    I got my goldtop H 140 custom today and i'm lovin it!

    the neck is super slim, the tone is in your face! i love the trap inlays too...the 140s usually had dots stock....and the belly cut is nice for my growing belly:) it must have been a custom order....the schaller pups really sound good in this one....the neck is really smooth, the bridge sounds really sweet distorted!

    That is effin' sweet! I have a buddy that swears by Heritage guitars, I think I need to see what all the fuss is about. Love the belly cut on it - I'm in that demographic myself. ;)

    That's a killer score. Heritage makes some great guitars. I have only played one H140 but it was a good one. I'm not going to make the Gibson/Heritage comparison because I think it's just too easy to fall into that argument and frankly, it's old.

    I recently got an awesome deal on an H535. It was a leftover at my buddy's shop and he gave it to me at basically what it cost him. Suffice it to say that I got a great guitar for very little money. I would have paid the sticker price but he didn't want it so I wasn't gonna force him to take my cash - LOL!!! My H535 is one of the best semi-hollow bodies I have ever played. The build quality is top shelf all the way and it sounds phenomenal.

    The reason I won't make the Gibson/Heritage comparison is because I have guitars by both builders and I love them because they are simply great guitars. My Les Pauls never fail to bring a smile to face as does my H535. If there was an ES335 and a Heritage H535 or a Les Paul and an H150 side by side in a store and I was looking to buy, I would very simply buy the guitar(s) that spoke to me regardless of the maker.

    I hope you have many years of tone and continue to dig your new buddy Brent. She's a beauty.

    Thanks fellas!

    i have spent some quality time w/ it in the past 24 hours and it is a wonderful player. My 157 and Gary moore have Duncans in them, but i think i will keep the Schallers in this 140...they are a good match.

    Sucker for a goldtop.

    Does Heritage make a "Deluxe" Les Paul?
