Wow, this is one nice looking Heritage! Easily one of the best looking tops I've seen in recent memory. Check out that gorgeous flame! Heritage Guitars was started by ex Gibson employees in the 1980's. They took over part of Gibson's historic Kalamazoo plant to build these great guitars. Many of the same Gibson workers that built guitars during the golden age now work at Heritage. The same workers, the same factory and even some of the same tooling as the original Les Pauls, ES-335's and Super 400's. The great part is that Heritage Guitars are reasonably priced. A great value for a Made in the USA instrument of this quality. Top notch specs throughout. The body of this H-150 is mahogany with a gorgeous carved maple top. The one piece mahogany neck features a bound rosewood fingerboard with pearloid trapezoid inlays. This example has some great pickup upgrades. A Dimarzio Super Distortion at the bridge and a Gibson Burstbucker #2 at the neck dish out big tone. A Tuneomatic bridge, stop tailpiece and Grover Rotomatic tuners keep it all solid. The finish is a gorgeous cherry sunburst lacquer. A gorgeous guitar with a hip vintage vibe. If you are looking for craftsmanship and value, look no further!

This Heritage plays great. It has nice low action and good feel. Comparable to most any Gibson Les Paul I've had in stock. The pickups sound great. The Dimarzio will push almost any amp into distortion easily while the Burstbucker is warm and smooth. A great combo for hard rock and heavier blues. Condition wise, this would be a great guitar for gigging. It shows light to moderate pick and clearcoat scratches on the front. The back shows some belt buckle wear and a few dings. Cool for most players. Not collector geek material. Comes in original hardshell case.

Heritage guitars are some of the best deals out there. Many players will take a Heritage over a Gibson citing better quality control and attention to detail. A new Les Paul Standard will cost you $2500.00 in stores and you probably won't get a top this nice. Why not buy a great guitar for less?
