    Another odd duck Heritage finds its way to Paw Paw!

    A 1985 H 140 with an HOCKEY STICK headstock!

    This H140 was built very early in Heritage's history. They were doing a lot of experimenting to see what the market would take. This guitar could have been a special order, or it could have been one of those things where they had this neck sitting there...and that body...and somebody said, "F**k it, put em together"

    This bad boy came from the factory with a Kahler 3200 locking trem. Luckily it was the old style that sits on the posts for a standard LP bridge/tailpiece configuration. I decided to s**t can the Kahler and put a Nashville style bridge and tailpice on the guitar. It came with locking Grovers, which was a big plus.

    It has a monster flame maple top. One piece mahogany body and neck and a beautiful rosewood board.

    I gutted the electronics. Installed 4 new CTS pots with NOS Russian PIO caps and a set of Custom wound Alnico II humbuckers wound by Connor Baldacci

    This guitar has seen some action in its life....headstock repair, dings, dents scratches, etc. But I gotta tell ya, this thing SCREAMS TONE!!!!! Nice, low action...medium/slim neck. And its very light!!

    Hu... it's a Signature model...

    I can't make out the name on the TRC but it's a Signature model.

    I suggest you contact Heritage Guitars.
    You might get a nice story to tell.

    I remember Aldo Nova playing a very similar Gibby back in the day.

    :D

    Still, contact Heritage.
    Or it might have been their "copy" of the similar Gibson model.
    Originally made for Aldo Nova.
    I think only 6 were made for him.
    Cheap Trick's Rick Neilsen has/was given one.
