  1. Also the adjustment screws are toward the tailpiece, like they are on a Nashville.
  2. Thanks to you Daniel, I have Faber locking ABR-1 bridges on all my Stop-tail guitars. On Rob's Core 150 the bridge looks wider than an ABR, more the width of a Nashville bridge. At least that is how it looks to my eyes.
  3. Headstock, some of the Hog back, and top of the case please.... now that you know how to post photos.... LOL Also, do you have any thoughts on a poker chip and the metal pointer markers under the knobs to round out the vintage vibe?
  4. I have minty new guitars that I have played/gigged for years and babied. And I have new relic'd guitars that I have played/giged for years. I now prefer relic'd guitars. Why? Because I am not afraid to take out relic'd guitars to gigs/jams with without fear of a ding happening. AND I feel relic'd guitars feel better, lighter, and have less finish so they sound better. The BEST argument I heard for relic'd guitars was this comment; "Everyone talks about true, honest, player-wear on vintage guitars. So people like the played-in wear on vintage guitars. BUT if they think about it, it was
  5. While I do see a small resemblance in the style, I have to adamantly disagree about a better voice. Sean's voice was better. And the playing between the two are very different. In that tonight show clip, (just my opinion) was some fretboard gymnastics that didn't provide (for me) a melodic solo. Sean's vocals would have howled in pain & anguish and his solo would have had a less notes but would have still alternated in & out of pentatonic and modal scales, crafting a melodic soulful gem. PLEASE don't take this the wrong way. I am not dumping on you or Marcus. I am just seei
  6. It also looks like the saddles are cut a bit low (over-cut where the strings sit) as well. Maybe buying some new saddles (or even buying higher saddles than what normally comes with this bridge, would help) and re-cutting them less could help. FWIW, all the Heritages I have owned I changed to Faber bridges & stoptails. Everyone (including the many I have sold) had correct neck angles and the strings cleared bridges and the locking aluminum stoptails could be cranked down to the body. This guitar is a perfect example of why I (personally) won't buy a guitar that is top wrapped.
  7. I don't want to start this debate again, but...... -I have owned over 14 Heritage guitars, all before 2010. -I have played many of the newer ownership Heritage guitars made since 2016. -I am not going to tell you which are better, because I certainly can't tell. Each guitar is unique to it's self. But I will give this advice... If you listen to many here that have NEVER played a newer ownership Heritage but claim the quality control is universally better than pre-2016 Heritages.... you are doing yourself a disservice. Judge each Heritage on it's own merit and let your
  8. I spoke with (Steve, maybe?) years ago when I had my Rambler and he confirmed it was based off a Blackface Deluxe Reverb, definitely American voicing, not Marshall voiced.
  9. I had one. It is a great amp but (IMHO) it couldn't touch my vintage Deluxe Reverb or my vintage Vibrolux Reverb so I sold it. It just wasn't quite as open, 3D, and chimey as my vintage Fenders. (IMHO) I would get a vintage Blackface or Silverface Deluxe Reverb instead. If that is not an option, I would buy a used Rambler (with the depreciation) over a new one.

    Mark, it is great when the chemistry of the band comes together and it looks like you are finally there! I love all my guitars and currently don't have any PRS guitars. But I can tell you that from my experience PRS guitars are the most versatile guitars out there. Get a PRS with a Trem and they can sound close to a LP & SG, and the coil tapping is surprisingly good for Strat & Tele tones. If I could only have one guitar for a gig, a Trem equipped PRS with coil tapping would be the one. I will eventually get another PRS DGT, but I have two kids with college expenses right around t

  12. That's a shame Mark, but you showed a lot of patience. Time to move ahead with a new guitarist. Life is too short not to enjoy yourself playing out at gigs!
  13. Mark, it is always good to feel vindicated. And why is it that the truth always comes around after the fact? I am glad the band is still together and hope your drummer is up and running (or at least up and walking) soon! Yea, turning on the footswitch for the lights helps. Lately, I learned that plugging the input cord from my pedal board to my amp helps make my guitar sound louder!!!! Ha, ha
