About the Heritage
The design brief for the Heritage Custom was to build a guitar with true vintage appeal with a modern day twist to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2017.
After an initial meeting with yourself in Feb 2016 we set about designing a guitar that was inspired by some of the most iconic vintage instruments. The most obvious conclusion when you play a good vintage set neck guitar is the lightweight resonant tone which when plugged in to a valve amp comes alive under your finger tips with warmth and natural sustain where less is definitley more when it comes down to playing.
Armed with our knowledge and experience the Heritage Custom had to be a versatile lightweight and resonant guitar inspired by these iconic instruments in looks, feel, playability and above all tone with plenty of Vintage style Custom options to suit a wide variety of styles and price points.
Starting with a tactile VOS nitro cellulose finish right through to a fully aged vintage flame top there's something for everyone!
To Launch the Heritage Custom program and to celebrate our 10th anniversary we will be opening up our order book in January 2017 on a first come first served basis. Each guitar will include a Vanquish memory stick with a selection of Hi Res pictures and a hand signed certificate of authenticity included in the case.

Choose your finish
We wanted to keep our finishes vintage inspired for the Heritage so we choose a selection of colours that we feel suit such inspiration and decided to offer a VOS style finish as standard.
Want your heritage to look a little more worn in though? Thats fine we also offer the Vanquish Aged Relic finish which includes crazed lacquer and playing wear.
If you'd rather a figured maple cap with a hand stained faded burst we can cater for that too.
Please note - Faded burst is only available on models with a maple cap and all colours are subject to slight coloration differences.
Choose your pickups
On the heritage model we offer a range of custom wound pickups from Monty's guitars in London. We work closely with Monty's to ensure we use what we think are some of the best sounding pickups on the planet. with a list of artists including Mark Knopfler, Biffy Clyro and The temperance movement among others choosing to use Monty's you can rest easy you're in good hands.
Fore more details on our pickups please hover over the pictures below.
Along side our world class pickups we also offer push/push tone controls for coil taps if required at no cost and the Vanquish treble bleed/tone circuit (+£75) which enables players to precisely dial in their own personal preferences over how the controls interact with their playing.
