Heritage Guitars has found many fans thanks to traditional craftsmanship and great value. Started by Ex-Gibson employees, Heritage Guitars are built in Kalamazoo, MI in the same factory and by many of the same hands that built Bursts, dot neck 335s, Korina Vs and reverse Firebirds. They even utilize some of Gibson’s original tooling and equipment! The H-575 is the Heritage version of the classic Gibson ES-175. The body is solid carved flame maple with solid maple rims. The wood is nicely flamed and makes for a gorgeous guitar. The 24.75 inch scale mahogany neck features a rosewood fingerboard with pearl dot inlays. Heritage’s own humbucking pickups dish out killer warm tone and PAF like growl. A fancy trapeze tailpiece, wooden bridge and Grover Rotomatic tuners keep it rock solid. The guitar is finished in Burnt Amber lacquer and is set off by gold hardware. A great guitar and an excellent alternative to a more expensive Gibson.

This Heritage plays and sounds great. The neck is straight, the action is low and the frets are good. The electronics sound excellent and everything works as it should. This is a nice used guitar. It only shows some normal play wear, light indents, and light pick and clearcoat scratches. The gold hardware shows some fading. Comes in original hardshell case.

Many players will tell you they prefer a Heritage over a Gibson for their build quality and attention to detail. Add in the fact that the Heritage guitars are generally more affordable and you have a real winner. A new Gibson ES-175 will set you back $3749 at the superstores. This Heritage is an incredible value in comparison. A great Made in the USA instrument.
