Prestige Heritage Guitar Vernon Rockville CT

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.

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. In any case, I wanted to see what the Heritage’s extra beef proposition brought to the tonal table. Acoustic sustain between the Heritage and Classic was about the same. I fretted and picked a few notes around each guitar’s neck with a 1mm pick—trying to keep the attack the same—and the notes would ring out for around six to seven seconds on each guitar. Draw. 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. Frequency-wise, both guitars are lively and articulate, but the Heritage has an ever-so-slightly darker timbre to its mids, while the Classic’s mids are a tad airier. No winner—totally up to user preference.
