  1. Congratulations, you will be glad you purchased it. Let me know how you like it.
  2. I purchased the Xvive Audio U2 digital wireless guitar system for $154.90 from Sweetwater. So far it's worked flawlessly and I play two to three hours a day.
  3. The prices for wireless units vary greatly depending on the number of channels transmitting abilities.. My criteria was cost, and size. So far I really like what I bought. I know when I try them out in a live setting I will have a cable close by.
  4. After watching and reading numerous reviews I decided to purchase Xvive wireless guitar system. It arrived today along with a couple bags of candy from Sweetwater. The system works great. I plugged it in and started playing as I walked around the house to areas where I could not hear my guitar amp. My wife stayed in the music room and said the sound was as if I was plugged in and playing in front of the amp. I'm looking forward to trying it out the next time I play a gig.
  5. Welcome aboard, what a beautiful guitar, congratulations on your purchase and retirement.
  6. Fantastic buy, congratulations.
  7. Last month my always quite Fender Princeton Reverb tube amp developed a loud hiss. I took my amp in to get it repaired at a high end retail shop in Cleveland. The owner was out of town and one of the employees advised that they sell amps but no longer repair amps. He did advise me where I should go for repairs. The recommendation was Shockproof Sound Services. I met with the owner, Blackie Pagano when I dropped the amp off for repair. I got the amp back this week and it sounds fantastic. If you live in the greater Cleveland area and are in need an expert tube amp repair technician, Blackie is your man. Check out his credentials on his web site, Shockproofsound.com There are not a lot of tube amp repair shops in Cleveland. I just wanted to give my fellow Clevelanders a expert repair shop option.
  8. Tweed with a 12 inch speaker, sweet. Congratulations.
  9. Excellent, thanks for posting the video.
  10. Welcome to the Forum and congratulations on the purchase of a beautiful guitar.
  11. Great job on a great song. I love the sound of your guitar. Play until you can't. To me playing is pure joy and playing a gig now and then icing on the cake.
  12. You certainly have a knack of finding great guitars up for sale. A really nice find.
  13. I tried out the Fender Tone Master Twin yesterday. Very light amp, sounds good, but no where as good as a tube Twin Reverb amp. IMO at a cost of one thousand dollars it's not worth buying.
  14. Gitfiddler, have you tried out any of the Fender Tone Masters yet? For that matter, has anyone tried them out? I have not seen them in any music store yet.
  15. Lots and lots of great choices out there. I have been using A Fender Princeton, 15 watts and a Fender Reverb Deluxe, 22 watts. There is a more headroom in the Deluxe. Both sound great to my ear. I would figure out how much you want to spend, do your research on the internet. Then, if possible go out and try your top four or five choices to determine what sound you like best, and buy it, Happy hunting and let us know what you purchase.
  16. Welcome Rob and congratulations on your new H-530. I'm glad your going to post photos when that beauty gets to you. Most Forum members say without photos, it didn't happen. Nice to hear your able to jam with other musicians.
  17. Welcome. I do believe they were Golden 50's, at least that was what my first H-535 came with.
  18. Thanks kidsmoke. I have owned at least 30 guitars over the years. The wife told me if I die before her what is she going to do with all those guitars, not to mention my amps. So I have thinned out the guitar herd. Besides the Gibson ES-335, I have a couple of Gibson Les Pauls, a couple of Fender Telecasters, and two Epiphones, one of which was made at the Kalamazoo plant in 1965. After playing the H-535 and seeing how they are made, I decided that I really want one. I loved the sound of a semi hollow guitar as well as the body size. I was looking at a Collings, but I really don't believe they are worth twice the price or are twice the guitar that a Heritage is. I have been looking at Reverb.com, craigslist, e-bay and a few choice guitar stores for a pristine used one to no avail. I will be spending some time this winter in Florida and will probably buy my H-535 from Wolfe Guitars in Jupiter. I am amazed that there are no Heritage dealers in the greater Cleveland area. I will probably sell one of my Les Pauls, otherwise I might start collecting again. 90% of the time I play the ES-335. After comparing my ES-335 to the H-535's that I played at the factory, I believe the H-535 is a better built guitar with a much nicer finish.
  19. Thanks, I don't know if I order a new one or buy an already built one.I will be in Florida in January and am going to meet with the owner of Wolfe guitars see if he has a new one I like. If not, I will order one.
  20. I'm Kenny V from Cleveland, OH. I took the Heritage Guitar tour a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with the H-535. I don't own a Heritage at the moment but I have been looking for one. I was thinking of buying a H-535 with two Seymor Duncan Humbucker 59's. I have noticed a combination of the humbucker 59 in the neck position and a Seth Lover Humbucker in the bridge position on line. I play at lot of American song book music and jazz, but occasionally 60's rock. I'm looking for some feedback from H-535 owners about their guitars and choice of pickups. My current go to guitar is a Gibson ES335 with classic 57 pickups. I love the sound of this guitar and pickup combination. For the record, I have taken the Gibson factory tour in Memphis and the Heritage tour is far superior. I highly recommend going to Kalamazoo and go on a tour of the factory. Thanks
