So if there was a Heritage headstock thread, would it be all about Edwin Wilson?
The headstock on my Heritage doesn't bother me a bit; when you look at the guitar you know straight away what kind of solid body it is(!) still, if anything that headstock gives the guitar its own identity, which I think it's a very cool thing.
I hope Mr. Wilson can inject that "something" the Heritage (if that's not an apt name, I don't know what is) desperately needs, and without "touching" anything, so that the company can finally have its profile high enough and have their products compete with the big names.
I just hope they don't go down the Hamer way; very similar quality, products, overall direction, but hopefully different fate.
Had this Heritage waaay back in 92-93. Craftsmanship was superb but the Schaller hardware and pickups kinda stank. Replaced the pickups with DiMarzio PAFs and she sounded like a good Les. Really a nice axe. I agree a little more thought about the headstock design would have helped.
Always had a number of Gibsons was never interested or moved by the Heritage guitars or PRS for that matter. Hammer was another guitar that did nothing for me. To each their own
I still wish Edwin the best of luck..
Looks okay to me too. I definitely do not care for the new HS logo with "H" in a circle, however. Reminds me too much of Samick Guitars.
More yummy Heritage tone goodness..
re: the Heritage headstock dislikes
Here's a pic of my custom Heritage
I spec'd it out with the larger Super Eagle headstock a la Les Paul Custom, which also has a larger headstock vs LP Standard
I think it suits it well. I call it the Bolero Signature model
Throbak SLE 101 pickups
Daves now sells Heritage. Saw it on their website today. FYI
This should be the new Heritage head stock. Mucho better!
The standard design may be an improvement from an engineering perspective, but it is lacking from the emotional perspective.
yeah I have no problems with their regular headstock; own a couple normal H150's. But this definitely has more bling: looks classy on that axe!!
which is a nod to the old Les Paul Customs. It is also a full mahogany body, like the old LPC's did
