In the late 1800s, Orville Gibson arrived in Kalamazoo and began designing his own range of mandolins. Over time his company grew to become one of the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturers. Some of the world's finest guitars were built at 225 Parsons Street from 1917 to 1984. After the brand left town some of the former senior employees wanted to continue the tradition of handcrafting beautiful, high quality electric guitars in Kalamazoo. In the spring of 1985, they bought space at the iconic factory, much of the original guitar-making equipment, and the rest is history.

The Heritage Custom Core H-535 semi-hollow electric guitar is built in our factory at 225 Parsons Street, Kalamazoo, and features a laminated premium curly maple top and back. The guitar is finished in a vintage gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, that adds a subtle shine and ages beautifully over time.

Attention to detail is at the core of the H-535's construction. Its solid curly maple rim enhances resonance, ensuring exceptional sustain. The rosewood fretboard offers a comfortable playing experience, while the 12" radius and Jescar medium/jumbo frets enable effortless bending and precise intonation.

The 50s C-shaped neck profile ensures comfort during extended playing sessions, while the bone nut contributes to improved sustain and tonal clarity. Vintage-inspired block inlays add timeless sophistication. 

Equipped with our proprietary Heritage Custom Shop 225 Classic Humbuckers, the H-535 delivers a versatile range of tonal options. From warm and soulful blues to searing rock tones, these pickups capture the essence of the classic humbucker sound. Two volume and two tone controls, along with a three-way toggle switch, give you complete control over your sonic landscape.

Built with premium components, the H-535 ensures outstanding quality. CTS 500K potentiometers, Orange Drop .022uF capacitors, and a Switchcraft toggle switch guarantee smooth and reliable operation. The locking bridge and tailpiece enhance tuning stability and overall resonance.

Completing this remarkable instrument are the "Heritage" branded custom shop tuners, black top hat control knobs, and a black switch tip. The headstock features a new size with a Holly veneer, adorned with the iconic 'Heritage' logo and Twin Arrow inlay. Each H-535 comes with a custom shop hard case, for ultimate protection and storage.
