I heard you start the comparison John.  Go back and read your posts.

Nope.  I said that if Heritage was forcing Custom Shop prices for a 137 that for that amount of money I (personally) would consider a similarly priced Collings 290.  This was based on the increased price of a CS Heritage 137.  I said it was a bad decision for Heritage to force Cust Shop prices for the 137 model.

I never said one was better than the other, even though I have played both models (where I doubt most here have). 

-I never said a "Collings 290 is "hands down got to be a better guitar".   

Congrats Josh!! I am so glad that it met your expectations!

Josh said;  "You'd love it John.  While I cannot compare it to a Collins, it is really well made and sounds fantastic."

So I don't know why the daggers are getting thrown at Collings Guitars and me.  I have done nothing but been excited about this build for those that bought one.  I even mentioned that I wished I had $1800 to buy one but didn't have the money right now.  So GREG please show me where I started a comparison of Collings Guitars & Heritage Guitars other than the CS-priced 137 & Collings 290 will be priced similarly now.

I'm sure it sounds amazing Josh.

But why all the comparisons to Collings or any other company?  Why can't it just be great all on it's own without subjective comparisons? 

I certainly never said anything to insist that my Collings are better than any other Heritage guitar, but now the Collings haters are coming out. 

I am going to leave this thread, enjoy your amazing 137!

I am in no way hating on Collins.  My apologies if you feel I’m attacking the brand.

I am using them as an example of high end manufacture in the same comparison people used to reference Gibbons Custom Shop quality over standard production.

Hopefully that makes sense.

Whatever.  
I was stating the prices between the two were similarly priced.  
I never said one was better than another (unlike what some others directly claimed).
