  1. I had a Brand new one blocks/Rosewood disappear/stolen at the factory during the cleanup when Plaza took over... Those Serials don't match but I keep my eyes open for her! The factory did make it right with me... I loved those good ol' boys of the Golden Era!
  2. I am a little off my game with COVID. I should have stated more accurately. "Many Players who can't" I also have a certain taste in pickups(Rough cast A2, slightly overwound) with tube amps and closed back low watt speakers We all know you can make anything sound great.
  3. There are many out there with a plethora of reasons why their guitar will never sound good no matter what pup is loaded in. They are just F'n pups!
  4. Being a boutique builder the Golden Era Heritages are often miss ID'd. Even most dealers sucked at knowing models and options which further exasperated the problem!
  5. a bound maple headstock veneer is a stand option with previous generations, Deluxe's also had multi ply front body binding, Cream/Black... Choice woods, Duncan 59s...
  6. There are dealers that would custom order with prior ownership. Keep your eyes open, I may know where a new one is! PM me if you want me to see about the new one!
  7. Those are great upgrades... Perfect to get all out of the guitars IMHO. So when I was a dealer I had plans to do a Thinline 157 of the month for a year. The theory behind was a dense(Heavy) body shaved from 2" to 1 1/2" would deliver ALL the tone of the Heavy guitars in a manageable 8# weight... I had some built prior to Plaza stepping in and wanting to stop custom dealer orders. I miss the boutique days! But I get the production based current system, with standardized models sharing basic common features that has allowed Heritage to survive to date! However my story all started with my experiences with my Well loved 147 workhorse! right click the links My nicely upgraded 147 [img]https://i.imgur.com/JF4F1i4.jpg[/img] Choice wooded slim 157 [img]https://i.imgur.com/eoPnCsT.jpg[/img] Mini hum loaded slim 157 [img]https://i.imgur.com/xWzfuTs.jpg[/img]
  8. Silly! They had plastic on pre Plaza too... but many times they delivered standard Flamed maple Pick Guards especially on the dressed up builds, Plaza started experimenting before standardizing the models to plastic. My OLD 2000ish catalog shows plastic on 140s, 150s, 516s, and Prospects.
  9. Some of the frets look dang fretless flat! Is she really bright? Have fun! Hope to see her in summer!
  10. PLAZA INTRODUCED PLASTIC AS STANDARD MATERIAL PICKGUARDS
