  1. Congratulations on that fine looking H-530! Play it in good health...and Welcome to the HOC.
  2. And speaking of Custom Core H-150's, have ya'll seen this freshly sprayed monster flame top over on the Heritage Instagram page?
  3. Very interesting details. The lighter weight of Custom Core 150's is a big factor as well. If I were in the market for a 150 it would definitely be a CC.
  4. I LOVE that 157, especially with the amber bindings. Never seen that on a Heritage. Congratulations on a great score!
  5. Umm...can I enter my #2 favorite amp? I picked this one up last year and have really been enjoying it a LOT. It doesn't have a ton of features or effects. It's simply an old school, 12 watt, 5e3 design, updated by Fender's Custom Shop that sounds amazing. They sold them as either a combo or head. Since I already had the matching speaker cab, I went for a slightly used head version of their Custom 57 Deluxe. #2...
  6. For me the Heritage Liberty amp sets the standard that all of my other amps are compared to. This modern day 'high powered (45 watt) tweed-based circuit' brings the goods no matter what guitar it is paired with. It absolutely sings with my H555.
  7. That's an informative video. However, I find that each pickup is different. It doesn't matter who the manufacturer is. In a guitar there are so many variables (wood species, dryness, density, scale, etc., etc.). Each needs to be adjusted to one's own ear in order to find the desired 'sweet spot'.
  8. Here's Wolfgang brilliantly performing Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" on his Millie Eagle.
  9. Welcome to the HOC, Joe. And congratulations on your incoming Super Eagle. You'll definitely get your KB "Midnight Blue" groove on with that sweet axe.
  10. @JayBecker: Welcome to the HOC! Prospects are unique and wonderful guitars. It's another model that Heritage should bring back into production. Yours looks to be in good hands. Play it in good health.
  11. Hi and welcome to the HOC! You may be one of the first Mimi Fox owners who posted here. (Any others feel free to chime in) And what an entrance! That is one beautiful instrument. I've always wanted to check one of those models out. Based on Mimi's videos, she seems to be an excellent teacher as well as master jazz guitarist. Great that you've found an online instructor that you like. Play it in good health.
  12. Aha! Thanks, PK. Well that settles it. Jim is still making sawdust at Heritage. They should bring back a Heritage Bass to their lineup.
  13. Tad, I am so happy for you!  (And only a little jealous).  I've been looking at SKB's for years, but above my budget.

    You are going to love that big girl.

  14. Welcome to the HOC! If you are looking for a pickup for your H575, be sure to check out Archtop.com. I had a custom wound 12-pole floater built by Kent Armstrong for my Golden Eagle and love it. https://www.archtop.com/ac_access.html
  15. Mike...Hello and Welcome to the HOC! That's a beautiful H535 you have there. And nice calipers too.
  16. Welcome to the HOC, Bobby. Thanks for sharing your Dad's very interesting history as well as his association with the master, Johnny Smith. As Skydog52 mentioned above, check for more details on the JS inside label as well as the rear of the headstock. Here's an old ad mentioning the Emrad Johnny Smith Amp. Those 100 beasts came with a JBL speaker. Must have been one loud tone monster.
  17. Wow, that one-piece top is drop dead gorgeous! And your factory tour-de-force is appropriately named "Mabil". Play it in good health, and welcome to the HOC.
  18. Wow, that is one sexy 575 you've got there! Welcome to the HOC. Play it in good health.
  19. Hey Dex, your excitement is obvious...and for obvious reasons! That is one gorgeous 535 you've scored. Congratulations and Welcome to the HOC.
