I say:

Basically a Les Paul Custom.

I love my Heritage guitars! – somehow the fact that they’re handmade in the original Gibson Plant by the people who made the legendary Les Pauls of the late 50’s just gives them “VIBE.”

This one arrived in what I thought was excellent condition, but when I removed the strings and started polishing a small horseshoe shaped area of the lacquer between the pickups disappeared and left bare wood!!

I’ve tinted and relacquered and if I say so myself – I’m pretty pleased with the job!

All original electrics, case etc, all in excellent condition, great wood, great sound love it!
