Dates of manufacture: 

1990 to 1992

HERITAGE made the  GARY MOORE MODEL between 1989 and 1992. This guitar was based on the Heritage 150 model and production was limited to 150 instruments: the first 75 were finished in amber and the final 75 finished in almond sunburst. Moore was already player of Heritage guitars - with three H150s and a H140CM, when Terry Haselden (Heritage’s UK distributor) suggested a Moore signature model. Haselden designed the signature guitar in collaboration with Moore and supplied the signed certificates of authenticity. The first Moore signature model is pictured on the front of the "After The War" album - although you can only see the headstock with its "Gary Moore" engraved truss rod cover".

I use to own one in the 90's and it was one of the best guitars I ever had. Very comfortable to hold and easy to play with great sound! Unfortunately tragedy hit and I had to liquidate my inventory. Hopefully I will be able to get my hands on another one someday.
