    Yeah Heritage is staying where they are at. I just do not agree that a CNC or plek machine is bad like the fired employees made it out to be??? It IMPROVES the product....and does NOT take away from it.This whole attitude of CNC machines not being able to co-exsist with hand made is crazy! PRS does this all the time! And they are known for their QC! I just don't get it....BOTH should be able to co-exsist! At PRS you may have a CNC and plek maching doing some work...and then you have guys manually sanding the guitars down also....so I don't see the "rub"...."bub"!

    I quit my part time job at Starbucks in protest when the then CEO (from Wal-Mart) decided to switch to robot espresso machines, an brought ovens in to warm egg sandwiches.

    They’ve never recovered from it. :p

    Pray tell how did you warm the egg sandwiches before this?! My vivid imagination is doing somersaults! Did Sergio put them in a foil lined bag and nest on them like a mother hen?! Surely not, but I know from his “dimebag” series how ingenious he is. How did he do it?;)

    No, I was hoping that there was going to be an interesting story about the “egg sandwich warming”! Maybe some rhinestone, some gold leaf!!:D

    They were the Gibson factory until Henry took over, and moved the operation to Nashville. However, Heritage kept the old machinery, designs, and many of the workers.

    You’ve probably heard of Gibson.

    Good one, cause I couldn't bring anyone to mind that was a Heritage player.
    I will admit most of the time I've seen him playing Gibsons tho.
