Body size at lower bout: 16". Scale length: 24 3/4" Nut Width: 1 11/16" Rim depth: 1 1/2"

Materials: Highly figured tiger flame maple body and neck; solid ebony fingerboard; bound body and neck.

Hardware: All gold hardware, including Grover Rotomatic tuners: stop tailpiece and adjustable compensated Tuneomatic style bridge; PAF style humbucking pickups; bound maple pickguard; gold bell knobs.

Notes: Handbuilt in Kalamazoo by former Gibson artisans in the old Gibson plant, the Heritage H-555 is the firm's top-of-the line semi-hollow guitar. A tribute to the ultra-premium ES-355, as played by B.B. King, Keith Richards, and other legendary performers, this ornate model features a highly figured tiger flame maple body and neck, all gold hardware, and an inlaid ebony fingerboard. The stop tail design enhances sustain, and the solid maple body block offers superior feedback resistance at higher volume levels.

This outstanding example has been carefully maintained in 100% original condition, without pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear. Apart from a few incidental lacquer nicks, this handsome instrument shows few signs of play altogether. Smooth low action over an elegant D profile neck, and rich, traditionally voiced PAF style humbucking pickups make for a highly playable and notably versatile instrument.

A showpiece in a distinguished lineage of hard working guitars, and a best buy in a true US made premium instrument. One only: call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.011-.049). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" 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: Original deluxe black Heritage arched plush lined hardshell case.
