Heartfield

anyone ever had or played one of these guitars? The Talon II, IV, and V catch my eye and I was wondering if these are sold at a reasonable price (Im guessing they are all used now) Vinnie Moore Played these for awhile didn't he?

Re: Heartfield

If a strat and an RG550 had a child, that child would be named heartfield talon.

And they're very affordable.

now why haven't I heard of these before!! a long time ago i was looking for an affordable guitar with 24 frets and an ofr and now I find this!! I still would like an affordable 24fret, ofr guitar though so I might just get a talon haha. It would be my guitar that id bring with me everywhere, cause Im not going to carry around my american strat (my blues machine) and my ibanez rg2570 is great but whenever I want to practice at school or jam with a friend after school i dont feel safe leaving it even in my padlocked locker i keep my school upright bass in.

Re: Heartfield

I am guessing it is a lucky shot on Ebizzle to get one of these?

Re: Heartfield

here is one on ebizzle 220170491523 just it is all crapped up but I expect most of them to be since they are relatively old. this one only has 22 frets though so lame!

Re: Heartfield

Great guitars; I've got a Talon V. Japanese built (Hoshino!), good pickups (DiMarzios) and a super-thin neck. Keep your eye out for one in good shape.

Re: Heartfield

Pics!

How is the neck comapred to the Wizard? I'm not fond of necks as thin as the Wizard, and I've heard the Talon necks are a little more "D" shaped than the Wizards.

I hope it is Ibanez thin because for some reason I love that How much do you think one would go for? How much moola was your Talon V?

Re: Heartfield

I have 3 Heartfields... a Talon V, an Elan III, and a DR4C. They were all made by Fugi-gen... yes the same manufacturer of late '80's-late '90's high end Ibanez models.

Re: Heartfield

or me ...

Robotechnology, tell us more about your Talons. How are they compared to something like, say, an RG550?
