Heritage Guitars Standard H-137 TV Yellow #AI20209
Superb quality and great spec guitars from the original Kalamazoo Factory!
The H-137 solid body guitar is for players who want a simple guitar that screams good tone. This model has a solid one-piece genuine mahogany body construction that gives this guitar a desired warmth in tone. Combined with the throaty growl of the Lollar P-90s, this model has a unique place in any situation, whether you’re playing live or in the studio. It is also great for players looking to play rock, country, blues or punk and not compete with other single-coil or humbucking guitars in the mix.
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.
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.
Jim Deurloo, Marv Lamb, and JP Moats (the founders of Heritage) had a combined total of 84 years of guitar-building experience when the company began. In time, Bill Paige and Mike Korpak joined as co-owners. Today, Jim, Marv, and Bill are still active in the daily business and their wealth of knowledge continues to live through our next generation of luthiers.
We introduced our first Heritage guitar, the H-140 solid body single cutaway electric guitar, at the 1985 NAMM show in New Orleans. Over the years, we have built a small array of various instruments. We now focus exclusively on making the world’s greatest hollow, semi-hollow, and solid body electric guitars.

WORLD GUITARS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE GUITAR STORE!
We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.
The guitar arrived today WOW!! It's fantastic and has exceeded my expectations in all respects. The build quality and finish are outstanding as is the feel and the sound. I only had an hour to play with it but I can't wait to get it plugged in again. Please pass on my thanks to Patrick Eggle who I hope to see at the London Acoustic guitar show again this year when I can thank him in person. Thanks also to you and the team at World Guitars, you really showed a personal interest in my order from start to finish including the delivery which went totally to plan. I would certainly recommend you to my friends. A cut above other major guitar stores I have visited and used.
