GORDON SMITH GS1 HERITAGE – HANDMADE BY TRADITIONAL MEANS IN HIGHAM FERRERS, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UK.
With a thick, double cutaway solid body, made of richly grained Mahogany, this guitar has a satisfying weight and balance, and great resonance. The neck, just as the body, is hand carved for immediate comfort, and features a Classic profile. This should feel great for those looking for a medium profile, not thick, but not too slim and flat either. The Rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with dot markers, and the fretwork is simply superb, with a smooth polished feel when performing bends. A unique feature for Gordon Smith Guitars is they feature Hand Cut Brass Nut’s. The are not only tough, but offer great tonal benefits, increasing brightness and sustain.
SINGLE HUMBUCKER PICKUP WITH COIL TAP
The Gordon Smith GS1 Heritage features a Homewound Humbucker Pickup. Wound in-house they have been a feature of Gordon Smith guitars for decades, offering rich crunch, chiming cleans to soaring lead sounds, and these have also been improved with even better quality components and magnet materials. The GS1 Heritage features simple but effective electronics, with a single volume control which doubles as a Push Pull coil tap, and a tone control for taming the highs, and mellowing the tone. The GS1 Heritage is finished in classic Cherry stain, with gloss top and gloss black headstock. The back and sides of the guitar along with the neck are finished with a satin Cherry stain, for a slick and silky smooth playing feel. The wraparound bridge bar features adjustable screws, which makes tweaking the intonation easy.
This guitar also comes complete in a Gordon Smith Hard Case, with full certification.
