  • Heritage Factory Tour

    Awesome. My grandpa and I were guided by none other than Ren Wall. I suppose he does all of the tours, but it was an unexpected surprise; plus, the man shares some killer stories along the way.

          That's really cool. I love my H-535 and can't wait to be able to buy another Heritage.

            There is a certain mojo that can only be made in old buildings like that.

                  Cool pics! I meant to go there when I was in Kalamazoo visiting my father-in-law a couple of years ago, but ran out of time. Next time I make it to MI, I'm definitely going to check out the factory.

                    I love Heritage guitasr, wish I could afford one right now. However, I think their headstock is terrible looking.

                      Very cool. I love my Prospect and my H-170. I'd like to visit the factory some day.

                        Not to be negative, but... Aren't these the same employees that were part of Gibson during the much maligned Norlin era?

                          And some were also there during the "golden years" as well. I don't think you can draw much from it. Guitars are both a function of craftsmanship and specification. If Norlin decides to make a guitar with a pancake body instead of a solid piece of Honduran mahogany, that's not the craftsmans fault.

                          For me, the Heritage history is cool, but ultimately, who cares? That was 40 or 50 years ago. They build nice guitars now. That's all that matters.
