    is the slogan for 97 WLAV FM....THE pemiere rock station in SW MI!

    Like their slogan the legend has continued at 225 Parsons st for decades, so this guitar is perfect mesh of the 2.

    Granted, its different...but its a rocker all at the same time.

    Its a 1988. Mahagony body and neck, Schaller pups, Kahler Spyder double locking trem, rosewood board.

    It has some battle scars and lots of nitro checking!!! Patina, if you will...LOL

    Very interesting piece for Heritage collectors, but definitely a low point in musical instrument design.

    No, this is cool. It's kind of like Bo Diddley's axe on shred juice. I dig it!

    that's what their actual logo looks like, so it's awesome in a way. Also probably a heck of a player. Though, personally I'd rather have one of the Hamer MILLER guitars.

    Ha! That's gnarly but I dig it the more I look at it somehow. Hey! I made it in before anyone mentioned the "wangcaster!" Oh wait...

    I like Heritage, but man... that's hideous! :)

    A wraparound would have let a lot more of the graphic show.

    I painted that guitar!

    Back then I was working out of my basement in K-zoo. They handed that over to me unassembled and already painted black. I painted the graphics on it, and then they clear coated and assembled it.

    I also painted hot rod flames on a LP Junior they gave to the guy in the Georgia Satellites. Heritage would pay me in parts or services (they had a nice 4 foot wide sanding machine).

    Man, that sure brings back some memories!
