Re: Heritage Guitars & Ed Roman

: : : I'm thinking of purchasing a Heritage 535 or 555 (Similar to a Gibson 335). There's a huge website by Ed Roman that sells them. Has anyone heard anything about him or Heritage? Sure appreciate the help.

: : First:
: : Herritage guitars are VERY nice. They're made by the old Gibson
: : people in the old factory and they're generally a higher quality
: : product than Gibson is now.
: : <P>
: : Ed Roman has an unreal website that will make you drool all over yourself.
: : However, if you look beyond the pics and READ any of it, his personality
: : comes through the text, it will become clear that he's a real "piece of work."
: : Though he does know his subject and does beautiful work.
: : I asked a music dealer friend of mine about him, and he said he had heard several
: : horror stories about working with the guy. He is aparently well-known in the industry,
: : not well-liked. Of course, this is second hand information.

: : So the answer is YES on Herritage, BE CAREFUL on Roman.
: : You're <I>probably</I> OK if you just order one of his stock guitars,
: : but you can also order then direct from Herritage and eliminate the middleman.
: : A good friend of mine ordered a Herratige that way and had no
: : trouble. You can also send it back with no hassles if you don't like it.
: : My gut tells me Roman would give you a harder time about that.
: Thanks David for what you've heard about Ed. My "gut" kind of feels the same way. anyone else have any insights or experience with Ed Roman?
