Something different, Heritage Archtop Guitar

Posted By tom kitchen, Monday, November 18, 2013

Handbuilt in the old Kalamazoo Gibson plant, the Eagle is the workhorse of the Heritage guitars. This is a classic archtop with X bracing. This guitar comes with its original, highly sought after Rendal Wall pickup in the neck position, the guitar combines elegant simplicity with handsome flamed mahogany throughout.

The guitar has a clear, balanced and focused voice, with the warmth and depth you'd expect from an entirely solid wood mahogany guitar. The action is smooth and low over a gentle D profile neck with excellent original fretwork. The guitar is in excellent condition! No cracks, pick marks, buckle rash, etc. 

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference.
