This guitar is spectacular. You know who kept making great guitars in Kalamazoo after G*bson moved? Heritage. Yeah baby. The history there is legendary and although the big name moved, the attention to detail never left.
This was a special order in 1996 to the custom shop at Heritage Guitars. This H-157 has some stunning one of kind features that you won't find on any other guitar.
The first and most obvious custom appointments are the paint, binding and the hardware.
The Custom White really pops with the black deluxe multi-binding. Offset by the Gold hardware and Bigsby, this baby is turning heads as soon as it's out of the case.
Maple top, provides the snap to this mahogany body. Gold Schaller bridge, Grover Imperial tuners and loaded with Duncan '59s, this guitar is a rock and roll machine with equal parts class and sass.
The custom inlay work is super rad and features a "bird and branch" on the headstock, split block inlays and "Pop" on the 12th.
That's the fun stuff...
Here's the nerdy stuff...
24 3/4 scale
Neck Depth at 1st - .785, 12th - .910
12" radius with a 1 11/16th nut width
This is closet kept with one owner. It looks like it could've been built last week. VERY lightly used. It has been inspected and setup and will ship stupid fast with level frets and the original hardshell case, ready to plug and play.
