Prestige Heritage Guitar Lake Elsinore CA

The Heritage’s sunburst, quiltedmaple top is stop-you-in-yourtracks stunning, so if you’re a slave to beautiful things, you’ll think nothing of paying $200 more than the Classic to call this beauty your own. Its gorgeous glow might even make you forget its weight—which may put gravity to work on some player’s shoulders a bit more than they’d like.

I tried the same test after plugging into the lead channel of the Mesa/Boogie Stiletto, and the Heritage consistently out-sustained the Classic by just a couple of seconds.Nod to Heritage.

No winner—totally up to user preference.
