" The Heritage 1 is a replica of the guitar that literally started my love affair with Gordon Smith guitars over 2 decades ago..."
The story goes like this...
I had just opened up my shop. 22 years old! With 6 guitars on the wall paid for by an inheritance from lovely Grandfather.
Well... in comes in a chap who wants to buy one of my 6 guitars - but he wants to part exchange his guitar. This was my first ever experience of a "part x"!!!
In his hands was this solid looking guitar - a simple affair with one pickup. Ooohh brass nut - looks nice! Ahha coil tap - cool. Plugged it in and it sounded AMAZING! Gordon Smith? Never heard of them!
In those days the internet was merely a babe in nappies - to access it you would have to log on via DOS (remember?) then you could connect with a very slow modem but there was little to find online.
Research was done through magazines and word of mouth but I did manage to find information on this Gordon Smith brand and was gobsmacked to find it was made in a small workshop in Partington.
I loved the guitar SO much - and it seemed special to me being my first part x - I decided to give it to my father who has kept it to this day.
The guitar was called a Gypsy 1 and the Gordon Smith ream have faithfully recreated the specification of my dads actual guitar!
Thick 1 piece mahogany body
Vintage Tobacco Burst
One piece neck and headstock
1 coil tapped humbucker - wound of course on the same spindle that the original GS pickups were made from.
This really is a true modern classic sympathetic to the Heritage that is Gordon Smith
