When it comes to semi-hollowbody electric guitars, the Heritage H-555 is without equal. Flamed maple top, back, and sides, ebony fretboard, lovingly inlaid fingerboard, gold hardware, and great tone are just the beginning. What really sets this guitar apart from the rest is the craftsmanship. Every guitar from The Heritage is crafted by guitar building masters. The moment you pick up an H-555, you can tell it's something special.

Born from the ashes of Gibson's famous Kalamazoo, Michigan factory, the guitar builders at The Heritage are the same builders who turned Gibson into a household name. These craftsmen kept the Kalamazoo guitar building tradition alive. Today, Heritage guitars are some of the finest guitars on the planet.

More about The Heritage

Heritage Guitar Inc. of 225 Parsons Street Kalamazoo, Michigan was incorporated on April, 1, 1985. In that time, Heritage Guitars have achieved the status of one of the premier guitar companies in the world. The idea to start Heritage Guitars began when the Gibson Guitar Co. closed it's Kalamazoo,Michigan factory in September of 1984 and moved it's plant to Nashville, Tennessee. When this occurred, Gibson asked some of it's employees to move to Nashville. However, since most of them and their families spent so much time in Kalamazoo, it made the prospect of uprooting very difficult for most.
 
Three men, Jim Deurloo, Marvin Lamb, and JP Moats decided to start a manufacturing facility of their own. Heritage started operations in the oldest of the five buildings formerly owned by Gibson.
The building was built in 1917 and has been the center for guitar manufacturing ever since. The first Heritage guitar introduced was the H-140 solid body single cutaway electric guitar. The guitar debuted at the NAMM show in June of 1985. Since that time, Heritage has added many instruments to their lineup and has continued to offer superior craftsmanship ever since.
