I was wondering about these aged H150s since i stumbled onto a SW add awhile back. Couldent find one that floated my boat untill 2 days ago! In the mean time i wanted to try some heritages and ordered a Chestnut burst and a non aged 150 dirty lemon.

Both are amazing quality the lemon is more of a plain top with a super dark board but has a tone that just punches you in the chest thick deep and knarly. The chestnut is similar a touch more treble but thick and full.

Now the aged..... amazing monster flame top. Aging is pretty neat similar to a murphy aged LP. Lighter FB and much more treble not a full or hit you in the chest punch. But sounds more vintage? More articulate? More airy if you will. Can only keep 2 (should only keep 1 really) the chestnut is staying for sure. Well onto pics!

On looks alone, it would be guitar No. 1 for me. Lemme know if you’re parting with it :)

Played the x3 H150s back to back for about an hour yesterday. I am keeping the heavy flame aged and chestnut.

The more plain top has punch and is louder but is dark almost muffled like a blanket is over the amp in tone.

The chestnut has the same loud punch but is much more clear and articulate.

The aged is less punchy/less girth but more sweet and vocal sounding like older 50s i hear in recordings. And hell look at that flame! Oh and being 8lb 14oz dosent hurt either!
