Revered for its elegance, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 Plain Top blends tradition and simplicity to deliver a refined look with timeless tone. Built using original techniques over the decades, the refinement of the Plain Top is truly unmistakable.
This beautiful guitar is crafted in our historic factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, and features the finest plain maple top and lightweight genuine Honduran Mahogany back. A nitrocellulose finish with vintage gloss adds a subtle shine and velvety smooth feel to this guitar, and ages beautifully over time. With a redesigned carve top, 17° headstock and 4.5° neck angle, the Custom Core H-150 is optimized for excellent playability. This guitar is fitted with our Heritage Custom 225 Classic humbuckers. Designed and wound in-house, these vintage-inspired pickups are tuned for the Heritage Custom Core H-150 and excel in both clean and overdriven tones. Other notable features include a '50s C-shaped neck profile and a locking bridge with aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The headstock has a holly veneer and carries the 'Heritage' logo with a Twin Arrow inlay.
The Heritage Custom Core H-150 Plain Top includes a newly-designed hardshell case, with a certificate of authenticity and case candies included.
