Heritage Guitars - Meticulously Crafted Hand Built Guitars
(See Thumbnails below)
Heritage Guitar began when the Gibson Guitar Corporation closed its Kalamazoo, Michigan, factory in September of 1984
and moved all production to its other plant in Nashville, Tennessee (in operation since 1975). After deciding not to uproot their
families and move to Nashville, Jim Deurloo, Marvin Lamb, and JP Moats became "former employees" of Gibson and decided to start
their own guitar manufacturing business which was incorporated in 1985.
Heritage is a boutique manufacturer, making semi-hollow guitars, large jazz boxes and solid-body electrics which are becoming the
new guitar line handled by countless vintage guitar shops throughout the world. While maintaining their pledge to be the finest
"hand built" guitars in the industry, Heritage has made one concession to automated machinery, that being a Plek automated fret-dressing
machine which precisely grinds the frets to the proper crown and intonation.
Many great musicians like jazz guitarist Johnny Smith, metal musician Alex Skolnick, and country music legend Roy Clark have or currently
endorse Heritage guitars as their instrument of choice.
