A 1967 Gibson Heritage
CITES Article 10 Certificate # 555603/01
These are reputed to exist but many say only in fantasy.....not true. At it's introduction, the Heritage was the third most expensive model in the Gibson line-up, with only the J-200 and the Dove costing more. During the first three years, the Heritage was made of solid rosewood and in '68 it went to a laminated body. It was discontinued in 1982. John Sebastian used one during the last 60's and is pictured in Gibson's Fabulous Flattop Guitars holding his. In truly excellent condition, it has only a small and typical pickguard crack at the high e string. One of the top, square shouldered Gibsons of the pre-'69 buy out.
Original Grover Pat. Pend. tuners, pickguard and ebony bridge along with an ebony fingerboard and single tortoise binding highlight this guitar along with it's fat, thumpy sound. Rich deep sustain and beautiful tone attest to it's heritage. (no pun intended). The slick and smooth radius on the neck gives it ultimate playability and it's a dream to hear.
