Heartfield guitars were introduced in 1989 and were produced up to about 1993. Produced in the high profile Fujigen Gakki factory in Japan, they were made along side the high end Ibanez models being produced in the same space. Fender began the company with the goal of breaking into the Japanese market, which failed due to the weakening of the dollar and rising costs.

Made in the second month of the RR8's documented production, this Frost Red Heartfield electric is an early example of the company. It features an alder body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, 22 frets, and a fixed bridge with a string through body. The single active humbucker is powered by a 9 volt battery. There is one volume control and one tone control, and there are three buttons to control three different modes of tone. The first button taps the humbucker to be a single coil pickup, the second is a humbucker pickup setting, and the third is a surprisingly good sounding distortion setting. The distortion is similar to a cranked vintage Marshall and has three micro knobs in the cavity to control different parameters.
Cosmetically, this is a played guitar with minimal fret wear and a few bumps and scrapes.
