  1. Feedback with an H575 should not be much of an issue unless you are playing facing the amp speaker...and at high Twin Reverb volume. I did an unsophisticated feedback experiment using an ES175 and H575. The laminate-bodied 175 was a bit more feedback resistant than the carved 575, but not by much. That said, H575's are very versatile archtops, capable of many music styles. Here's Alex Skolnick putting his signature H575 through its paces to give you an idea of what this amazing guitar can sound like. Peace. https://www.google.com/search?q=alex+skolnick+jazz&client=firefox-b-1-d&ei=xQmQY5PsHLvh0PEPj7m3uAk&oq=alex+skolnick+video&gs_lcp=Cgxnd3Mtd2l6LXNlcnAQARgBMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADMgoIABBHENYEELADSgQIQRgASgQIRhgAUABYAGDfEWgBcAF4AIABAIgBAJIBAJgBAMgBCMABAQ&sclient=gws-wiz-serp#fpstate=ive&vld=cid:b7858254,vid:w-gqmetYqxk
  2. Just to add a slightly dissenting opinion, HRW's sound great with archtops. I have one in my H575 and love it. YMMV.
  3. What a tempting place for us amp addicts! Here's a better view of their inventory... https://guitarhifi.com/product-category/guitar-bass-amplifiers/guitar-bass-amplifiers-used-vintage/page/2/
  4. Welcome to the HOC and congratulations on your awesome 'R9 Killer'. 🙂
  5. Both 575's are beautiful. And there must be a back story to both, right? 🙂
  6. 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):
  7. Awesome H575 Custom! Congratulations, Paul. May you enjoy it for many years.
  8. Wow, that is one beautiful H575 Custom! Chestnut Burst?
  9. Didn't Heritage offer a limited edition "150 Deluxe" with these features?
  10. 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.
  11. This is the fraudulent version of AFLAC.
  12. @Millennium MaestroWow, now THAT's a flaming flamer for flame Friday!!
  13. H-157 with a P90 Soapbar in the neck? https://jimmywallaceguitars.com/collections/h150-h155-h157/products/heritage-h157-custom
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.)
  17. 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.
  18. @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
  19. Excellent decision-tree analysis and execution. Now they'll be required to laugh at all of your 'dad jokes' going forward.
  20. 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).
