    Hi I came over from the Heritage Owners Club. You will probably get some stragglers from there soon,

    recent acquisition:

    I put p-rails in it since I took this photo series. I 'm working on some 6 position switches for the pickups

      Heritage Guitars operate out of the old Gibson plant in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

      When Gibson left, they let some of the employees stay behind and essentially make Les Pauls and ES335s under the Heritage name. Sometimes corporations can be decent - Gibson offered an alternative to the workers with families that wanted to stay!!

      Gibson only asked that the headstock be changed to avoid confusion. I believe the H150 is the LP standard model.

      From what I have heard, the QC on their models is better than Gibson. They also offer a few more options. No plastic inlays, etc. Wolfeguitars carries a lot of heritage models, many Lefty.

      One year they had a Korina-backed LP, under the Class of '59 series.

              the website is ass, but I dont care personally.
              we were just discussing this on the Heritage owner's club site below

              http://heritageguitar.com/

              that is the old Gibson plant in the photo.

              the 150 is pretty much a Les Paul. the 140 I posted is like a thinner Les Paul.
              they never made an Explorer I dont think- I might be wrong. But they did make a Firebird derivative.

              the quality is awesome, but there have been some rough patches . they are the real deal, tho. I have a 158 also:

              http://cjod.net/photos/H/H.html

              they make great hollow bodies, but if you are into shredding , they did this in the 90's and can be had relatively cheap(not as cheap as asian imprts, but ...)

              here's the H.O.C. you wil find a small group of dedicated lefties:

                there has been a LOT of discussion about the headstock over @ H.O.C also. You love it or hate it. Some people see it too close to an Aria proII kind of look. I'm a fan. some of their shredder guitars of the 90's had some crazy club foot styles . Sometimes you will come across a one-off that has a headstock that never appears again. I love me some Heritage

                  yeah, I dont think they did quite that, but here's the 357:

                  http://www.oldenburger-music-station...tage-H-357.htm

                  that in a lefty is a rare bird.

                  this one looks nice

                  http://tinyurl.com/b4bup3

                  and it is certainly worth 1200$ BIN, compared to a Gibson. But its a little more than I want to spend right now, and prefer a simpler top.

                          oh , and here's the Carvin I promised somebody:

                          http://cjod.net/cpg/thumbnails.php?album=4

                          this is what it looked like when I received it off the bay. Now it has a gun oil finish and a Bigsby.

                          ...... and sadly, no cabbage patch sticker on the back

                            One cool thing about this forum is that we're getting players of all types. Most of the boards are so brand specific there isn't any crossover.

                            Considering most of my guitars are "shred", it sure is nice to see what else is out there. Maybe I need P90s?

                              I like the head stock. Frankly, I don't really like Gibby head stocks. The only ones that really look any good are the big/long arrow, and the hockey stick.

                              I like the blue "David Paul Signature" on the models page. That is pretty sweet!
