Description

The kind of voice you get from a guitar like this Gibson? It's what baby Dreadnoughts all want to grow up to sound like one day. Folks, this Heritage Dreadnought from 1967 has certainly grown up and matured into a fearsome cannon. Built like a tank with projection to match, this Heritage has Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and a Sitka Spruce top to fire out chords and single notes with ferocity. One strum, and you're knocked off your feet--the sheer size of the voice! The Heritage Dreadnought has enormous scope, sustain for days, and an enveloping tone as dark and seductive as a moonless night. Played in for almost 50 years, she's perfectly opened up; this one's a real gem of a vintage Gibson. Solo arrangements are lush on this guitar, and when played in a group there's no need to worry about not being heard. We know of some amplifiers that don't have the air-pushing capabilities of this Heritage Dreadnought. If you're looking for an enormous voice with rich, sumptuous sustain, look no further: the eagle has landed.

I love a guitar that has a history to it, and you can tell just by looking that this one has had many occasions to develop its character. I look at this guitar and can't help but smile, thinking of the places it must have been. When I play it, I can see why it's been maintained all these years: this guitar is loud, strong, and full of energy. Fun times lie ahead for whoever picks up this baby!
 
This is an incredible strumming guitar, perfect for use in a band or in a studio where you need to mix in an acoustic. The tone is sparkling and clean and cuts through nicely.
