Here for sale we have a Heritage HFT445, a dreadnought acoustic guitar which was expertly crafted in Kalamazoo, U. The Heritage is a relatively recent brand founded by former workers at a Gibson factory. The guitars produced were designed and built using very similar techniques used when making Gibson model, with far smaller quantities being produced with an emphasis on quality over quantity. The HFT-445 is constructed using laminated mahogany for the back and sides and solid spruce for the top.
This combination gives a lovely rich tone, this guitar is set up with very light strings so at present gives a really nice bright sound, however this can be made fuller with a heavier set. The neck is made using mahogany and the fingerboard from rosewood.The neck has a fat C profile and is great for strummers and those who prefer a meatier neck, the low action makes this extremely playable.
