Kalamazoo, Michigan (June 23, 2016) — Heritage Guitar is proud to introduce its newest limited edition series, the H-157W.

Music Mart has been patiently waiting 6 months for this baby to arrive!  Manufactured at the historic factory at 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the 157W is a refreshed take on a classic design. Like the iconic Heritage H-157 model, the 157W features a solid mahogany body and neck, with multiple white and black binding around the body top and back, and single white binding on the neck and headstock. The limited edition, however, is also crafted using specifically chosen, ultra premium Western Maple. The solid premium mahogany body is hand-selected, and the result is a beautiful, non-weight relieved guitar guaranteed to be less than 9.5 lbs.

The 157W also maintains a vintage Kalamazoo design in regards to the electronics, being the first Heritage guitar packed with ThroBak electronics. ThroBak KZ-115 PAF humbuckers are wound on the same machine that was used at the Parsons Street factory back in 1957, and provide unmatched tonal reproduction of early PAF pickup dynamics and the low end depth of the originals.
