Heritage’s H575 “Custom” is the more deluxe version of Heritage’s very popular H575 hollowbody archtop. It’s important to note that H575’s are carved of SOLID woods and NOT pressed plywood, like a ES175. The top and back are SOLID curly Michigan Maple, rims are solid maple, neck is Honduran Mahogany. Some key features:
-REAL Nitrocellulose lacquer finish
-16 inch lower bout width, 2.75 inch rim depth, 24.75” scale length, 1 m11/16th nut width
-Medium C neck carve
-20 medium jumbo frets on a AAA Indian Rosewood fingerboard with 12” radius and “Hash Mark” Pearl inlays.
-Hollow body with Trapeze tailpiece. Tailpiece has a solid Ebony wooden insert- standard for this deluxe model.
-Gold covered HRW humbuckers. HRW’s are German made Schaller HB’s that were modified by Heritage’s Rendel Wall. They are highly regarded and sought after, as Ren no longer makes them. Kenny Burrell plays HRW’s, as do Henry Johnson, Mimi Fox and others.
-White bindings- bound neck & peghead
-Inlaid peghead logo with split diamond inlay
-Pickguard is solid curly Maple, hand bound a lacquered
-Floating compensated Rosewood bridge, for added warmth.
-Older type Harptone (Brooklyn) black Tolex hardshell case with logo- in excellent condition. Includes key & warranty card
Condition- There’s a surface crack in the pickguard that’s been filled & sealed. Does not go deep nor through the wood. The frets are in excellent condition and she plays fine. The gold plating is also in excellent overall condition. There are some minor scratches & nicks here & there but nothing prominent. Looks like a nearly new Guitar & it’s 3 decades old. A strap button was added at the typical recommended place (see pics.)
So beautifully crafted in the historic Parsons Street shop in old Kalamazoo by the original Heritage guys.

Included is hand polishing the frets and a full setup. This amazing service is normally $239.00 Our PLEK customers tell us they’re VERY pleased with the results and you will be also.
