Following the departure of Gibson from the Kalamazoo factory in Michigan, ex employees from the old Gibson factory continued to make guitars in the plant and named the brand “Heritage” . This is one of the H-170 models. In fact a ” Double Cutaway” type guitar quite akin the Epiphone Genesis that appears in the late 1970s. He finish is like a Bourbon Burst, making it quite a looker and sound wise, it is an excellent guitar too, with powerful hum-buckers factory fitted. Guitar has a lovely feel and balances well. Lives in its Heritage case.
