The Heritage Story
In the late 1800s, Orville Gibson arrived in Kalamazoo and began designing his own range of mandolins. Over time, his company grew and became known as one of the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturers. Some of the finest guitars were built at 225 Parsons Street from 1917 to 1984.
Carrying On The Tradition
Several former employees wanted to continue the tradition of handcrafting beautiful, high quality electric guitars in Kalamazoo. During the spring of 1985, they purchased space at the iconic factory along with its original guitar-making equipment. And with that, Heritage Guitars was born.
This fully hollow, double cutaway is the lightest guitar in our lineup. Constructed using the same laminate maple rim set as our H-535 model, the open construction and lack of a full center block, allows this guitar to breathe naturally. The addition of a set of Lollar P-90s, provides warm and growling tones that many players seeking a vintage tone desire.
The H-530 is for those looking for a thinline hollow body with versatility to play both jazz and rock.
