    Nobody really knows what happened. The forum just shut down this morning.

    PK, Welcome to the forum. I too am very disappointed my daily addiction at the HOC has come to an end. Hope to see all our friends here. Peace, Stephen

    I just hope nothing affects the production of the guitars themselves.

    Well that's too bad. I'm holding out hope that it is somehow temporary.
    While I didn't post a whole lot, I did read posts regularly.
    My name over there was Sticky, by the way.

    I too have a Heritage guitar. Love it. Play it a lot.
    Does anyone have a site where I can ID it via the serial number?
    Body thickness is only 1-1/2". It's thin.

    Beautiful grain on the H-140 OlRedNeckHippy!
    The serial # will only tell you the yr of manufacture. If you pull the control cavity plate, the model (H-140) and finish will be written in there, along with a signature.
    Finish looks like Almond Burst.

    OK! Thanks Monkey Man.
    It is now confirmed, it's an H140CM, color is ASB (antique sun burst).
    The original owner thought it was a 150, but after some research, I realized the 150's all have trapezoid inlays, not Dots like mine.
    And, according to this:
    http://www.heritageguitar.com/heritagedate.html
    it is a 1992.
    Awesome!
    It was my drummer's dad's.

    Awesome! Bet it sounds and plays killer! Never met a Heritage that didn't.
    I have two, and they are both fantastic.
    Enjoy!

    Nice 140.

    Pickups plus bridge and tailpiece are Schaller, and the finish looks like it may be antique burst ( ASB ).

    Heritage owners club?

    It appears that these guitars survive with pretty much no pr at all. I love mine! It's a 1989 535 with the first variphase switching format. Funnily enough, the pics I have of it are ones I found of it from a Reverb.com auction that ended a few days before I actually bought it from Dave's Guitar Shop. Anyway, any other Heritage lovers here?

    I know, Heritage is a tough search. Keeps giving me Les Paul 'Heritage' model.

    5ED3DD52-D8BB-42BC-A767-0235587DAC87.jpeg Here’s my H576. My brother bought this in the late 90s. I told him for years if he ever sold it to give me first dibs. He called me a few years ago and offered to sell it to me dirt cheap. I wanted to give him a fair price so I called the guys at Wildwood and asked what they would give me in trade for the guitar after telling them the story. They were very honest and that’s what I paid my brother. He shipped it to me and it’s was filthy, rusty strings etc. I cleaned it up and set it up and Its an incredible guitar. Seth Lover humbuckers signed by Seth himself. It is a keeper!
