Hello, my name is Rob, and if UPS comes through than later today I will be the owner of a new H-530 which I have bought from CME at a great price. I'll post the details of the guitar under a NGD thread.
This will be my first Heritage. My other guitars currently are a Tele, a Jazzmaster, and a Martin HJ-38 Stefan Grossman. I play the electrics through a Victoria Ivy League and the usual pedals.
I'm an enthusiastic hobbyist. This summer, as a positive result of working at home during the Covid lockdown, I've started jamming with some other old (late 50s to early 80s, and I'm 61) guys weekly in one of my neighbor's front yard. For the past 10 or so years I've also been playing rhythm guitar in contra dance pickup bands in Philly and Princeton, NJ.
A couple of years ago I took some lessons from an instructor who had a 535; other than that all I know about Heritage is what I've read on the Internet.
I've been to the Martin factory twice -- perhaps someday I'll have a chance to go to Kalamazoo.
Best to all.
