A quote from "THE TERMINATOR"

 

This is the Heritage guitar of the same name....a little Heritage History!

 

From 1985...Heritage's effort to get into the "Hair Metal" scene.    They made the Terminator and the Exterminator....both guitars designed by Marv Lamb and Jim Derlou.

 

These guitars did not stay in production very long...very few were made.   Maybe 15-20 of each?

 

This one is the Terminator...

 

Mahogany body

Mahogany neck

Rosewood fretboard....this one, looks like Brazilian?

2 humbuckers, master vol, master tone, 3 way toggle

24.75 scale

Kahler 3200 tem system, factory installed

 

I picked this one up from Carters Vintage, in Nashville.   I was very surprised to see the factory case.   Its been played a lot...modded with active EMGs.   The frets have been dressed down to almost fretless wonder status.  (i may have it re fretted)

 

Surprisingly, the EMGs dont sound terrible...I kinda like em.

 

The fretboard on this guitar is incredible!!!!   

 

It plays really good for a low/flat fret setup...it think it would play much better with some medium jumbos!!!

I'm waiting for the cover and conversion to a stop tail bridge!

To be perfectly honest, I had all intentions of converting this over to a Hardtail. But I wanted to give the Kayler a good shot. I got it all strung up and set up and the Kahler performs extremely well. I was very surprised.

I really dig these old and unusual Heritages.  A piece of Parsons Street history .... 

Great job in getting it fine tuned, Brent.
