Heritage Custom Shop Core Collection H-150 Dirty Lemon Burst
This guitar takes you back to the heyday of the singlecut models. What a sound!
The guitars from Heritage's Custom Shop represent the very best that the brand has to offer. Led by Edwin Wilson - former builder at the Gibson Custom Shop - Heritage translates an immense wealth of knowledge and experience into world-class guitars.
So also with this copy, and with what result! Let's start with the Dirty Lemon Burst finish. This glowing top immediately catches the eye, all the more thanks to the amazing drawing in the curly maple. This immediately shows that we are dealing with carefully selected wood. This is further proven by the weight, because this Heritage weighs a very friendly 3.8 kg! With its '50s C profile, the neck nestles effortlessly in your hand and, thanks to the nitro finish, really feels like a guitar from the fifties!
In terms of sound, this Heritage also hits the nail on the head. The 225 Classic Humbuckers designed by Edwin Wilson are completely tailored to this guitar and you can hear it! Clean you have more than enough clarity and dynamics, while the guitar with overdrive - a little or a little much - starts to sing effortlessly. And of course the pickups are not alone, because the entire construction contributes to the tone, bite and sustain of this instrument. For example, there is the aforementioned lightweight mahogany body and curly maple top: the iconic combination of creamy and sparkling. The Tune-O-Matic bridge also ensures optimum clarity. We say: put this H150 in its included hard case, and on to your next gig!
