When I saw it on eBay, I was pretty much powerless to resist. :lol:Jesus, Chris, that thing is my dream LP! :holy:
Oh, I'm going to be selling some stuff... :lol:Damn, Chris, you're killing me, here. :lol:
I paid $1,600, which is pretty much top-dollar for a used Heritage H-150. This one is a limited edition and has that crazy top, so it commanded a little more. You can get a regular H-150 used for anywhere between $900-1300, depending on features. Heritage accepts custom orders, so there tends to be some variation in prices as a result. H-150s from the late '80s and early '90s usually had Schaller pickups and roller bridges, and those often go for under $1,000--easily the best deal to be had on Les Pauls, if you don't mind upgrading the pickups and hardware.Damn dude, that's gorgeous.
If you don't mind my asking, how much does something like that cost?
I don't understand it, either. People go nuts over those Edwards LP knockoffs, but those will run you $1,000 once you include shipping from Japan. Heritage has increased their prices on new guitars a fair bit in recent years, so that you can't get a new H-150 for under $2,000. The used market for them is still quite reasonable, though. And even $2,000 is a steal when compared to what Gibson will charge you for a Historic, which is the only way you can get a non-chambered 'real' LP from them anymore. You're talking at least $3,500-4,000.^ That's the crazy thing - you get a killer USA instrument for what a frickin' Ephiphone costs!
