Another odd duck Heritage finds its way to Paw Paw!
A 1985 H 140 with an HOCKEY STICK headstock!
This H140 was built very early in Heritage's history. They were doing a lot of experimenting to see what the market would take. This guitar could have been a special order, or it could have been one of those things where they had this neck sitting there...and that body...and somebody said, "F**k it, put em together"
This bad boy came from the factory with a Kahler 3200 locking trem. Luckily it was the old style that sits on the posts for a standard LP bridge/tailpiece configuration. I decided to s**t can the Kahler and put a Nashville style bridge and tailpice on the guitar. It came with locking Grovers, which was a big plus.
It has a monster flame maple top. One piece mahogany body and neck and a beautiful rosewood board.
I gutted the electronics. Installed 4 new CTS pots with NOS Russian PIO caps and a set of Custom wound Alnico II humbuckers wound by Connor Baldacci
This guitar has seen some action in its life....headstock repair, dings, dents scratches, etc. But I gotta tell ya, this thing SCREAMS TONE!!!!! Nice, low action...medium/slim neck. And its very light!!
