4.8 / 5 from over 450+ Google Reviews Buy from the best in AUS.

We are selling this slightly cheaper (was $5400 now $4995) as it was bought and out of the shop for 4 weeks then returned. It really is a brand new guitar but may have some very slight signs of use but wasn't used a lot. Still has the Heritage sticker on the scratch plate and looks and smells new!

Heres our original description:

This is one extra special guitar with an extra special finish! The Pelham Blue and binding have all been given the antique finish and all yellowing off like an old 70's vintage Las Paul. It just looks so classy and legit!

Celebrated as an icon and period-correct classic, the Heritage Custom Core H-150 authentically captures the energy and excellence unique to electric guitars from the late ‘50s — lovingly remembered as the "Golden Era".

Crafted by highly-skilled artisans in the legendary 225 Parson Street factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan — where some of the world's most coveted vintage guitars were made — this exceptional instrument drives a beautiful legacy; built with time-honoured techniques, traditional equipment and premium-quality materials.

In Heritage's own words, a "Custom Shop guitar symbolises our spirit of excellence and continuous innovation. As a tool for making music and a prized work of art, our instruments carry remarkable artistry and allow pure creative expression to take centerstage for a true musical experience."

  • Heritage-Branded Tuners — High-quality, proprietary machine heads allows for precise pitching and ensure decades of reliable operation.
