The Heritage H535 in Old Style Sunburst 

Semi Hollow Body With Hardshell Case

Brand New


This is the handmade quality Gibson used to have.  Handmade in the Gibson Factory - These will be true classic collectibles

The lush finish and gorgeous tone of this guitar sets it apart from its contemporaries. The truly handmade quality of this guitar will make it a classic that will only get better with age. The depth of tone is incredible and there is nothing in this price range or even twice the cost that can match these guitars.

This really is a beautiful guitar with subtle figuring to the top and back - It oozes class in a very understated way.

  A pair of Seymour Duncan 59s give you all of the quack, spank, grunt & shimmer that you could ever need.

It also features the TonePros locking bridge and tailpiece.


If you are not aware of Heritage Guitars read the brief history below and you will see what all of the fuss is about.


Heritage Guitar Inc. of 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan was incorporated in April 1985. In the companies 23 year history it has achieved the status of one of the premier guitar companies in the world today. It is one of the few new guitar line stocked by countless vintage shops throughout the world. This indicates it is thought of as the collectible guitar of tomorrow.

The idea to start 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). When this took place, some of the employees were asked to move to Nashville. However, since their families had spent many years in Kalamazoo, it made it difficult to uproot and move. Therefore 3 men, Jim Deurloo, Marvin Lamb, and JP Moats, decided to start a guitar manufacturing business. In 1985 when the company was incorporated, 2 other former Gibson Guitar Corporation employees, Bill Paige and Mike Korpak, joined as owners. Mike left the company in 1985.

The founders biggest resource is and was the group of craftsmen they could draw from to begin operations. The owners themselves each had in excess of 25 years of hands on experience in making guitars. To this day each of the owners is directly involved in the manufacturing of each instrument.

Heritage started operations in the oldest of five buildings formerly owned and operated by Gibson Guitar Corporation. That building was completed in 1917 and has been a centre for guitar manufacturing ever since. Much of the machinery that Heritage uses today was purchased from Gibson Guitar Corporation.


These guitars are the ‘real thing’ made by many of the same guys that built the classic Les Pauls and 335s of the 1950s & 60s, in the same building on many of the same machines.

The truth is that if you want a ‘proper’ 335 you either spend £13,000.00 on a vintage instrument or you can buy a new Heritage!
