  1. @RicLeeCongratulations on your beautiful new-to-you Sweet 16. It looks a lot like my former '96 Sweetie, but mine had a set-in pickup. Like you, I had a Kent Armstrong 12-pole installed. It was perfect for that guitar. Enjoy and play it in good health for many years.
  2. Did Brent buy it? If so, I call dibbs! 🙂
  3. Sweet rig. It was nice of the former owner to put your initials on the faceplate for you. 🙂 Looking forward to your full review and obligatory gut shots.
  4. @51DecisionsWelcome to the HOC. You are correct that your H-150 is a 1996 model. https://heritageguitars.com/pages/date-your-heritage Also, the label indicates yours is "CM, ACB" Curly Maple top with Antique Cherry Burst color. Enjoy your 'new-to-you' H-150. Its beautiful.
  5. @rockabilly69Sounding great as usual, Daniel. You do such a great job layering your tracks and your timing is amazing. Question...Isn't that an H-535 P90 and not an H-525? 🙃
  6. Awesome photo! It looks like the blue wood grain has movement.
  7. Those catalogue prices appear to be very high for that time period. I'm guessing they are MAP? Also, some of the prices coincidentally are fairly close to what the similar models are selling for on the current used market. Hmmm.
  8. @tsp17Looks like you're having way too much fun with that big, beautiful H550. Thanks for posting.
  9. @brentrocksThat really came out great. How are your pickup controls laid out? I had to have Ren talk to my guitar tech to get my 3-p'up 157 worked out the way I wanted. That resulted in a push-pull pot so I could get the traditional 'neck + bridge' tone, in addition to the 'neck only', 'bridge only and 'neck-middle-bridge' connection.
  10. @PhilapeteCongratulations on scoring a beautiful H-575 Custom!
  11. @ScatterbrainBeautiful H-150 CC! Play it in good health.
  12. SSB = SunSetBurst.
  13. Your description sounds like one of a limited series of specially outfitted or dealer specified H-575 Customs. You might ask the seller if the interior label states "Custom". The "Custom" designation typically included one or more extra cost options such as upgraded colors, pearl block or slant fretboard inlays, bound neck, bound headstock, inlayed headstock and choice/upgraded wood packages. Since each selected option had a specific cost associated with it, the final selling price increased accordingly. Back in the early years a few of the larger, high volume Heritage dealers ordered tricked out 575's and other models. Today, the market for custom upgraded Heritage guitars tend to be on the higher side of the resale market. Check Reverb 'sold' for this model and you'll get a pretty good idea of the possible price range for the H575 you're considering. Finally, thanks to Google, here's an example of an upgraded H575 Custom that might be similar to the one you are considering. As stated, this was a version that was included in the old Heritage Catalogue back in the day. Good luck!
