Heritage H555 Thinline Maple Antique, 1989

Heritage H555 Thinline Maple Antique, 1989

Built from 1989 to about 2017 at the historic Parsons Street plant in Kalamazoo Michigan, the Heritage H555 evokes the higher end, groundbreaking thinline archtop electrics of the late 1950s. The Heritage Guitar Company was founded in 1985 by a number of former Gibson employees who chose not to relocate when Norlin, then Gibson’s parent company, moved operations to Nashville in 1984. They stayed behind, purchased the plant and began producing professional and higher grade instruments clearly influenced by their experiences.

Eastman AC122 Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar

Eastman AC122 Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar

Now discontinued in favor of a cutaway version with pickups, the Eastman AC122 is a versatile player’s guitar at an affordable price point.  Though we can’t resupply this particular model, we have a small number left in stock.  The Grand Auditorium style body shape works well for both fingerstyle and strumming. A curvy waist allows the guitar to sit closer to the body when seated and helps to reduce strumming arm fatigue. The warm and dynamic tone is created from the pairing of the solid Sitka spruce top and solid Sapele sides and back.

Eastman PCH3 GACE Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar

Eastman PCH3 GACE Grand Auditorium Steel String Guitar

The grand auditorium body used on the Eastman PCH3 GACE is comfortable and versatile, and takes cues from another very popular brand;  until recently, many guitars were based on classic Martin and Gibson designs.   It performs well for both fingerstyle and strumming and the solid Sitka spruce top has good dynamics and clarity.

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

❌SOLD❌ Fender Stratocaster Trans Red Maple Neck, 1979

Here’s a Fender Stratocaster Trans Red with Maple Neck, built during the CBS in Fullerton, California, in good clean condition and a fairly rare colour. If you count the Broadcaster/Telecaster and Esquire as one basic design and the revolutionary 1952 Precision Bass as another, the Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third complete Spanish style guitar design, though he also built a number of Hawaiian or Steel guitar models. Immediately successful, the Strat has stayed in production since its 1954 introduction.

❌SOLD❌ Collings DS1 12 Fret Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2011

❌SOLD❌  Collings DS1 12 Fret Slope Shoulder Dreadnought, 2011

The Collings DS1 12-fret slope shoulder dreadnought draws from the well of the earliest large body steel string guitars, the dreadnoughts built for the Ditson company by C F Martin from 1916 to 1930. Martin made over 500 guitars for Ditson, but the dreadnought was not popular at the time, and from 1916 to 1921, only 14 were dreadnoughts. That changed completely in the early 1930s, with banjo players migrating to guitars; these players needed both volume and more frets, so the Dreadnought design was revived and given a 14 fret neck.
