Heritage Standard H-150 LP Guitar Original Burst-Killer Flame Top W/Case.
Handcrafted in Kalamazoo Michigan.
I believe this is the ‘Original Burst’ as Heritage calls it, but it is more of a ‘Bourbon Burst’ type color to me.
Check out the top on this one. VERY nice flame top, almost a chevron type of flame. You will not find many tops better than this in this model Heritage.
Excellent condition, this guitar has no issues.
Plays great. Gibsons in this price range can only WISH they played like this Heritage does.
All around killer guitar in superb condition with original case.
As far as classic-inspired solidbody electrics go, the Heritage Standard H-150 is the real deal. Its curly maple top is supremely eye catching, and its single-cut body will feel as familiar as the back of your hand. Plug in, and you’ll experience magical PAF tones, thanks to a duo of Seymour Duncan humbuckers. And you’ll appreciate this guitar’s comfortable rolled Standard “C”-shaped neck and easy-playing rosewood fingerboard — precision Plek’d for maximum sustain and optimized playability. The Standard H-150’s stability and intonation are rock solid, thanks to a non-locking Tune-o-matic bridge and high-quality Grover tuners. Featuring cream-colored body binding, a “The Heritage” sticker headstock logo, and classic-style trapezoid fingerboard inlays, the Standard H-150 was carefully handcrafted in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Destined to become the centerpiece of your collection
Simply put, the Standard H-150 is a gorgeous solidbody electric guitar. And it plays like a dream. A supremely eye-grabbing curly maple top rests on top of a genuine mahogany body, all covered with a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Standard H-150’s rolled neck features a comfortable Standard “C” shape; a long tenon ensures exceptional sustain and response. The neck is capped by an easy-playing rosewood fingerboard with a bone nut and medium-jumbo Jescar frets. You also get a 5.5-degree neck angle, plus a non-locking Tune-o-matic bridge and Grover 18:01 tuners for rock-solid stability and intonation. Beyond that, cream-colored body binding, a “The Heritage” sticker headstock logo, and classic-style trapezoid fingerboard inlays give this guitar an attention-grabbing look. The Standard H-150 is destined to become the centerpiece of your guitar collection.
Seymour Duncan pickups deliver PAF goodness
The Heritage Standard H-150 is outfitted with a set of Seymour Duncan ’59 pickups. These pickups represent Seymour Duncan’s take on classic Seth Lover PAF (Patent Applied For) humbuckers from the late 1950s. All the classic ingredients are there, including plain enamel wire, a long-legged bottom plate, and a vintage-correct single-conductor cable. That said, these vintage-inspired humbuckers exhibit mids that are slightly more scooped than the Seth Lover model and are vacuum wax potted for squeal-free performance. The guitarists here at Sweetwater appreciate the versatility of these humbuckers. Whether you plug into a vintage tube combo or into a modern high-gain amplifier, they deliver the goods. Seymour Duncan ’59 pickups eschew the Seymour Duncan logo to maintain a period-correct look. The Standard H-150 features CTS 500k potentiometers and Vishay .022uF capacitors.
A tradition of quality handcrafted guitars
For 68 years, 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan, was home to one of America’s premier guitar manufacturers. In 1984, the company moved its operations. The next year, desiring to carry on the tradition of handcrafting electric guitars in Kalamazoo, three former senior employees — who possessed a combined 84 years of guitar-building experience — founded Heritage, buying space and much of the original equipment in the iconic factory. Heritage has since established its own tradition of quality by handcrafting guitars with flawless playability, tone, and visual appeal. Everybody loves vintage guitars. But if you’re after a real-deal classic without the vintage markup, Heritage guitars are the way to go.
