You can imagine my excitement...

After i sold the korina 357 to Lance, which i will forever regret, I have been on a quest for another 357.** As most of you know a pelham blue 357 was posted here a couple days ago and i was lucky enough to score it....THANKS JOEY!!!!* A great seller!!!

So here it is....

Very nice! Lots of play love on her!

Like the color too! :thumb:

By comparison my 553 hollow-body in tobacco burst looks positively BORING! :D

HNGD to you! :)

I love Firebirds, mine is TV blue what ever that is. They can really push others noise out of the way on stage. Maybe it is just that stop in your tracks look they have. It had Classic 57s and now mini humbuckers. I hope you enjoy your Bird, I think you will.

Well, first off, I would like to give a HUGE THANKS to everyone at Heritage!!!!

As always, they made Liz and I feel so welcome!!*

I took the H357 in to be check out by the masters (Jim, Ren and Bill)** Bill took the serial number to Ron, who has the "book"* the old notebook log of past Heritage serial numbers that Floyd Newton used to keep in the finishing dept.** Ron was able to find the serial number of my 357, and it was in fact the first H357 produced by Heritage, the Prototype (by the P stamped on the back of the headstock)** Jim and Bill*confirmed by looking over the gutiar.** Jim thinks that is was shipped accidently....Jim said it was*Bills fault, Bill said it was Jims fault...lol...in a funny kind of comedic banter.

Everyone was as surprised as I was.** Ron asked me if he could photograph it for their archives....of course,* I accepted.*** He has a little studio set up to shoot guitars and it is high tech!!!

So, at break time, we all enjoyed the 2 dozen doughnuts Lizzy and I brought and then moved on "Rens Picking Parlor" for a group shot of this piece of Heritage History!

What other guitar company would extend this kind of courtesy and friendliness?* Digging into 30+ year old records to check out 1 guitar.

The new shop is AMAZING!!!!** Dust free!** Everything has a place...a well oiled machine!!!

Heritage is alive and well....and kicking ass!!!** You should see the new guitars they are making....HOLY S**T!!!!** BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

The thing that is killing me right now is that right after Lizzy and I got back, we had to take off for the weekend!!!!

She's sitting there all alone!!!
