I finally bought a Heritage H-150!  I've wanted one since buying my H-535 last year.  Like my H-535, this will replace a similar Gibson.  It was dirty, and the nut needed a little attention, but It's all good now.  What a nice guitar!

The weight of this guitar is just right for me- just under 9 pounds.  The neck is a nice rounded shape and good size.  The pickups are a tad hotter than I like- maybe because of the alnico 5 magnets, but I don't plan to change them.  I changed the wiring to so called Gibson '50s wiring.  I do that on every guitar- including my H-535.  It works for me.

I was surprised about the nut.  The string height over the all of the frets was good, but the high E and B strings buzzed like a sitar.  It turns out that there wasn't enough back angle it the slots towards the headstock.  A few swipes of a nut file fixed that.  I assume the guitar shipped that way.
