Starting in 1917, some of the greatest electric guitars of all time were built at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, Michigan – the former home of the Gibson guitar company. From Bursts and ES-335s to Firebirds and Explorers, 225 Parsons Street was the address at which they all were born, until Gibson finally shifted production to Nashville in 1984.
But that wasn’t the end of 225 Parsons Street’s guitar-building story. In 1985, former Gibson employees Jim Deurloo, Marv Lamb and JP Moats were among those who set up Heritage Guitars, and the company has been making instruments inspired by the building’s rich history ever since.
Here in 2019, to celebrate the arrival of the all-new and improved Guitar Magazine, we’ve partnered with Heritage Guitars so that one lucky reader will win an H-150 electric guitar worth £2,459.
The vintage-inspired single-cut features a carved figured-maple cap and a solid one-piece mahogany back, while Seymour Duncan 59 pickups provide sweetness and warmth. With fabulous tones and slick playability, the H-150 is everything you’d want from a classic single-cut.
