This is a “custom” Heritage Super Eagle from the historic Parsons Street shop in old Kalamazoo, made by the original Heritage folks just over 2 decades back. It is a gloriously beautiful instrument with a wonderful traditional Super 400 Jazz tone, rich with warmth and fullness. Just a delight to strum and play. Here are the specs:
18 inch lower bout width *3” rim depth * 25.5” scale length * 1 11/16th nut width * 20 medium jumbo frets, 12” fingerboard radius * 17 degree peghead angle * fancy 5 piece flamed Maple neck, Ebony fingerboard w/ traditional split block inlays * Medium D shaped standard neck size & shape- very familiar * Deluxe binding & inlays, inlaid peghead * Gold hardware * Gold “H” pattern tailpiece * Gold Grover Rotomatic tuning keys * Custom Wolfe Guitars pickguard shape- hand bound and lacquered curly Maple * real Nitro lacquer finish, which has yellowed nicely to a true “honey blonde” * Mother of Pearl truss rod cover, not plastic * Premium woods package with Sitka Spruce carved arched top and Heritage “ultra” flamed maple back (really nice) * full contact inlaid Ebony bridge base with a Nashville style gold tune-o-matic bridge on top * Stinger detail at peghead back * factory hardshell case with key/ hang tag/warranty card and receipt for some setup work in 2014. The custom upcharge features include the premium woods (expensive when new), custom pickguard, Honey Blonde finish ($400 when new back then), bridge setup.
Condition- Overall really nice, with a minimum of dings, scratches, etc. Has the usual swirl marks in the finish from polishing/wiping. Has some buckle worm impressions on back- quite a bit- but not through the finish. Has some binding cracks on the neck binding but not much. Frets show some wear grooves but not much and she plays great. Plenty fret remaining. The gold plating shows some wear through & swirl marks. See the photos. A truly beautiful custom instrument.
