Notes: Handbuilt in Kalamazoo by former Gibson artisans in the old Gibson plant, the Heritage H-535 features a semi-hollow thinline body, classic gentle C neck profile, and fast 24 3/4" scale. This example has exceptional tiger flame maple in both top and back, as well as a bound figured maple pickguard. The design harks back to the classic Gibson ES-355 of the late 50's, and features the traditional handcraft of that era in every guitar.

The guitar is in fine original condition, with all gold hardware, medium jumbo frets, and a neck that plays effortlessly, with a fresh high precision setup. Free of pick, thumb, or fingerboard wear, the guitar has been well maintained, showing only a few scattered lacquer dings, and a finish imprint from an older guitar stand on the upper neck.

The traditional humbucking pickup and semi-hollow body design offer greater sustain and feedback resistance, and the thinline body is a joy to hold. A versatile instrument equally at home with jazz, rock or rhythm and blues, the H-535 is unquestionably the best value in a true US made guitar for the working pro. An exceptionally attractive example: one only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.011). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Deluxe black plush lined hardshell case.
