Highest price ever paid for a Heritage guitar?


Recommended Posts

A discussion over on Baywatch got me to wondering what the highest price ever paid for a Heritage might be.  Does anyone know?  They made a Golden Eagle a couple of years ago that was listed for about 9K, and since I don't see it available anymore I'm guessing it sold.  When I first became aware of the brand in the late 90's a little over 3k was about the most I ever even saw one offered for.  (I know, time . . . that old thing). I'm not necessarily looking for an exact number but maybe anecdotal info that you remember?

They made so many highly customized guitars, wouldn't that be difficult to know what sold for the most?

That said, wasn't the American Eagle one of their most expensive archtops ever offered as a regular series model?

The Centurian screams "Let's party lie it's 1999!"

The Centurian is truly museum-worthy! 

The Prince Golden Eagle will likely be the highest priced Heritage if ever sold at auction like his other custom guitars were.  Not my cup of tea, but fans love collectibles from their favorite artists.  Some of Prince's guitars sold for over $500k!

Here's a thread from 2016 discussing it FYI.

Another look of it at Prince's home.

I know what the highest price that I paid for a Heritage guitar. I won't discuss the price, but it was an Alex Skolnick signature H150

That headstock is a work of art 😍

That whole guitar is a piece of a craftsman's nightmare to build yet a stunning piece of eye-candy!
