The Heritage Guitar Company Henry Johnson Signature model.
memories of Wes Montgomery's Movin' Wes and his gorgeous sunburst L-5. With the HJ you are miraculously transported back to that golden age of the world's greatest jazz guitars. Like the Heritage Kenny Burrell model (the Super KB), the HJ epitomizes the interaction of artist and artisan. The basic design suggests the next evolutionary step forward of the famed L-5 of the mid-sixties. It is a beautifully crafted and exquisitely appointed electric archtop. The 17-inch body features a solid carved spruce top and solid curly maple back and rims with two built-in humbucking pickups. Eye-catching cosmetic touches include gold-plated hardware, multiple binding on the head, neck and body, bound F-holes, and an ebony fingerboard with pearl block inlays and a pointed end-and that iconic Florentine cutaway, three-way pickup selector switch to the top of the guitar, the proprietary HRW humbuckers and the curly maple pickguard-a work of art in itself. Even with a cursory glance you know this is a serious jazz guitar.
