Don Carr and Mitch Gallagher welcome Heritage Guitar Inc. to Sweetwater's ever-growing family of guitar manufacturers.
For 68 years, 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan was home to one of America's premier guitar manufacturers. In 1984, the company moved its operations. The next year, desiring to carry on the tradition of handcrafting electric guitars in Kalamazoo, three former senior employees with a combined 84 years of guitar-building experience founded Heritage Guitar Inc., buying space and much of the original equipment in the iconic factory. Since then, Heritage Guitar has established its own tradition of quality by handcrafting guitars with flawless playability, tone, and visual appeal.
