Revered for its elegance, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 Aged Gold Top blends tradition with simplicity to deliver a refined look and timeless tone. This guitar is crafted in The Historic factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, and features the finest plain Maple top and lightweight genuine Honduran Mahogany back. An aged toner Nitrocellulose lacquer finish with vintage gloss toner 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 medium '50s C-shaped neck profile, a locking bridge with aluminum stopbar tailpiece. The headstock has a holly veneer and carries the 'Heritage' logo with a Twin Arrow inlay.
