American Heirloom Pool Tables was basically hijacked from Gandy. Gandy was in Macon, Georgia, but AHP was located in McDonough, Georgia. There is none of the experience from the 50+ years of Gandy's existence in American Heirloom pool tables. To the best of my knowledge, American Heirloom pool tables are produced in a garage shop at a residence.
How do I know this?
I was there for Gandy's closure, and for American Heirloom's opening. I was a partner at AHP, but left when I became unhappy with company decisions.
I personally owned the trademark Gandy for a year after it's closure. I trained the person who is currently building AHP pool tables. I build the same tables in my cabinet shop in Forsyth, Georgia, but I only do work in a limited area (central and north georgia) I also possess many of the original patterns and template used to produce the original Gandy tables. With the proper specifications, any competent cabinetmaker should be able to build a nice table.
The person currently operating as AHP, in reality, does not have the knowledge of what effect changes in design will have on game play, which tends to explain why I have seen comments about overly tight pockets and sagging frames.
I will gladly answer any further questions out there on the subject.
