Heritage Guitars

Heritage Guitars is the successor to Gibson at its original Parsons Street facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and was formed by Gibson staff who didn’t want to move to Nashville.

Heritage focuses on modern versions of classic designs, primarily arched top electric models.

In operation since 1985, Heritage builds professional, premium and presentation grade instruments.   

Currently the company is owned by a group of local Kalamazoo investors.
