. I much prefer the kemper sounds but wanted to check in with the hoc contingent to see if you agree. Here is the link. What say you?
  9. Well, it came!

    Great guitar great finish a wise choice. I have a 25th anniversary 535 in that same color. It grows on you
  10. I also have a 4 x 12 loaded with celestions so when my son can roadie for me, I will probably use it for the outdoor gigs. Stay tuned for the new amp day when the Kemper arrives in a week or so.
  11. Finally sold the JCM800. I decided to go the Kemper route after having great experiences with my Mustang III and V (still have those and they are under Fender's generous 5 year warranty). In fact, I just may PROFILE my mustang III and Mustang V into the Kemper (If you PROFILE a MODELING amp, are you playing with FIRE and the laws of nature). Still have a Princeton reverb, deluxe reverb, and 80's era concert to profile. My favorite amp sounds. I am going to use those familiar (to me) amp sounds/behaviours to learn Kemper profiling techinques and in the future will repost in this thread. Hard to jump into the deep end without a good tube amp (plus if you are going to get electricuted, it may as well be a tube amp). Hoping the Kemper raises the bar vs. the Mustang (which has served me well). My new Rig Kemper Profiler Lunchbox (non-powered version) prefer this version over the rack version as it is more tweakable without a computer 2 x 12 custom cabinet (looks like a blues breaker Marshall vs. the BackBreaker Marshall stack) 200 watts 200 watt Quilter Power Block Pro (w/REVERB) 2 12 inch celection NEO Vintage Century speakers (200 watts) total weight (the actual empty wood cabinet is most of the weight) about 40 pounds which is about the weight of my JCM 800 amp head (minus the 2 4 12 speaker cabinets). So how close will this sound to an 8-12 inch JCM800 marshall stack? I will keep you in suspense until the HOC (not sure if anyone wants to try this rig out, but I can easily bring it up with me) (as long as I figure it out first).
  12. New Fender Mustang GT Amplifier Introduced

    Cool Brian . I see one of theses in the near future. Hoping the come out with a head form factor soon
  13. NGD H150 LW (25th anniversary). about time

    Upon closer examination it appears to be a 1 piece top. Would have got it anyway but it is a nice bonus. Might be able to scot R a nice 25th anniversary 535 to go with it NOS
  14. Newer Heritages better than 90s models?

    A couple of unique beauties there.
