  1. I came really close to pulling the trigger when I bought my new 150. That color in person is stunning. Congratulations on pickup up a fine guitar. Play it in good health!
  2. Yes, that's what he is doing. I had no idea you could do that. So I could effectively use a second input like a line out to another amp or a mixer?
  3. The guy I bought the Fender Blues Deluxe from mentioned to me that he connects the input jack from the Blues Deluxe into another small amp. The smaller amp is used as a reference amp when he is playing live. I've never heard of such a thing before. Anyone do this or know about?
  4. I've since upgraded the speaker to a Celestion Creamback Neo (a highly recommended upgrade from the FB Traynor Amp group). The amp is so killer!
  5. Looks great. Like the guitar rack too. That's really cool. Very tidy place indeed.
  6. Just regular old shellac from Home Depot?
  7. New Used Amp Day. Couldn’t find a taker for that Marshall DSL20C. Even loaded with a Celestion Creamback, no one is buying. So I went looking for a better pedal platform like a Fender HRD or Quilter MicroPro Mach II. Was offered a trade on a 1990’s Fender Blues Deluxe with a road case. Very similar to a HRD, 40W, 1x12 combo. Effects loop and spring reverb. Its tweed tolex is a little nasty, but it was a gigged amp for over 20 years. It had it power caps replaced a few years back. Everything sounded good on it.
  8. LOL, you're certainly not a no-one and well versed on the fretboard. My comment was a bit harsh, perhaps I'd say not as popular for many guitar players out there. Not a mass appeal, but does have a place in the world.
  9. Definitely just a simple factory error.
  10. But no one plays those big ol' gals. The new H575 retails prices are up in the $4.5K mark, but the equally priced Custom Cores outsell them. Rarity doesn't equal demand. I would imagine the H357 would sell instantly at $4-5K. I know people actively seeking one that are willing to pay now.
  11. With the larger guitar world more familiar with Heritage and the rarity of this model, I still say my estimate is correct. However, you're right its a matter of finding the right buyer, so it would take some time to sell.
  12. Is the Pinnacle bridge so bad it needs to be replaced? Or is this a law of diminishing returns where it's just a minor improvement for subtle change in tone/sustain? I noticed my son has the Pinnacle bridge on his H150, which is a bit older than mine, but came out of the factory a year ago. I really don't see much of a difference. My assumption is its a Pinnacle as it has an odd looking post.
  13. Looks great! If it functions well, its all good. Now I've seen a lot of YouTubers that have dozens of amp heads and I've been curious about how they connect to a cabinet or something to take the speaker load. How is that accomplished?
  14. Profile: Standard Line .8870” - 1.00” Custom core .8910” - .9805 As you can tell, not much of a difference. Pickups in this standard are SD .59’s. They sound just fine to me. Tuners are the Heritage stamped. So far they are okay. *edit* I don't have a scale, but she's a hefty gal. I've played it for over an hour at a time, close to 2 hours depending on the amount of time I have standing up. I have a wide, cushioned leather strap and it feels rather comfortable to me. I will be playing this guitar out, psychologically I feel more comfortable playing this instead of my 535 in a public setting. Can't wait to take it to rehearsals on Thursday. I'll get a feel for the pickups in the mix of the band plus see how comfortable it will be playing for a few hours. Regardless, I'll have my Telecaster and another yet to be determined guitar ready for playing backup anyway.
  15. Truth is a hard pill to swallow
  16. Absolutely! Time to bring her and my Traynor…
  17. Honestly, if it was the Korina, I’d said $8-$10K.
  18. Not sure if anyone guessed right, but here she is. 2023 Heritage H150 Standard Line. First time I’ve seen the stamped serial numbers. No more letters to start. Interesting.. Finish can look black, but it’s actually Oxblood. One thing I really love on the new Heritages, even the standard line is the neck is so much thicker! That’s what sold me on it. My son and one his buddies wanted to go pick it up from the Factory, he loves that place now. So a little road trip for them and a new guitar day for me… he did have the bragging rights of playing it first…
  19. Former Heritage artist, JL Fulks also did a comparative video the other day, although more aligned with a review of his CC 2 years later… https://youtu.be/qNDLi5zjxiY?si=JSu1KZC5NOZBmobK
  20. I've done the Seth Lover neck and Pearly Gates bridge. Sounds great to me. Hotter pickups can be compensated with turning up the OD a bit or a tad more gain. Difficult to clean them up.
  21. Mike is on vacation, should be back today or tomorrow. That's why I don't have my new guitar yet. Waiting for his return.
