  1. I think the name "Hypothetical Heritage Museum" is perfect.
  2. Thinline is an old Gibson term typically referring to a hollow or semi-hollow body guitar that is 'thinner' than the typical (roughly) 3" body width. Gibson was one of the first to use the term, but Fender later used it to describe one of their Tele models. But ya'll get the point. The term thinline had little or nothing to do with the width of Heritage H-140's. Now if you want to start discussing my favorite Heritage 'thinline' H525's, I might jump in.
  3. Man, that well worn Stat needs to be framed (as is!) and hung in that bar as a tribute to your saving their A$$es.
  4. Haha! Great image mock up. All this time I never noticed that the name is actually "Eagle Centurion".
  5. Should have played through a Marshall stack...
  6. Hey, don't mock Mr. Welk! He had two badass gitfiddle players in his band back in '66. Um, my Dad told me about em. Yea, my Dad. Um...OK, truth is... I watched it with him every Saturday night. Check this out.
  7. Happy 20th birthday to your amazing Heritage Centurion, Fred. (Shouldn't this be in the birthday thread?) Have you ever considered putting a pickguard on her?
  8. Not sure if you checked the 'Sold' listings from Reverb... https://reverb.com/marketplace?query=Heritage sweet 16 prices&show_only_sold=true I also owned a '96 Sweet 16 and it was an incredible archtop. Good luck with your sale.
  9. Glad it was a simple TR adjustment. Not sure if you got the GC Pro Coverage with the purchase of your new H535, but here's the scoop: Guitar Center's Pro Coverage Pro Coverage gives you added warranty protection for your gear. Stepping in where the manufacturer's "normal wear and tear" coverage ends, our Pro Coverage program offers you upgraded coverage if your product ever fails Read Less. Pro Coverage includes Accidental damage protection Expedited repair or replacement Free shipping (for returns or repairs) 100% coverage for commercial use Extended price protection No lemon guarantee Free transfer of coverage to a new owner Repair costs covered for up to five years from date of purchase Repair authorization-toll-free by phone or via the web
  10. First off, I am not a fan of Guitar Center's 'techs'. However, since the OP bought the 535 new from GC, they need to hear about any issues first. Give them the first opportunity to provide service after sale. They've got the most to prove to their customer. Also, if the guitar has any serious issues and requires warranty service by Heritage, its best to keep it out of the hands of anyone until GC has taken a look at it.
  11. HOC'er Kuz has a custom P90 loaded H535. Maybe he'll chime in with his comments.
  12. Ah, the benefits of living in Kalamazoo! Cool find, Brent. Can't wait to see your forthcoming restoration thread.
  13. By the seller using the term "minty" in his description, he basically misrepresented the guitar's condition.
  14. Oh man, I would be in SO much trouble if I ever visited his shop! That 5E3 clone had my heart fluttering.
  15. Awesome Heritage family photo, Will. You've got all the bases covered...except for a Tele.
  16. Hey brother Rob, does your amp dude have one of these?
  17. Also check Sweetwater if you want tubes and candy with your order. https://www.sweetwater.com/c1070--Guitar_Amp_Tubes
  18. She's been seen here before, but since this is a 535 thread......
  19. And no edits to #2000 post! Congratulations, sir.
  20. Congrats on the new Harmony amp, DB. Does it have a speaker out in back?
  21. Ha...rjsanders is the king of boutique amp knowledge and go-fast boats. That "wooden cabbed amp" you referred to is a lowly first edition '98 Fender Blues Jr., with BillM mods and a Tone Tubby speaker. Sounds great and doesn't weigh much more than a standard B.Jr. If I consider selling it, I'll post it on the HOC first. For now she's happy in Gitfiddler land.
  22. It may be gimmicky, but looks like a great feature for playing at home, rehearsal or other venue where the full 85 watts isn't needed. (My Mesa Mk IV is 85 watts...and weighs around 100 lbs!). I haven't tried one of these amps, so my perspective is derived by Fender marketing (see below) and the very positive user reviews on the net. https://shop.fender.com/en-US/guitar-amplifiers/contemporary-digital/tone-master-twin-reverb/2274200000.html 5-WAY POWER ATTENUATOR SWITCH Enjoy full, natural tone at almost any volume—from a full 85W of Fender power down to bedroom- and apartment-friendly 1W.
