KCH Posted March 11 Share Posted March 11 (edited) I’m now the proud owner of a 2017 Heritage H-150 in Vintage Wineburst per the control cavity sticker which is actually a nice feature. I had been looking at Heritage for a while and the stars finally aligned. The guitar came with a custom made Gibson style pickguard and locking tuners. I put a poker chip on it to cover up a few scratches near the toggle and swapped out the knobs which I suspect were not original. So far I’m impressed with the overall fit, finish and sound. It’s obvious the nitro is thinner than a Gibson LP Standard which is nice. The rosewood fingerboard is smooth as silk, probably one of the best I have played. There are some quality and/or design things I have to work through. The nut is a bit sloppy. It looks like it was cut poorly from the factory and then someone tried filling it and now it’s way too high. The tailpiece also sits really high so I switched the Nashville bridge for an ABR-1 to help lower the tailpiece and then used Faber spacers to stiffen the gap in the tailpiece posts. I will probably do a full Faber hardware replacement down the road. It weighs right at 10 pounds and feels every bit of it. I gave it a quick setup and it plays well despite the nut and tailpiece issues. Im hoping that once I fix those things she will really sing. In the meantime, feel free to share any advice/tips/tricks/ideas you may have regarding Heritage or the H-150. I’m excited to finally be a part of the Heritage club.
