Revered for its elegance, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 Gold Top blends tradition with simplicity to deliver a refined look and timeless tone. Intricately aged by our master artisans, the Core H-150 Gold Top Artisan Aged embodies the look, feel and character of a well-loved vintage guitar paired with the playability of a modern instrument. This guitar is crafted in our factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, and features 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, 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, a locking bridge with aluminum stopbar tailpiece and the optional Vibramate with Bigsby B7. The headstock has a holly veneer and carries the 'Heritage' logo with a Twin Arrow inlay.
