  1. You definitely wouldn't want to cover up that beautiful wood with a black stinger. She looks super... a Rose by any other name!
  2. Hi, I am new here.  I saw somewhere in a thread a while back you posted pictures of your 1987 h140 is that correct?

      I was winning it for $500...until a couple minutes ago.  Oh well.

      Very true.  I think if I were going to pay $1,300 and up for a guitar I would want to love it.  It's cool and novel and my fathers...but I don't love it.  Plus, I am getting some other of his personal things.  Win some.  Lose some, I suppose.  Thanks for the chat!!

  3. That's IT! I seemed to remember the strut, but Cissy was lost. Thanks Git!
  4. I got to play one at the 2017 PSP, It was a rubberized coating of some type. Here it was in action with the guys from Heritage. One question... does anyone remember the name of this song? I know it, have heard it before, but the name escapes me. I think it was actually in the soundtrack of a movie, although I can't remember which one.
  5. You made the Mt Dew come out of my nose..... you bum!
  6. Schaller hardware was standard for most Heritages in the early years. Schaller has ceased making some parts, which means that Heritage has moved to other supplies, Seymour Duncan and TonePros are the current suppliers. For example, my 2003 H-157 has Schaller pickups and bridge/tailpiece but Grover tuners. It seems that the knobs on yours have been changed. The H-147 was in the early Heritage catalogs, but was gone by 1993. You can find it in this 1989 catalog. I have an H140 and they are really great guitars. Enjoy it, and play it proudly.
  7. For sure, I've got one Vintage model. This is my 87 H140. Surely since it's that old, it must be worth at least 5 times what I paid for it! Maybe 10! The Millie LE is a 2000, the 157 is 2003 and the 535 is a 2005. I don't now if those would be considered vintage or not.
  8. I'm guessing that only a few people on here really know what goes into the Artisan Aging process. Its only been available for just over a year, and with last year's PSP being cancelled, we didn't have the opportunity to see the process. Looking at the Heritage website, it has the Artisan Aged line listed, but under each of the 4 colors available is Discontinued. I'm guessing they were testing the market, and any new aged guitars would be custom shop models, with the added price tag. It probably also means that means anyone wanting to get an aged model better grab one while t
  9. Its one thing to try to mimic the wear on a special guitar, like Rory's or Page or Hendrix. Fake relics mean nothing to me. If I am buying a new guitar, give it to me in pristine condition, and if it gets dinged and dented, well that's part of the process. When I was a kid, if my jeans got a rip in the knee, Mom put a patch on it. Any kid who came to school wearing something like this would be a candidate for clothes donations at Christmas. We would NEVER have bought a pair with rips already in them. They certainly wouldn't have paid $225.+ They sell new ones at Walmart f
  10. That one has the Schaller bridge, which is adjustable. The spacing on that one seems to be too wide. Standard humbucker spacing from outside pole to inside pole should be about 48-50mm. Set string spacing to 8mm, and your pole pieces should line up.
  11. The best fretwork on any of my guitars was on my Melancon ProArtist T. Gerard did marvelous work. The majority of his guitars also had stainless steel frets. I once had my Dean acoustic in for fret dressing. They came back looking like they were leveled with a wood rasp. I ended up pulling the strings and polishing them myself. I had my Taylor done by a different shop, and the guitar came back playing like a dream. I like the idea of the PLEK, but I'm not sure I would drive 200 miles to get it done. Closest places would be Nashville, Columbus OH, or Sweetwater in Ft
  12. I don't think the wooden guard was standard on the 140, but the boy's did so many customized items, anything is possible!
  13. For not knowing what you were doing, you sure did a good job!
  14. I'm with MartyGrass. The problem is that when there are 200 choices, it's hard to say know anything for certain. What's good for one is junk for another. As a wise man once said, "Just play the f*****g thing!"
  15. I really enjoyed the rough cut from 1995. Great post!
