What We Think

This Heritage H550 is a real beauty!  The lightly flamed Maple is a classy aesthetic for this full size professional archtop guitar.

The 59 style pickups provide a wide array of tonal options and can handle some grit for those players who sometimes prefer a touch of drive in certain settings.  There is plenty of warmth and sustain and the neck is a pleasure to glide around on.

Sound Pure loves getting in mint condition pre-owned guitars! With all the choices of achtops out there, it always helps to find great deals on world-renound brands like Heritage, made right here in the USA.
