Modded up my 535

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I spent the past few weeks modifying my 2022 H-535. I started by replacing the stock Duncan 59s and replaced them with a set of unpotted alnico III Custombuckers.  They really upgrade the sound.  My biggest gripe is that Heritage puts out such a premium guitar, but they choose pretty bland pickups in them. I also added Montreaux Time Machine reflector knobs and orange switch tip. I replaced the bridge and tailpiece with Faber ones. It looked so odd with the stock tailpiece raised so high from the factory, this set allows the tailpiece to come back flush with the body. And finally, probably most uncommon of all the mods, I replaced the inlays with new ones. I must be pretty picky, because the inlays on the 12th through 21st frets are slightly smaller than the larger ones on frets 3 though 9.  Now they are all the same size and aesthetically it now looks good to me. Enjoy the pictures!

Wow. That's a lot of mods but you have it the way you want it. Looks great and you have your sound now.

I like all your choices. Enjoy!

Thanks for all the kind words, everyone. I can’t stop playing this one. My Les Pauls have been left to collect dust since this one arrived.
