    After a brief search, I purchased this beauty. A good cleaning, string change and set up makes a world of difference. These are getting scarce and seem to get snapped up as soon as they are listed. Wish I had bought one new when they were at the dealers. Would have costs me a lot less. Great sound and feel, the neck is on the narrow side so getting used to that aspect. So far, so good!

    Absolutely brilliant! I am so glad you found one. You are right, they are becoming scarce, and they are fetching top dollar if you are lucky enough to find one.

    The AY models have incredible thin necks, escpeially the first5 frets. But, with a little play time it feels natural. I have one myself and just love it. Love to look it, love to play it. Can’t see myself parting with it.

    play in good health!

    Nice one!
    What color is this guitar? It does not look like anything I've seen before. First I thought it's black. Then I noticed that it is more brownish/reddish. But does not look like your usual cherry red. Or is it just the lighting in your photo?

    That little guy’s name is Banjo. Best little buddy ever. (He’s also a shelter rescue)!

    I believe it’s actually called “Aged cherry”, but it is such a deep rich beautiful color. I have 2 guitars in that color, but it is fairly rare and often never used. Not sure why, they should replace the heritage with it on my opinion, but what do I know... the worst color (to me) was the Ferrari red that they called cherry for a period. Nice on cars, not so much on guitars.

    it’s interesting, and I never noticed before, but the Volume knobs actually say “Volume” as appose to “Vol.” which I believe is how the Gibson witch hats were.

    Nothing wrong with either, just an observation
