  1. Although I don't own a H535, but a while back (quite a while) I played some that really floated my boat so to say. Only problem was that I wasn't in a financial position to buy one, I just started gigging fulltime and I was just trying to stay afloat:) I find semi-hollows of all brands to be hit or miss so I would rather not buy online, and there aren't any Heritage dealers in my area anymore so that makes it tough to try one out. That said, if I run into one that I like I would probably jump. I don't even own a ES335 and most people know that I am a Gibson fan. Fact is I don't own any semi-hollow guitars. I should sell one of my H150s and buy a H535.
  2. Good sounding amp. I love that he was demoing blues licks with filtertrons which I’m highly familiar with.
  3. No I’ve got quite a few small amps
  4. Looks like some Rockabilly cat had it custom painted/pinstriped, but lord, the fretboard too???
  5. I like everything I'm hearing in this video, but the crunch rhythm tone in the beginning with the gold guitar is really killing. This may be one of the best amp deals I've seen in a long time! https://www.harmony.co/pages/8418
  6. I use Oasis Humidifiers in the soundhole of my stage acoustic guitars, and they are very effective (I live in one of the lowest humidity areas in the country). They make a version you can just put in your case. https://www.amazon.com/Oasis-OH-6-Case-Humidifier/dp/B0010XSZ3A/ref=asc_df_B0010XSZ3A/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312195717264&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14663500602682342258&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1026969&hvtargid=pla-435687578365&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=61623488545&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=312195717264&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=14663500602682342258&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1026969&hvtargid=pla-435687578365 One of my cases, an Ameritage, has a built in humidification system which you can buy separately. It holds two Herco humidifiers, and I think you could put that in your H575 case. https://www.ameritage.com/store/product/accessories/Retrofit_Humidity_Control_SystemTwo_Compartments.html
  7. Like you, I paid next to nothing for my first two heritages H150s used and that's what attracted me to the brand. Both guitars were under $1400. That's why I didn't mind replacing the things I didn't like, as in the Nashville bridge and heavy tailpiece, along with fixing the flaws they came with such as badly cut nut and sloppy fretwork. But the last Heritage I bought (and still have), I paid $2100 and all those screwups pissed me off a bit. The label on the inside listed the wrong pickups (the pickups were Pearly Gates, the label said Seth Lovers), the nut was cut bad, fretwork needed, no adjustment wrench (which Tonepros says you should use), with the bridge. That's why I applaud the new guard as it seems they are paying attention to making sure the guitars go out right. And they are not selling them for much more than I paid for mine. I bought mine from Jay Wolfe and he discounted it for a cash deal so I'm sure you could get one for cheaper than he lists online with a little haggle.
  8. For some reason my old photo links were bad, but here's my two H150s with my Gibson Historic RO. My darker H150 has a Faber bridge and tail on it now and a pickguard...
  9. You have to evolve, and seems like the new blood at Heritage is pushing them in the right direction, which I feel is consistent quality. Just one look at the photos of the much cleaner shop impressed me quite a bit! If people support the new guard who knows what they will be able to do. And y our last custom build looked GREAT!
  10. Smooth top end, less aggressive attack. The feel is great when they are polished right. My favorite for feel is Thomastik flats as they are silky smooth, but for the gauge that I like I went with Pyramids. The reason the gauge is important to me is that I switch between my Gretsch and an acoustic on stage and drastic differences in gauge make it hard for me to fingerpick where I count on the string to provide a certain amount of resistance. These strings are expensive but they seem to last forever.
