    Yeah, nothing beats a Heritage finish by Floyd. Heritage Antique Sunburst gives me instant and involuntary GAS.

    I forget if if it was amarv Lamb or JP Moats who used to roll the necks, but they were sublime. I traded a perfect Benedetto Bambino Deluxe for a Heritage 525 in part because I just love Heritage necks.

    That’s Toty Violas old guitar, was mine for a bit too, I sold it back to Bob. When I met George Benson I told him I bought that and he said in his sorta raspy voice, “Man that’s a great guitar...”

    I'm sure Benson's creativity was totally blocked by the headstock, when he wasn't worrying if the luthiers had worked for Norlin (after they all started at Gibson in the 1950s), the neck was skinnier than the prescribed shape on the GearPage, and a top that was resonant and vintage like vs being overbuilt to avoid mass production warranty issues. Oh, and how he survived playing those "bad electronics" Seymour Duncan pickups instead of $1,000 boutique models blessed with holy water from the bathroom next to where they wound the original PAFs?

    ?WHAT are you talking about. Are you joking ?? Have you ever played this guitar ??? Please amplify your comments... The pickup are Lollar Low Winds, it's got a great neck and the tone is wonderful. I sold it back to Bob (RhoadsScholar) because he missed it so much. Have you played this guitar too ??

    Fortunate to have Big Mike and Marty Grass as friends on this forum. At least half of the guitars I have in my collection have passed through either Big Mike or Marty Grass (and sometimes both). Both have been generous when the opportunity presented itself for me to get something back. All I need is one more guitar and I am set.

    I would love to participate in this Heritage archtop love fest . . . unfortunately my archtops are Gibson and Eastman BUT I have been playing a 535 since '93 that I would never part with - this is it's twin
    Heritage Guitar Uproar-img_0483-jpg
    Not an archtop but still a great looking and playing guitar.
    The only change I have made is the bridge, swapped out the roller for a nashville, improved the intonation.

    It was one of the most beautiful Heritage guitars I've owned. Photos didn't do it justice.

    AND I agree with Thumpalumpacus, better to celebrate the Heritage that was, than to mourn in bitterness about their loss. Everything in life has an expiration date...such is life. Heritage was a great thing for many, and for many many years. Hats off to the builders of so many iconic archtops!

    back when I got a real Jones for 18" Super Eagles. The far left was a Super Kenny Burrell in OSB - old sunburst. Floyd really outdid himself with that finish

    Thanks 2b, ive had a bunch of these cross my path, but none
    as good as this one. The arch is perfect, no collapse on top
    and its a very responsive guitar, not tight or bright. Im really enjoying this one.

    it was also the only cigar I ever had.
    New Years Eve, 1998. Party at Tommy Grillo’s House. We smoked these, and drank Sambuca Black, frozen.
    i never got so sick in my life. I crawled home (right next door. Thank God). When I got home all the batteries died in the smoke detectors, and my wife insisted that I change every one of them. Including the one in our master bedroom which had 16 ft ceilings.
    I have not smoked or drank any of that shit ever since..
