  1. Here are a couple examples of Heritage archtops in Green and Green Burst. (These are custom ordered Heritage Johnny Smiths) Green Burst (I think this one belongs to Marty Grass):
  2. Awesome H575 Custom! Congratulations, Paul. May you enjoy it for many years.
  3. Wow, that is one beautiful H575 Custom! Chestnut Burst?
  4. Didn't Heritage offer a limited edition "150 Deluxe" with these features?
  5. The photo of the top front of the headstock may be a distortion, but it appears that the binding is separating. I'd ask for another photo from the seller.
  6. This is the fraudulent version of AFLAC.
  7. @Millennium MaestroWow, now THAT's a flaming flamer for flame Friday!!
  8. H-157 with a P90 Soapbar in the neck? https://jimmywallaceguitars.com/collections/h150-h155-h157/products/heritage-h157-custom
  9. I think a Pelham blue H157 would look sweet. The Heritage Bespoke program could pull it off...if enough cash thrown at em. The 157 below isn't Pelham blue, but ya'll get the idea.
  10. My favorites are the original Dunlap Crybaby Wah Wah from the late 60's, the updated Q model, and their combination Volume Pedal Wah Wah.
  11. Great article. However, no mention of how competitive their pricing will be compared to imports, especially for the most commonly used guitar amp tubes (12ax7, 6V6, 6L6, etc.)
  12. Welcome to the HOC and Congratulations on your 'new-to-you' H-150. It's stunningly beautiful. Check the rear control panel and see it there is any additional info. Your 150 looks like one of Heritage's special runs of 'Ultra' models. They came with HRW's, gold hardware and 'ultra' high grade flame maple tops. Also, check in with your seller, MM. He might have more details. Play it in good health.
  13. @zguitar71Like you, I really dig 5e3 circuit amps and would love to own an old Brownface. Prices have shot up on those vintage rigs however. As far as a reissue, the Fender Chris Stapleton '62 Princeton comes close...but pricey. https://www.fender.com/en-US/guitar-amplifiers/vintage-pro-tube/62-princeton-amp-chris-stapleton-edition/8151800000.html
  14. Excellent decision-tree analysis and execution. Now they'll be required to laugh at all of your 'dad jokes' going forward.
  15. Interesting video by a well informed player. I found this book a whole lot more interesting and informative however. The sections on how Leo Fender's amps evolved over the years were well worth the price of admission. (It's a pricey book...but includes a CD).
  16. @tsp17Awesome! Welcome back to gigging. Good times with the big, beautiful H550.
  17. It was similar. The LP Supreme has a carved top/back and similar mahogany sandwich inner core. The CS-356, like the CS-336 also had a carved top, with a hollowed out Mahogany back/sides, the same as the Millennium. However, Heritage offered a few variants of the H-155 and Millennium, the higher end versions (e.g. Millie Eagle) had a LP Supreme-ish carved flame maple back.
  18. @Steiner...This "old, yellowed natural maple" abomination is so hideous, I'd feel terrible passing it on to another HOC'er. It must forever remain in seclusion in the darkest depths of my on-site storage room. I promised Jay Wolfe I'd never let "Quilty" ever see the light of day...ever. She was, of course a catastrophic effort to salvage a blundered build by Heritage, placing the reverse carved backside of a planned Sweet 16 onto the front of a lowly H-575. So it must remain in perpetual seclusion so as to not offend HOC'ers.
  19. Will, you have first dibs if I ever lose my mind and put "Neptune" up for sale. 🙂
  20. The first thing to consider is the scale (length from bridge to nut) length on each of your guitars. And every feature has an impact on play-ability and tone. The Sweet 16 is a carved, full hollow body with 25.5 scale. H-575's are also carved, full hollow body, but with 24.75 scale. H-535's are laminate top/back solid rims, semi-hollow with 24.75 scale. This is probably one of the most versatile electric guitar body types available for all types of music. All that means the final decision is up to you...and your musical playing preferences. Good hunting.
  21. +1 on Fender Pro amps. My first real amp (excluding the Vibro Champ) was a 60's Fender Pro 1x15. That was the later 40 watt version Pro. For gigging I also connected it to a matching Fender 1x12 extension speaker. That was my 'chittlin circuit' and USO rig. Man, that thing could bark!!
