Guitar Gear Gems  · 


This week on Guitar Gear Gems, we look at the newly revamped Heritage Custom Shop Core Collection H-157. We also look at the the new Gator mini Pocketboard pedalboard, which will fit in a gigbag. Finally, Burls Art has just created a super heavy bronze guitar!

Heritage H-157

Heritage has just announced a refresh of their Custom Shop Core Collection H-157 models. They are available in either Dark Cherry Sunburst or Ebony nitrocellulose finishes. Both finishes look great and it will be hard to pick which to go for.

Lightweight Mahogany

The guitars have an ultra-light mahogany body and a selected curly maple top. The body is paired with a mahogany ‘50s C-profile neck and an ebony fretboard with 22 Jescar medium jumbo frets.

They have a bound neck and big block inlays, for a traditional aesthetic.


The Core Collection H-157 is powered by a pair of 225 Hot Classic humbuckers with a standard two volume, two tone and a three-way pickup seelctor switch control layout.

Heritage are based in the original Gibson Kalamazoo site and they are known for building high-end guitars. These new H-157 models have all the makings of classic single-cut models and will set you back $4499 each.


Gator’s Pocketboard, is a miniaturized pedalboard designed for the minimalist musician. This compact,metal board simplifies travel by fitting neatly inside most gig bag pockets, even with pedals attached.

Fly Rig

Despite its size, the Pocketboard holds up to six standard pedals or eight mini pedals, configurable in portrait or landscape. 

Built-in handles make it easy to grab and go, while the perforated surface (10.75″ x 10.25″) keeps cables organized with two hole sizes: larger for power cables and smaller for zip ties. Perfect for fly gigs, the Pocketboard allows you to downsize your rig and travel light.

MSRP – USD 49.99

Burls Art Bronze Guitar

Burls Art has just made a Bronze Guitar by melting down 50lbs of copper wire and turning it into a heavy metal instrument.

Adding Tin

The guitar was made by moulding the guitar parts using molten copper poured into the moulds. He adds around 10% of tin to the mix and this helps create a bronze guitar, making it harder than the two soft metals combined.

Heavy Metal

As ever the video diary of the guitar build is a great watch and it is fascinating to see Burls Art making guitars out of odd non-traditional materials. In the past he has made guitars using pencils, foam, Lego and a lot of epoxy resin!

This could be one of his heaviest guitars to date!
