Frustrated as a player by the limitations of production guitars that just missed the mark, Jaden designed his own ideal guitar. Instead of making just one, Jaden set up his own mini factory complete with brand new tooling and CNC machinery to ensure perfect replication and precision every time. Working only with the finest raw materials, every guitar is made entirely by Jaden. Nothing is commissioned or sub-contracted to guitar factories abroad and all hardware is of highest quality. Jaden Rose Guitars produces no more than 200 guitars a year and every one is set up and checked by Jaden personally.
Heritage Guitar Inc. of 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan was incorporated on April 1, 1985. The company is going on 25 years old, it has achieved the status of one of the premier guitar companies in the world today. It is, in many instances, the new guitar line handled by countless vintage shops throughout the world. This indicates it is thought of as the collectible guitar of tomorrow.
The idea to start Heritage Guitar began when the Gibson Guitar Corporation closed its Kalamazoo, Michigan factory in September of 1984 and moved all production to its other plant in Nashville, Tennessee (in operation since 1975). When this took place, some of the employees were asked to move to Nashville. However, since their families had spent many years in Kalamazoo, it made it difficult to uproot and move. Therefore 3 men, Jim Deurloo, Marvin Lamb, and JP Moats, decided to start a guitar manufacturing business. In 1985 when the company was incorporated, 2 other former Gibson Guitar Corporation employees, Bill Paige and Mike Korpak, joined as owners. Mike left the company in 1985.

So how did I get here?…. I play blues…(and jazz, Americana, folk and loads of other stuff) and I play guitars that I’ve made or restored. I’m based in the UK, and got into importing, repairing and restoring old American guitars a few years back. I also started making instruments in that time-honoured way, from found materials…such as cigar boxes, tins and scraps of wood.
Gary Levinson began repairing Guitars in 1964. Utilizing his multiple university degrees in applied and natural sciences. Levinson approaches guitar building from an analytical standpoint. Inherent resonant frequencies of woods, innovative electronics and the tonal effect of hardware designs are important factors in his concept development. Equally as important is the role of “metaphysics” – or magic. Exhaustive research goes into those exclusive components that make a great guitar feel and sound right to a player.

The Abanico company was formed by a classical guitar teacher, who was constantly frustrated by the lack of choice when it came to purchasing high quality ‘intermediate’ level guitars for his students. There has always been a void between ‘starter’ guitars and the much more expensive luthier made concert instruments. Until now, a handful of Spanish, Japanese and Korean factories have had a strangle hold on the advanced student market but change is coming…….
