Your All Time FAVORITE Heritage Guitar is...??

Recommended Posts

OK...I've taken all of my "H" ladies to the woodshed for spanking.  My all time favorite is based on good looks, great playing feel, excellent tone and overall versatility.

For me there is nothing else that brings all of those qualities together like the Y2K Millennium Eagle.

Great looks, great comfort, and great sound. Millies really hit the sweet spot.

Kuz, your Florentine Golden Eagle is one my favorites.  What a beautiful archtop!

It's funny, P90 guitars immediately stir up raunchy in my mind (ie George Thorogood), and that guitar looks too beautiful to "raunch" it up, but I bet it can! Great looking guitar! And with a center block I'm sure you can turn it up!!!

This man speaks the truth!

Speaking of the next one, how are the twins? I  don't recall seeing a review. Now that you guys have had them for a while what are your thoughts? Share some of that Pete Farmer magic.

Solid Maple top/back/sides.  No plywood on this toneful archtop.  (Millenium Maestro has first dibs).  :rolleyes:

That's a really pretty 550!  Congrats.  I've probably told the story too many times, but when I had a chance to go back to playing, after a long hiatus from approx. '83, I found myself without the gear of the time.  I had a G Super 400, which I sold to fund updating my gear --SRV Strat, Rivera Duarte-- with the understanding with myself I would also buy a good jazz guitar to replace the Super4  So, first Heritage was a 550 custom, natural with gold hardware, from Ithaca Guitar Works.   A really fine guitar, and my introduction to the brand.

There are so many beauties here!

I'll have to cheat and post two. My H-357 and my H-150. I worked closely with Marv on both of these. I was fortunate enough to be able to pick out the wood for the 150 at the factory with Jim and Marv when I picked up my 357. They both turned out wonderful.

The neck on the 150 is exceptional!    Both are great examples of Heritage quality and custom features.

That 5 pc maple neck is crazy!!  Didn't Paul also have a similar custom 150 or 157?

My favorite Heritage guitars are Millies.

The natural finish Millie is a Pete Farmer build from January 2019 and the sunburst finish Millie is a Marv and Jim build from March 2011.

If this parade of amazing Heritage beauties keeps up, we just might spark more custom jobs for the factory. 

Or maybe this will convince the factory that a few more models should be added to the current 'standard' lineup. 

Either way, let's see more of everyone's favorite Heritage guitars!  What's in your closets?
