Like many other guitar makers, Heritage threw their hat into the shredder guitar market in the 80s. Heritage wasn't as successful as most, at least they tried....lol

This was Heritage's cream de la cream of their shredder line....the STAT DELUXE. There was a Standard STAT that was a flat top and different electronics configuration and a different headstock style (more like a strat)

I bought this guitar as a husk...well it had the tuners and nut on it. LOL

It has a bookmatched, carved flame maple top. Honduran mahogany body and neck (set neck), with an Indian rosewood fretboard.

I decided to put stock Schaller pickups back in it, just from a historical standpoint....but they really do sound great!!!

It came stock with the Kahler "Spyder" trem. Kahlers best trem system, IMO.

The neck is a medium C, with lots of dings n bumps on the back.....the guitar, as a whole, is in great shape for it age....its been played. Surprisingly enough, there are no headstock breaks, or tips broken off and repaired.

All in all a very fun guitar...and quite rare.

Why does yours have a plaza Corp logo?

wow - those gtr's look great. Cool that the charcoal one got brought back to life, and that green! I usually don't appreciate a green guitar, but that is awesome

Also - way cool steampunk guitar display in the first pic.

I was going to write, "the build quality looks excellent indeed" until I saw that neck joint, straight out of the 50's. What? I guess it's a "heritage" feature, not a flaw.

Wow! Never seen one of those before! Super quality AND rare! Rock on! Gary Moore used a few Heritage guitars back in the day....I can hear him shredding in my mind ...Out In the Fields......
