Tim, I think the center one in PK's photo is a 150 not a Millie. Or maybe I am wrong. 

It is.

You are all correct.  That middle gitfiddle is a 150.

  I got blinded by all the flames hanging on PK's wall of hot rods.  🤓

When I want to get my hot rod Soldano/Metropoulos/Marshall on, I whip out the H-575M Custom :)

@Steiner: 

OK, don't tease us with a close-cropped photo.  Let's see more of your gorgeous H575 Mahogany.  It must be as close to an L4CES Mahogany (my favorite Gibson archtop) as Heritage could do.

2 of my Hot Rods.

Got to pick out the top for the 157W with Pete, what a cool experience.  Saw it about a month later as the paint was curing during one of the factory tours.

I have some others Heritages as well, truly phenomenal instruments.

My first (real) electric was an L4CES.  I sold it and ordered this custom build - how lucky we were to have that custom opportunity.  Once I learned the gibson was veneered plywood back and sides, while the Heritage was solid wood, It became necessary. 

The untouched photo above was taken at PSP by the stellar Mrs. KBP810.  The two shots below are the new conifer top and buttery aged top.

This guitar has consistently produced a grin when placed in close proximity to 4x12 cabs fueled by high-gain amps.  That's why she's my Heritage Hot Rod!

@Steiner:   I have lusted in my heart for that 575M Custom for many, many years.  I thought it belonged to Dan (aka Spectrum).

 

@Mr.G:  2 absolutely smokin' hot Hot Rod Heritages!!  :occasion14:

That is the one that got me to wait 18 month for a build.

I was going to mention that Spectrum13 one-upped the game with his build; he included features on his custom build that I wish I had considered.  Water under the bridge and 20/20 hindsight doesn't sway my feelings for the guitar; I'm Still in love after all these years.

That said, perhaps we can get Spectrum13 to post his hot rod.  If we're lucky, It'll be his Custom H-575M Custom

Quilty 575 is more of a Cruiser...a low rider with tuck n roll interior.  Smoothness and comfort are her forte.

Ahhhh the one that got away, I was looking for a single Jazzbox, eyeing this at Jay's till it was gone to Cali!
I still don't have a jazzbox

This Heritage was once lost, but now it is found....

I bought this 535 Custom from Eddies in St. Louis.   It was broke in 3 pieces when I bought it.   I repaired it and its easily the best sounding and playing Heritage I have had in the last 10 years.

It sports Seth Lovers, Tone pros, locking Grovers and Blocks!

The best $650 I ever spent!!!

Awesome! I love that you put that back together, what a great way to “bond” with a guitar.

Here are my two 'Hot Rod Heritage Guitars'

My #1 Millie re-loaded with HRW Pickups.  Love this thing. Added a pickguard and 'LaFond' Model just like 'Les Paul' Model at the headstock (to keep me from selling it).

The other is a custom 555 3"" hollow body loaded with Lollar low winds. It also has a 25 1/2 scale length (Fender friendly).

Did you get a new "Hot Rod" car to go with the "Hot Rod" guitar Lyle? I'm loving both.

Nope.  Had the H535 coming up on 9 years.  The RS5, 9 months.  And it's a 2013, so hardly new.  Both are precision instruments, expertly crafted.

One of those guitars where I let it get away from me. Installed active SD Blackouts with gold covers and hid the battery under the rear control cover when I installed the required VOL and TONE controls.

The veneer and bridge suggest it is a Golden eagle.  I've never seen one with dot markers...?

It's a custom made Eagle from 1990 with some really neat appointments. It's kind of like a mahogany Johnny Smith.The rumor is that it was originally made for producer/engineer/musician  Bryce Roberts. He had a studio not far from  225 Parson St for many years and also worked for Chess and Motown. I can't confirm his ownership but dot markers and unbound "f" hole looks/sounds like his style. I first met him around 1970  and knew of him up until the early-mid 90's when he skipped town (Kalamazoo) with another mans wife. He was quite a character and one of the best damn jazz guitar players I've had the pleasure of meeting. He's been dead for quite some time now. I mentioned his name to Ren once, Ren gave me a long hard look with a wry smile while nodding his head and said nothing. The guitar has a lot of mojo and when I first touched  it I knew it was meant for me. It's a grave guitar. My son the jazz guitar player will inherit it.
