Living so close to the old Heritage plant, i was really wanting to add a nice Heritage to my collection. I found the 1985 H 140 custom the other day and it is spectacular! It is in incredible condition for a 22 yr old guitar. I'm gonna take it to Heritage next week to see if i can get and history on the "JF" on the 12th. I pretty sure it is a custom, one off, because the H 140 usually had dot inlays and a rub on logo...not to mention the top on this one is spectacular!!! It has incredible tone for such a light weight guitar and the fret are really flat and short like on the old gibsons which makes for effoertless playing. This one was a good find!!!

Care to share a little more than that, or are you unable to?


brentrocks,

Beautiful guitar and a real nice find.

Enjoy!
I whish i knew what the "JF" stood for? The only clue i have is that there is/was a tech that works at Heritage named Jack French...it could have been his? i bought the guitar in TX though, why would it have been so far away if it was built for a local (MI) guy?? I talked to one of the owners at Heritage last week and he invited me to bring it in and see if he can dig up some history on it.

The guitar is a joy to play and sounds fantastic!!!

Thanks for the compliments guys!!! I will relay any info i get from Heritage...it is a big mystery!!!:)

Awesome score, friend! I don't doubt it's a fabulous player. I've got an older H-150CM and it's a tremendous instrument. Enjoy!

thanks dude, i bet you love your 150!!!...i actually prefer the 140s because of the lighter wieght...i have seen 150s well over 10 lbs....but the tone is killer too!!!! i'm surprised, the 140s actually pack a nice punch even w/ the thinner body.

Great guitar !! Good luck with it. I have a custom ordered '88 H140CM and it's been my main guitar for 20 years. I ordered it with pearl block inlay, MOP The Heritage logo, bound neck and headstock. The stock models had pearl dot inlay and decal logos with no neck or headstock binding.

Congrats! I was watching that one with interest. I have a 150, which is awesome. I'm strating to think about getting a 140. Anyone know if the neck is a little smaller? I know the body is..
