H150 born 1993

Posted by Greeny in Heritage Guitars

Hello, dear fellow Heritage fans! Just wanted to introduce myself properly with pics and all (sorry for the long post that follows).

 

I'm Dmitry, I live in Germany and have primarily played small luthier made Teles (which some would call boutique) for the last coupla years. I have always been drawn to the looks and the tone of the LP, but never really could bond with the finish, feel and the scale when actually playing them. I gave it some tries - Gibson, Tokai, FGN and so on. I had a higher end Tokai for about a year, and while it sounded great, I didn't feel at home with it. In the end I settled for just beeing a Tele guy... 

 

Well, until two weeks ago, when I saw a beautiful used H150 on german EBay. The price was right, and I have read some good things about it lately, so I thought "let's give the mahog single cut another try, shall we"? Last week it arrived, and it may well be the long sought solution to the LP GAS. It's a great sounding, top-built LP-style with a comfy rather round neck that just felt right out of the box. And TONS of mojo...

 

Now, before going into details, I'll let the pics do some talking:

Facts that I have from the description and a brief conversation with Ren (who was absolutely great and fast in his response to my inquiry, thx a lot!!!)

 

Serial: J22605 (which makes it a fifth guitar made on the 05-19-1993.)

Model: H150

Pickups should be SD according to Ren (it says "Patent Pending" on the back of the PU)

Grover Heads

Schaller Bridge (whcih I find surprisingly like very much, even though it's not the classic LP style)

 

What I don't know:

 

- Is it a standard model H150?

- What's the official name of the colour?

- Which SD PUs should that be - I think they sound like 59's, but were that the stock PUs back then?

- Supposedly it is all original - were the pots used at that time 250 or 500k?

- General Question - are the maple tops solid maple with a thin flame veneer glued on top for the looks, or are they solid all the way? (Has nothing to do with tone and looks, I know, just out of curiousity)

- What are the most significant changes (if any) between an H150 of 1993 vs a modern one? Would it be only the bridge style?

 

Thx in advance for any comment, info and help, I'm very excited and proud to have become a HOC member.

 

Dmitry
