Mike, I just recently got an Heir 4 but my wife took it until my birthday so I'm stuck to daydreaming. Anyway I was wondering if you play the Heir stock or are there any modifications you would recomend? I know some people have suggested modifying /upgrading the electronics. I believe the pickups are a non-standard size and a replacement would require routing. I didn't expect the maple top to look as good as it does so I'm reluctant to mess with it. Any info on the pickups or suggested electronic upgrades? BTW I really enjoy checking out your forum.
