As well as being a Larrivee fan I'm also a big fan of Heritage and G&L guitars. As a lefty player they really do look after their left handed customers.

I got this one used a few months back, it's a Heritage 150. The finish is vintage burst. The previous owner had the hardware changed to Tonepros bridge and tailpiece with Kluson tuners. The pickups are Duncan Pearly gates and it's also fitted with a Jimmy Page wiring harness from Jonesy Blues which gives, I think, sixteen different pickup tones / combinations. It operates by push/ push pots on all four pots, very snazzy and unobtrusive. It's a one piece mahogany body and weighs 8.2lbs, light for a guitar of this style.

Very  nice guitar

Luv Heritage Guitars, very under-rated in the Industry as not big with buyers who can't get past the name on the Headstock.

Very nice indeed!!!!

That's a beauty!
Been keeping my eye out for a Heritage H575 for quite a while now.
Toured their facility a few years ago.

Beautiful guitar! One of these days I'll get to try a Heritage. They really do look after us lefties, but sadly I've never been able to afford a Heritage. I've actually never even seen one in person.

Thanks guys, it's a real looker for sure. Heritage have a feel to them that is hard to describe, mojo is one word for it, and they have it in spades

To me, that is about as classy as they can get. An H150, traps, bound neck, bound headstock and tulip tuners!! It's what I had them do on my beloved Prospect. Like the mineral streaks in that one, too. Must have missed it on the HoC.
