Custom build Heritage Millennium Ultra Pro in outstanding condition. This is the rare model without F-holes that tightens up the sound and gives it a great look.

This is a semi-solid carved maple curly top. See diagram of the build; somewhere in between a traditional semi-hollow body and solid body. This gives it some subtle open tone and keeps it at a comfortable 8lb or so.

One piece mahogany neck with ebony fretboard and mother of pearl blocks. It's a stunner and extremely versatile guitar; you can get incredible sounds across the board.

Upgraded with 2 Seymour Duncan Antiquity Gold humbucker pickups.

Multi-binding around the back and front of the body and neck.

Original Heritage hard case, strap, certs, etc. included. Built at the former Gibson factory in Kalamazoo.

That's a beauty for sure!

Do you have a link to the "See diagram of the build;" and can you tell me about the neck thickness/deminsions?

Thanks,

I don't have a link for a diagram of the build. I can tell you that it is semi hollow with no F holes. That's about all I know. I'd but the neck profile between a 50's and a 60's profile leaning more toward the 60's.

What a beautiful guitar, best of luck! I would love to try one of these. I love my H-157 but man does it get heavy!

Thanks for that info. I get along best with a 60's profile so that's good to hear.

According to my bathroom scale, the weight of the guitar is 8.0 pounds.
