Another NGD!
« on: June 26, 2012, 01:53:25 PM »
I've been selling/trading/bartering for guitars lately, so here's my latest.  Sold the SG and was able to purchase another Heritage.
I only have three guitars, Epi Dot Deluxe, MIA Standard Strat, and now this: 
2004 Heritage H150 (think Gibson Les Paul Standard)
Seymour Duncan Seth Lover in the Neck
Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge
medium C neck profile (between the 50's and 60's profiles)

Man! That's really nice. Love that blue. I'm the market for another Les Paul type and I wouldn't mind gettin' one of those! Thing is, since you turned me on to those ('cause believe it or not, I never knew about them beforehand), I just don't see any in these parts (my area). Then again, there's not a whole lot of folks like us (guitar players) around me.

You won't find them in very many stores.  I only know of three or four in the United States that actually keeps some in stock.  Most are ordered through authorized dealers.  They have a forum in which there is a buy/sale section for them.

Oh! and don't think "Les Paul like" : these guitars are the original ones, all the Gibson since 1984 are copies...

Not many outside the Heritage world think that way...

I have been watching a Prestige LP on Ebay but it is  Korean made from Canadian timber,  solid mahogany body, maple top,grover tuners, Seymour Duncan JB & '59's.
Canadian timber sent to Korea to build & back to Canada for final setup I think.
Any thoughts on these ones guys?
I have seen a few reviews & they all seem positive.

I've seen them, many confuse those for Gibsons and Heritages... They are not.  But Korean made guitars are really well made in general.  PRS produces their SE models there.

I've been selling/trading/bartering for guitars lately, so here's my latest. 
Belated congrats on the guitar - looks a good 'un.  :)    Been too busy for much guitar foruming for too long - there's way to many unread threads showing up on here - it'll take weeks to work through them.  ::)

Seymour Duncan Seth Lover in the Neck
I've heard some great sounds from those pickups recently. Been giving me the pickup upgrade itch - but I've managed not to start scratching (yet).

But Korean made guitars are really well made in general.  PRS produces their SE models there.
If the SE single cut soapbar I have is anything to go by I'll agree very well made indeed. A change to 10s for strings instead of factory 9s and a change of pickups to Tonerider Vintage Alnico II P90s have made it the most enjoyable electric to play I've ever had. (And the past list includes some much pricier gear - Gibson SG Standard and MIJ Tokai Les Paul).

Actually, I found out the bridge is a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates...
