A 1980 Heritage is my dream guitar. Thatís my birth year and the sound of those Shawbuckers haunt me.

Thanks! And yes, that does make sense.

It's those little nuances that make a great solo. And those little nuances are harder to do well than most people realize.

But again I do not know if that is the pick up per se, or in the tone knob switching electronics But that is the only improvement I could think to possibly make and by no means something to make me want to get something different .
Thanks for the tip and info I will put it my mental catalog of electric info . At this point I am not really comfortable or particularly inclined to make any DIY mods to the guitar or take to a luthier . In my limited electric experience, it is such a nice guitar to play as is, and volume knob is so smooth and scalable than the slight roll makes it so easily compensated for, as to be a pretty much a non issue at this point.

Okay, it reads like you need to get going down the amp rabbit hole unless youíve started that journey and Iím not seeing it.

I played my CE-22 with the Dragon II pickups on the week-end. Sounded better than I remembered. Must be the Traynor amp that's making them sounds nice .
