1 man 2 h-160v

Recommended Posts

Finally...i did it!

I found my 2nd H-160v! 

As you can see is quite different from the one I already had (on the left): the body is clear while the other is almost cream, and even the fretboard is darker.

The other one has a hb SD Jeff Beck, this one is totally original!

I just wanted to show you my new toy... 😁

If your new H160v has the serial number, C 08603 which means it was built October 6th 1986, I used to own it.

It has been refetted and PleKed to perfection. That's a Fab guitar.

Good times.

E serial both, same age of production.

The "cream one" is always on a stand and is often played, the "white one" I guess has passed most of its life in a closet

The "white" seems to be older from the serial number (E 16504, the cream is E 24101).

Both nice guitars and 3 Heritage in my collection!

I guess I am a little confused. I have what I think is an H-160 (fire engine red!) but it has the traditional strat five way switch. My Stat has the four mini switches like you H-160. So is mine just a later version?

If I'm not wrong h-160v and Stat are different models, both have a "strato" shape but they are different.

From my research it seems that only 20 h-160v were made... so I had 10% of the world production of this model 😅

Hey, thanks....mine must be an H-162. It has the pointy headstock and the strat style 5 way switch. It is really light so it must have a poplar body with a Kahler trem.

My Stat is a super strat style but mahogany body and maple top with binding. It has the 4 mini switches for the pick ups and set neck.

Interesting....my H-160 has a serial number of E20207. They must have been building them at the same time. I thought they may have developed them over the years....like I said, mine has the 5 way switch and also a maple  fretboard.

Hi everybody, after some research as you can see I found that about only 20 h-160v were made by Heritage... is it possible?
