NGD... 1959 Les Paul!
« on: August 02, 2014, 11:05:09 PM »
Ok, it's not really a 1959, but the great folks at Heritage Guitars did their best to recreate Peter Green's legendary Les Paul....

1959 neck profile ( range of .886 at the nut), c shape.  One piece mahogany body, near prefect book matched top, Seth Lover pickups, and Sperzel Tuners....

Great looking guitar! Guess the price was adequate, but still far from Gibson? The word is Hritage is cheaper and better than the real thing, only resell value is not so good.

I don't know about you, but from this point (in my life) if I ever have to consider resale value on something I'm considerin' buyin'..........I won't buy it. It's easier just to "give" away $$$ straight up (low ballers want donations) than to TRY to sell a piece of gear these days. At least in my (DC) area.

Anyways, Congrats DB! May it bring you years of "playin' pleasure"!

I don't care either, just perpetuating what I gathered by reading couple of guitar related forums.

Resale value is worse then Gibson for sure.  But that's good because I can afford them!

I'll see what I can do.  I don't have video, just audio.  But I'm no Robert, so don't expect much... I'll get something out soon...

I'd be scared the headstock would break, it's the only bad quality they share with Gibson.... 17degree headstocks that can snap during shipping.... Else I'd love to get your demo of it Robert!
