1996 Heritage Eagle Classic

In the late 1800s, Orville Gibson arrived in Kalamazoo and began designing his own range of mandolins. Over time, his company grew and became known as one of the world’s premier musical instrument manufacturers. Some of the finest guitars were built at 225 Parsons Street from 1917 to 1984.

After Gibson's move to Nasville, several former employees wanted to continue the tradition of handcrafting beautiful, high quality electric guitars in Kalamazoo. During the spring of 1985, they purchased space at the iconic factory along with its original guitar-making equipment. And with that, Heritage Guitars was born.

If you are looking for an affordable "L" style jazz guitar, look no further. With a fresh setup with Thomastik-Infeld JS111 (.011 - .047) by our good friend Mark Burin, this 1996 Heritage Eagle Classic is a jazz players dream.  

With a spruce top and unbelievably figured maple back and sides, this guitar is feast for the eyes and ears. Includes it original hard shell case. Unbelievable instrument from the folks at Heritage guitar. You will not a couple of buffed out scratches on the lower bout, treble side, caused by the original owners Australian Shepard puppy. Bad dog!!!
