Mark Slaughter Roberts Roto Guitar

Guitar Owned by Mark Slaughter   

Guitar players,  I am very sorry to say are for the most part very much afraid to experiment with anything other than Gibson or Fender. There are exceptions of course but when I ask someone what kind of guitar they play I will invariably get an answer like "2 Stratocasters and an SG". To which I will reply to with something like "Gee that's original"

Industry people have said that the vast majority of guitar players are stodgy, old fashioned & brainwashed. I certainly hope not !!! 
When I got into this business 34 years ago I was hoping to deal with creative, innovative forward thinking people. Not to say that all new products are better, because that simply is not true. But there are some great products on the market that go unnoticed simply because of ignorance.

Magazines and other publications are supposed to educate people, They are supposed to enlighten people to new products and explain why the newer designs are better. In the guitar & bass business this simply does not happen.  Editors are more concerned with advertorial stories instead of editorial stories.  Magazines are not to be trusted because they ignore any innovative new young builders so they can promote their big advertising corporate clients.

I have a problem understanding how Gibson commands so much product loyalty, their product is only fair to decent , their prices are way too high, their attitude is for the most part unconscionable and they never seem to have anything that is new. Fender on the other hand is a good solid company with good products at good prices and a warranty department that will treat you with a modicum of respect (Unlike some others) They still haven't come out with much that is new for a long time though.

Mark Slaughter is one of those innovative people who is willing to experiment with new things,  I purchased a Heritage guitar from him about 5 years ago that  was equipped like  those supposedly new Gibson Robot guitars which BTW have been on the market for  12 years or more. Mark has had a fair share of odd guitars, he shares my attitude of not wanting to be like everyone else.

Today the corporate jerks that run our country want us all to be good little lemmings and march off into the sea together. They want us to all dress alike, eat fast food, work 6 days a week, shop at Wal-Mart & Guitar Center. They want us to pay $5.00 a gallon for gas and pay an unfair amount of taxes. To this I quote Arnold and say.  "Fuck You Ahhsssshole"

6 String Neck

An innovative yet strange looking guitar that will probably become a very valuable collector guitar someday.  It will take it's place among other eccentric guitars such as Gittler, Bond, Chrysalis, Mellobar, Bunker & Travis Bean.  Please call us if you are interested or you know anything about it !!!!
