Simply put, the Artisan Aged Custom Core H-150 is a gorgeous solidbody electric guitar. And its playability is second to none. Its supremely eye-grabbing premium curly maple top sports a sleek redesigned carve, while its one-piece mahogany body is lightweight and comfortable. And everything is covered with a beautiful aged nitrocellulose lacquer finish. The Artisan Aged Custom Core H-150 features a comfortable '50s "C" shape; a long tenon ensures exceptional sustain and response. The neck is capped by an easy-playing rosewood fingerboard with a bone nut and medium-jumbo Jescar frets. You also get an optimized neck pitch, with a 17-degree headstock and 4.5-degree neck angle, plus a locking bridge and Heritage-branded tuners for rock-solid stability and intonation. Beyond that, a holly-veneered headstock with a pearl "Heritage" logo and a Twin Arrow inlay gives this guitar a distinct aura of exclusivity. The Artisan Aged Custom Core H-150 is destined to become the centerpiece of your guitar collection.
The Heritage Artisan Aged Custom Core H-150 is outfitted with a set of their Custom Shop 225 Classic humbuckers. These pickups were designed by Heritage's head of guitar research and development, Edwin Wilson, and were wound in-house. The guitarists here at Sweetwater have found 225 Classic pickups to be the perfect way to satisfy a hankering for vintage-inspired PAF-style tones. Whether you plug into a vintage tube combo or a modern high-gain amplifier, they deliver the goods. The Artisan Aged Custom Core H-150 also features CTS 500k potentiometers and Orange Drop 0.022uF capacitors.
For 68 years, 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan, was home to one of America's premier guitar manufacturers. In 1984, the company moved its operations. The next year, desiring to carry on the tradition of handcrafting electric guitars in Kalamazoo, three former senior employees who possessed a combined 84 years of guitar-building experience founded Heritage, buying space and much of the original equipment in the iconic factory. Heritage has since established its own tradition of quality by handcrafting guitars with flawless playability, tone, and visual appeal. Everybody loves vintage guitars. But if you're after a real-deal classic without the vintage markup, Heritage guitars are the way to go.
Heritage Guitars personally source the highest quality curly maple and ultra-lightweight genuine mahogany to craft the guitar body.
Developed in-house and tuned specifically for this guitar, these prized humbuckers have a versatile tonal range that excels in any genre or tone imaginable.
This finish has a vintage gloss that adds a subtle shine and smooth feel. It wears and ages throughout the guitar's lifetime. Also available in Artisan Aged finish.
Featuring the Heritage logo and a Twin Arrow inlay in vintage gloss, the headstock is complemented by 3x3 tuners laser-etched with Heritage graphics.
The '50s C-shaped neck profile is truly comfortable to play, while the locking bridge and aluminum stopbar tailpiece increase sustain and resonance.
Dedicated artisans draw on their experience and unmatched expertise to ensure that each and every guitar is built with pride, passion and attention to detail.
