    Heritage H-575 Hollowbody | Victory Gun & Guitar

    Happened to come across this listing looking for a fingerstyle acoustic guitar online. $1795. Doesn’t mention the year when it was made. And, listing mentions a minor crack on the back of the headstock that was professionally repaired.

    Not a bad price...they are definitely selling for more than they were when I bought mine.

    This actually looks just like mine, but mine is missing the pickguard.

    They're outstanding guitars.

    Do mean like a guitar body with a gun barrel rather than a neck?
    Comes in handy playing those shady places on the wrong side of the railroad tracks.

    Serial number starts with an "H", so it has been made in 1991

    Looks like a place where you could spend a lot of money if you're into both. And, get into a lot of trouble with the better half when you return with your purchases!

    Maybe the presence of the firearms makes the repair techs work faster and better. But not cheaper, if you believe in the old adage about faster, better, and cheaper!

    Notice how all of these $1800 Heritage 575's suddenly look like steals. I paid $1100 for a Sunburst 575 eons ago, so in reality I guess $1800 today is a good buy. But for a previous headstock repaired version? I'm not so certain.

    No one complains about this guys work right? Don’t like the way we fixed your guitar? We can solve the problem by making it target practice?.

    I agree about the headstock repair potentially being an issue from both a pricing and stability issue. Would definitely want further clarification and time to have it examined by my own repair tech before committing to the sale. And, being able to negotiate a lower price if it's something more than just cosmetic.
