Heritage Guitar Inc. announce the expansion of the Custom Core H-150 line with the Plain Top series. Revered for its elegance, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 Plain Top blends tradition and simplicity to deliver a refined look with timeless tone.
Crafted at the 225 Parsons Street factory in Kalamazoo, featuring the finest plain maple top and lightweight genuine mahogany back. A nitrocellulose finish with vintage gloss adds a subtle shine and velvety smooth feel to this guitar, that 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.
Fitted with the Heritage Custom 225 Classic humbuckers that are designed and wound in-house, the 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.
Available in three colors, Dirty Lemon Burst, Tobacco Sunburst, and Dark Cherry Sunburst. Also, with the option of an Artisan Aged finish. It comes in a newly-designed hardshell case, with a certificate of authenticity and case candies included.
