Revered for its elegance, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 Plain Top blends tradition with simplicity to deliver a refined look and timeless tone. This guitar is crafted in the factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, and features the finest plain maple top and lightweight genuine mahogany back.
A nitrocellulose finish with vintage gloss adds a subtle shine and velvety smooth feel to this guitar, and ages beautifully over time. With a redesigned carve top, 17° headstock and 4.5° neck angle, the Custom Core H-150 is optimized for excellent playability.
This guitar is fitted with the Heritage Custom 225 Classic humbuckers. Designed and wound in-house, these vintage-inspired pickups are tuned for the Heritage Custom Core H-150 and excel in both clean and overdriven tones. Other notable features include a ’50s C-shaped neck profile and a locking bridge with aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The headstock has a holly veneer and carries the ‚Heritage‘ logo with a Twin Arrow inlay.
The Heritage Custom Core H-150 Plain Top is available in three colors, with the option for an Artisan Aged treatment. It comes in a newly-designed hardshell case, with a certificate of authenticity and case candies included.
