No I don't remember them, but Australia is/was a backwater for guitars etc as the population is so small comparatively....  Looks like a great guitar, congratulations  :thumb-up: .  The finger board could use a drink though.
@ RG, the mirror scratch plate was a winner, looks great  :thumb-up:

Yes and I hate you.  Don't chat with me again on here  :lol:

 :lol:

Man such a fantastic axe and I'm soooooooooooo jealous!   :o

Wow that's so cool you own one.  That's a great axe that totally has been forgotten.

Same with the Fender HM only the Heartfield even more so.

The HM has been re-ssued I hear but they've done so many things wrong with it that it's not really a re-issue and not appealing at all.  Getting a HM is tough also as there is a lot of neck swapping goes on with them on the second hand market so something you need to watch out for if trying to buy one like I was doing.

On a good note I shifted a load of axes I no longer want which is freeing up my collection to allow me to get something like a HM now.  Going to focus on stuff I have been after for years.  Down to about 10-11 including a shortscale bass.

Haha yeah I've been looking for a while and there's not many on the market. Got it for $700 USD worth around $1000 in that condition if you can find one. The plastic is still on the fender badge on the case, amazing. Anyway yeah the HM Strat there are some used of seen and they go for about the same. Now I didn't see any physical difference on the HM reissue. possibly i am not that familiar with them. The owner of the heartfield fell and snapped his neck so a guy in San Diego was selling off his 75 plus guitar collection for him. Very cool guy tons of great stories. I wish I had more time to chat with him but I had another pickup on my way home but we planned on staying in touch. My other stop was for a Carvin sequencing power conditioner for $40 USD and oddly enough he worked at the Keissel guitar factory and that was the guitar division of carvin before they parted ways and closed the San Diego store. He said all the new carvin anything is now rebranded Chinese junk. Too bad Carvin was quality stuff. Anyways quite a day Lol.
