Ed Roman Enters into initial negotiations with Klein Guitars to produce the branded Klein Guitars

Klein Guitar

<<<<<< Newsflash >>>>>>

Ed Roman has purchased most of the spare parts & bodies from an ex employee of Klein Guitars. There are numerous guitars in semi built condition. Presumably these are guitars that were partially paid for by customers of Lorenzo German who disappeared back in 2006.

We have heard that numerous people lost their down payments when Lorenzo absconded. We do not have details and we do not wish to participate in any conversations regarding this subject.  These guitars will be sold at special large discounts to the rightful owners.

Contact Ed Roman by phone 702-875-4552    Please have the basic details available so that we may identify your guitar.

Ed Roman Is Currently The Only Source In The World for Original Klein Cases & hard parts.

Klein Guitar Copy
Unknown Builder

There are countless copies of Klein's work, Some of them are done well and some of them are just OK.  The one in the picture above seems to be fairly well built.  I disagree with the 4 bolt neck joint, I recommend one in the center and forward, creating a more stable connection between the neck and body.  Also a guitar like this would sound better with solid mounted matched pickups instead of a spring loaded hodge podge of different pickups.  This guitar probably sounds good. I just don't like the aesthetic of the mismatched pickups.

Koa Klein Copy

Yet another Steve Klein look alike with a Koa body.
The lower bout looks a little too sharp. Personally I like the softer edge on the real thing. 
I have no idea who built this one.  The builder also was too budget conscious to use good pickups or a quality neck.

The neck on this guitar appears to be a Spirit neck which is considered to be very inexpensive and not in keeping with Ned Steinberger's actual design.

I have made a number of Klein copies for people who could not afford the real McCoy and I can assure anyone that the quality & fit are every bit as good as the original.

Here at Ed Roman's we won't build it unless we can build it better than the original.

The Klein guitars are very very spendy, You will pay as much as 3 times as much for a Klein as an Ed Roman replica. If you decide to purchase an Original Klein please call me and I will give you some thoughts on which models to buy, what to pay and lately I usually have one in stock.  I know many Klein owners, so it is also possible that I could locate something for you.
Steve Klein sold his company off to a third party who I think is out of business, No one has heard much for 2 or 3 years. These guitars were also pretty good, but if you want an original Klein you have to go backwards a way. The same as PRS, Gibson, Steinberger etc...  The originals hold their value and the new ones are just general merchandise.
