Yes I have seen that model before and it is stunning. It made me mad that I don't like the company anymore. I have issues to work out.

That's pretty cool. It's nice to see some Heritage customs out in the wild.

Have you seen this H-550 at Sweetwater?

I'm a huge fan of the standard H-550, but trans-black with a Bigsby...Umm...NO!

Looks like a 150 sized, ebony board 137 for just twice the price!  Golly.

Tim,   

 

 The custom shop 155 was more interesting to me.

I have no interest other than sharing the news of an unusual (and expensive) custom model.  It is great to see Heritage expanding their market for specialty models.

They had some very nice pieces at NAMM as Paul noted.

Wow, 7k is a huge price tag for that 550. For that price you could get into an original ES350 from the 40s or 50s. Well not a PAF version but the p90 ones for sure or a HB equipped on from the 60s. The late 40s were a special time for the ES and CES g brand guitars, that is where my $6,999 would go first.

But it has a ToneSucker(tm) and that adds tremendously to the value of any instrument.

I still think it is a beautiful combo of color and simplicity. Unfortunately times are tough and I have plenty of guitars.

Also why do folks discredit Bigsby trems so much? Tone suckers? I don't know , I have never had one . I have heard

great players use them and had not thought they had inferior tone. Inquiring minds want to know.

Stay safe,

Yes I post a picture of these very rare birds once in a while to kindly urge Heritage to build me one with p-90's.

I have three including a custom model built by Kenny Rambow and Marv. Apparently they are too much "custom"

for the current custom shop to handle. I guy can hope.100_3418.thumb.jpg.ad78fcd5dce14ecc82a91b4857dd81a8.jpg

Interesting.

I had actually wondered if those guitars were a few of the "Rambo Customs" I'd seen around over the years, I know he was still making his guitars out of 225 as recently as 4 or 5 years ago. 

Ever tried contacting him directly to inquiry about having a P-90'd version of a Rambo that's modeled after the H-125? Perhaps he and Pete Moreno could make it happen together out of Moreno's shop.  Might be worth some pokin' around!

It wouldn't have occurred to me at the time, but now...if they'd made those in a four string, fretless, short-scale bass....
