Heritage Guitar of Michigan is one of the premier guitar companies in the world. In many instances, it is the first guitar line requested by premium vintage shops throughout the world. Founded in 1985, the Heritage Guitar Company began when the Gibson Guitar Corporation closed its Kalamazoo, Michigan factory in 1984 and moved all production to Nashville. Jim Deurloo, Marvin Lamb, and JP Moats, some of the best luthiers in from Gibson were asked to move to relocated but decided against uprooting their families. They began crafting fine guitars in a portion of the former Gibson Guitar Corporation. Much of the machinery that Heritage still uses today was purchased from Gibson Guitar Corporation, keeping alive the spirit and quality of the original Gibsons.
