Up for sale is my gorgeous, AAA (AAAA?) flamed maple, American-made, 2019 Heritage H-530 with Lollar P90s and OHSC. You're unlikely to find an H-530 with a top as striking as this one and they are appreciating nicely. The maple flaming makes it the most beautiful guitar I've ever seen.I'll add for free a 12-ft Mogami Platinum cable ($125).

Its full-hollow body gives warmer, rounder tones than semi-hollow guitars or solid bodies. Works well with rock, blues, and jazz. The hollow body also means it's light - about six pounds. Lovely rosewood fretboard on 60s-style neck. Excellent Grover tuners.

Comes with shims to adjust pickup elevation. Higher makes the Lollar P90s much stronger.

The H-530 is a reworking of the Gibson ES-330 and Epiphone Casino and is probably better made than either one of them now. (The Beatles used Casinos with P90s in a lot of their recordings during the mid-60s and Lennon played one on the famous rooftop concert.) Also, the neck on the H-530 is longer than on the 330 or Casino for better access to lower frets.

Who's Heritage? The company was founded by former Gibson craftsmen who did not want to leave Michigan when Gibson moved to Tennessee. Heritage uses the same buildings and machinery that Gibson had used. If you read up you'll see that Heritages are excellent guitars and Gibsons...well, they aren't what they used to be. Gibson has had quality control troubles and went into bankruptcy a few years ago. Epiphone is more of a mid-price brand now than it was when the Beatles were using its Casinos.

PayPal is acceptable.
