    I know there has to be some Heritage owners out there! Living so close to the historic 225 Parsons Street Plant, it is hard to stay away from these great guitars! Lots of history there and lots of great guitars for the masses!!! It is nice to see that Heritage is alive and kickin'.

    These are my 2 Heritages i have now...a 1988 "Stat" and a one off 1986 H 140 Custom. I have a 1999 H 170 on the way (will share pics when it arrives)...so lets see 'em!!!

    I've got a custom 535 on order, I'll try to remember to post pictures when it arrives (~ 2 weeks).

    Here are a couple of my '96 H-575. Not a super high-end digital camera, though, so sorry for the so-so picture quality.

    I also have a flame-y H-150CM; I'll take a couple pics of that and post 'em.

    And thanks for starting this thread! Always nice to see some Heritage....

    I am within 3 miles of the factory. How can I get my hands on one for less than $600?

    Other than paying a thief to rip one off for you, I doubt you can. Try about a grand.

    I take it you like the P92s? I've been giving those some thought, I'm a Fralin guy anyway.
    What was in your guitars and how do the P92s compare.
    The Seth Lover's in mt H535 sound good, just a little plain.

    First of all I love your "bench" sig.
    I had HRWs (Schaller) in the Prospect and the Sweet 16 dates back to 1997 so I suspect it was a Schaller.
    I got tired of the woofy bottom end of humbuckers in general, so I had the P-92s installed in the Prospect. I love them. They have the push of a humbucker with the typical Fralin sweet top end and much more articulated bottom. They're not really in your face in the mids like a regular P-90, which I liked too. TGPer TNJ was playing my Prospect through my Victoria Regal II running a 6L6 and a 6V6 and he got the Larry Carlton Kid Charlemagne tone dead on.
    I haven't picked up the Sweet 16 yet ... it's due this week. I don't like the typical muffled "jazz" tone in the '16 so I decided to go with the P-92 there too.
    I also just picked up a Zoom H-2, so I'm gonna post a few clips over the next few weeks.

    Millennium Double Cut with HRWs:

    And an original run H137D with a Schaller neck (not bad) and an SD Custom Custom bridge:

    I have a pair of HRWs that I picked up off the For Sale board at the Heritage Owners Club last fall. I'm going to put them in the 137 once I get some time.

    I've got a great sounding H-550 with HRW pickups -- those things are mofos!

    It's a really cool guitar; well built, sounds great, nitro finish, the only thing that doesn't rock my world is that the neck is a trifle skinny . . .

    Here she is:

    Enjoy,
