Michael Heiden began making instruments in Vancouver, British Columbia in the 1970's. He developed a reputation as a skilled repairer and restorer and he used his experience of working on fine vintage instruments to create his own line of guitars and mandolins. Heiden found most of his time was devoted to building mandolins as they became very popular. Recently he has taken a renewed interest in building guitars again and offers acoustic, archtop and Selmer-style Gypsy Jazz guitars.
