Description & Specs

Presenting the Heritage Custom Shop Core H-530 Hollow Body Dark Cherry Sunburst, meticulously handcrafted in our renowned factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo. Featuring a body meticulously constructed from premium laminated curly maple, both for the top and back, exuding a captivating Dark Cherry Sunburst finish. Impeccably finished in nitrocellulose lacquer with a vintage gloss, this guitar not only boasts a subtle luster but also matures gracefully over time.

At the heart of the Custom Shop Core H-530 Hollow Body Dark Cherry Sunburst lies the soulful Heritage Custom Shop 225 Classic Dogear P90 pickups, painstakingly designed and hand-wound in-house. These pickups deliver a distinctive blend of warmth, grit, and clarity, providing a dynamic tonal range. From ethereal cleans to ferocious distortion, the 225 Classic Dogear P90s offer a sonic palette that marries authentic vintage character with modern reliability.

The guitar's playability is second to none, with a 50s C-shaped mahogany neck adorned with white binding, an Indian rosewood fingerboard featuring elegant block inlays, and 22 medium/jumbo frets. The 24.75-inch scale length, bone nut, and a set neck joint ensure a seamless playing experience.

The instrument's aesthetics are equally enchanting, with a white headstock veneer showcasing the iconic Heritage logo and Twin Arrow inlay. The dark cherry sunburst body is accentuated by white body binding, complemented by the black plastic pickguard and top hat knobs.

For complete tonal command, the guitar boasts customizable dual volume and tone controls, three-way toggle switch, CTS 500K potentiometers, Orange Drop .022uF capacitors, Switchcraft toggle switch and input jack. The locking bridge and metal saddle material ensure precise intonation and sustained resonance, enhanced further by the trapeze tailpiece.

The Heritage Custom Shop Core H-530 Hollow Body Dark Cherry Sunburst arrives in a protective hardshell case, making it the ultimate choice for the discerning musician. With impeccable craftsmanship and unwavering commitment to tradition, this guitar embodies the essence of our heritage.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
