Heritage Guitar (formally Gibson) celebrates 100 years

The old geezers at the end of the video were the original founders of Heritage, who took over the plant after Gibson bailed years ago.
Heritage was recently sold to a local real estate developer (who I hate), but they are putting money into the place to modernize it. Many of the Heritage employees were getting to retirement age.
Since I live in the area, might be a pretty cool place to get a job...but I think I might have to take a pay cut especially if working in the shop.

yeah they hold their value really well. there's few on my local craigslist that are asking around $2000 which is not a bad price considering the quality. you could buy used and probably sell it for close to the same amount if taken care of.
new ones are pushing $5k, so they're definately for serious players.

Their plant is really not that big, so they're used to low volume to keep the quality high. But that drives the price up.
They've been in business since 85, so it works for them.
