  1. Hey Heritage Family! I have some questions about my beautiful/beloved 1989 Heritage H147. Most days i love it, and for a 28 year old guitar, it's in pretty damn good condition. No breaks/repairs at all. It's definitely got several scratches/dings/scuffs from plenty of playing, but it's still overall Pretty Good condition. It has the original Schaller Pickups, and an upgraded Bridge/Tailpiece (although i do still have the original Schaller Hardware) I also still have the original Hardshell case. I'm not sure what my plan is yet, but i'm basically curious [if i were to sell] how much i should start the price at. I am very hesitant to sell, because i so rarely see H147 guitars for sale, and i feel like it's an amazing piece of history to hold on to, but i'm curious what i could get for it if i were to sell. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much I've included a few pics for reference - Jesse
  2. My H140 just arrived - winning bid on eBay last week (some of you were probably watching the guitar). All I can say is WOW.... Not to offend any of you - but H140s always seem underrated. They are referred to the "little brother" of the 150s. I say they stand up against any guitar out there. First - let me share my Heritage journey intertwined with my guitar journey to list my credentials: I started playing in the 70s (I am 54). Back then everyone wanted new guitars, and you could what are now vintage collectibles for cheap. I had a pre-CBX Jazzmaster I bought for $75. I owned a 60s strat, a 60s SG with Maestro Vibrola, and then a Les Paul Special. I hung on to the Special for a while and liked that guitar, then later traded it in for a Gold Top. Flash forward to the future. In the early nineties, I was in Vancouver with my girlfriend on vacation. We walked past a music store, and I decided to pop in. I came across a used H140 with a Gold Top. It had Duncans installed (a 50 and an Alnico 2 neck). I was floored by the quality and the price (around $300). I grabbed it, even though I wasn't really looking for a guitar. That was my first Heritage guitar... In the late 2000s, I decided I liked acquiring guitars as much as I did playing them, although I have never owned more than 8 guitars at once (if one comes in, one goes out). I have owned probably between 130 - 150 guitars, including the better ones - all kinds of Heritage, PRS, Fender, Gibson, Tom Anderson, Suhr, one off luthier builds, Don Grosh, etc... In that time I have owned my first H140, 2 really nice H150s, 2 really nice H535s, a H170, a Stat, A H157, and now back to a H140 (full circle for my Heritage guitars). as I have owned some really nice guitars - and i have to say when I received the H140 yesterday and opened the box - I was once again floored by Heritage. I have had so many nice guitars that it takes a lot to blow me away - but this one grabbed me right away. It's a 2001, stunning craftsmanship, meatier than average Heritage neck, really nice looking rosewood on the fingerboard (multi-colors). And the maple cap on it looks like the best of the vintage Les Paul models - multi-dimensional when turned in light, stunning mineral streaks in the maple, and kind of a tobacco sunburst with some red in it. If I were to have a custom shop build - I could not have picked a more appropriate top for me. Screams 50s Les Paul vintage to me. I have some Duncan Antiquities I will install in it, and some Kluson tulip tuners I am going to put on for the heck of it. I would tell all of you - don't overlook the H140s. I got this for a really good price - and they are just as good (albeit different) as any of the other Heritage guitars. I love the H535s - but not crazy about their size. This is a very comfortable guitar for practice - and with the Duncans I know it will sound really nice. Although I had some beautiful H150s - they are a bit heavy and I prefer the H140 size (just as I liked by Gibson Les Paul Special early on). I also prefer dot fingerboards over bling. I have had many nice mother of pearl and abalone inlays over the years, but like to see the rosewood if it is nice wood. All - please heap on with H140 praises! I know some of you feel that they are underrated too. My pictures don't show the 3D dimension of the guitar.
