I have two guitars of the same model: Heritage H-157. Both purchased this year, I bought the black one first, it's a 2007. Beat up a bit, but plays well and sounds great. Pickups were swapped to JB/Jazz at some point and it became my #1 pretty quickly. Enter the red one a month ago or so, Custom 5 in the bridge and 59 neck. Bought new from the shop, though it had been sitting there for a number of years. Didn't really need another but I loved the black one so much I wanted to get another and this is probably my last chance at a new one for a long time. Ended up paying less for it than the black one due to how long it had been in the shop. Recently I have been realising that the red one is a much better guitar, it plays and feels better and sounds more alive. I'm not sure if it's just the pickups and the strings (they seem quite different to what I normally use) but it just seems like a plain better guitar. I'm not sure what I should do with the black one. Is it possible that a good setup, maybe different pickups/pots and new pickups will bring it up to the standard of the red one? I still like it, but the red one is just flat out better, it sings more and feels more alive. The black one is probably better for heavy drop d riffing that's about it. I guess I just wish the black sounded as vibrant as the red. Anyone else been in a similar situation and what did you do? I've been contemplating selling the black but not sure if I would regret it.
