I own both Heritages and Larrivee's. And I play both out. It's a close match for either guitar manufacturer.

My Heritage Prospect is about as close to the perfect guitar as you can get (totally subjective and personal opinon  ). Lightweight, perfect build, plays well as a clean baby or nasty brat. Comfortable enough to wear all night.

My Larrivee RS4  is about as close to the perfect guitar as you can get (totally subjective and personal opinon  ). Lightweight, perfect build, plays well as a clean baby or nasty brat. Comfortable enough to wear all night.

Oh wow ... deja vu. (i was going to post the same about the RS2, but i thought that might be pushing the pun  )

And don't forget the Heritage/Larrivee connection. Back in Heritage's start-up days JL built the bodies for the Heritage acoustic line. The k'zoo boys then put their necks on and finished the guitars. Everyone I know that has one thinks they are stellar!

Thanks for that piece of information. I did not know that. Interesting. By the way, my RS-4 is  perfect, as far as I can tell.

I'd never heard this before! What years did Larrivee build the bodies for Heritage?

I wouldn't even compare the RS4 to the 157 to be honest. They're two different animals.

Might as well compare it to a PRS or a Carvin CT, maybe even a Heritage 170. The 157 and RS4 are both dual humbucker guitars, for me the similarity ends there.

The RS4 hangs on the strap and sits more like an SG than a Les Paul, for me anyway. I'm not saying either is better, they're both good, just different flavours of ice cream.

It's all good

Thats exactly how I've been describing the RS2.

To me the biggest difference - in both feel and tone - is the different scale length. I like 25.5" scale on double humbucker guitars (I have four electrics with these specs), some folks don't ... it's all in the variety!

I know exactly what you're saying. I started off on Fenders and played mostly those for a long time. These days I have double humbucker guitars with 24 3/4" and 25 1/2" scale length, and one or two in between at 25".

The scale length of the guitar doesn't concern me when I'm playing it, I know with some players it is a big deal, maybe because I started off on the longer Fender scale length, I don't know.

And yes variety is where it's at, vanilla one day, chocolate the next

I find I have more trouble with neck width and depth than I do with scale length when switching from guitar to guitar. Altho', I will say going from a 22 fret to a 21 fret has given me some fits in the past.
