For nearly a full century, the factory at 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, MI has been a destination for guitarists, music enthusiasts, historians, and anyone proud of a great American story. For those who don't know, Kalamazoo, MI was the home of Gibson guitars for the better part of the 20th Century. Once Gibson closed the factory and moved south, Heritage took over and began making some of the best guitars in the business, in the same factory where the most iconic guitars in history were born. The Parsons Street factory is as important to guitar history as Les Paul himself.
Every Heritage guitar is lovingly crafted to uphold the standards of quality that are hard to find these days. Other companies cut corners, but not Heritage. Heritage uses the best parts, the best materials, and the best people, and it shows. The difference between Heritage and the other guys is that Heritage takes their time, and does it right. Hand made from the best parts and materials available, one at a time, by some of the best guitar builders in the business.
The H-535 is a premium semi-hollow electric made from the finest parts and materials available. With a laminated curly Maple top, sides, and back, a solid Mahogany neck, single cream "all the way around" binding on the body and neck, a polished Ebony pickguard, TonePro bridge, and Seymour Duncan Seth Lover humbuckers.
