A quote from "THE TERMINATOR"

This is the Heritage guitar of the same name....a little Heritage History!

From 1985...Heritage's effort to get into the "Hair Metal" scene. They made the Terminator and the Exterminator....both guitars designed by Marv Lamb and Jim Derlou.

These guitars did not stay in production very long...very few were made. Maybe 15-20 of each?

This one is the Terminator...

Mahogany body
Mahogany neck
Rosewood fretboard....this one, looks like Brazilian?
2 humbuckers, master vol, master tone, 3 way toggle
24.75 scale
Kahler 3200 tem system, factory installed

I picked this one up from Carters Vintage, in Nashville. I was very surprised to see the factory case. Its been played a lot...modded with active EMGs. The frets have been dressed down to almost fretless wonder status. (i may have it re fretted)

Surprisingly, the EMGs dont sound terrible...I kinda like em.

The fretboard on this guitar is incredible!!!!

It plays really good for a low/flat fret setup...it think it would play much better with some medium jumbos!!!

That's one seriously pointy geetar - LOVE it! Nice Kahler too. I'm glad to see pointies like this still around. The shape reminds me a bit of my Kramer Focus 5000 (import Voyager)...

I didn’t really take notice of the fretboard in the other pics, but damn! Is that just insane figuring all over or is there some wear there too?
The fretboard itself is very clean. Which is kinda strange because the rest of the guitar has plenty of play wear.
