A Giant Leap Forward... "The Ergo"

LSR Guitars was started in 1995 by Ed Roman, The original design concept of these guitars was to offer a beautiful alternative to the Steinberger line of instruments.

At that time Steinberger had shut down all production & closed their doors.

The Ergo model was introduced in June 2008 and it has been extremely successful as a Guitar and an electric Bass.  Small enough to qualify as a travel guitar but good enough to play Madison Square Garden or any other major venue.

The first actual model The EB-1 was introduced in 1997. The EB-1 was originally known as the Edberger, It was specifically designed and built for an  extremely famous guitarist who shall remain nameless because of his contractual liabilities to a much larger guitar company.

LSR Guitars, was a guaranteed sure hit because of the association with this particular Rockstar. He played it openly at several large venue's & concerts. 

Sales were quite brisk because of it. Eventually, he must have been forced to play the endorsee guitars, he ceased using it publicly.  But these guitars have been a steady seller for 10 years.

Bolero Bass

There have been over 50 Body Styles  & shapes introduced on various LSR guitars & basses.

Ed Roman endeavored to show a number of them on this website.

Because the guitar design lends itself to almost any shape Ed has been asked to create these guitars in the likeness & signature colors of many well known companies.

For example Ed created a guitar that went to Rick Derringer that had a strong resemblance to a Rickenbacker 360V64. The fact that the guitar was built using the well known Fire-Glo color really made it appear very much like a headless Rickenbacker.

Rickenbacker is a company that vigorously protects all of it's patents and trademarks. They asked us to cease and desist from manufacturing any more of these guitars. The only other one was painted black and Rickenbacker never said anything about that one. The black one went to Leslie West who uses it quite a bit.

The reason for this short article is to explain to our potential customers that Ed Roman Guitars has the capability to make almost anything you want.


It is in our better interest to simply not post any of these offending shapes on our website.  As soon as we receive a cease & desist letter from any company we generally will stop production.

But if we simply don't post it, Then we never get any. cease and desist notices. 
Most companies really don't care what anyone copies or reproduces as long as it's a custom one of a kind. But they must respond legally to protect themselves from companies who would mass produce their intellectual property.

 "Ed Roman"

LSR went on to build and design a number of original designs and a number of one of a kind familiar shapes. Some of these familiar shapes happened simply because a customer might request a "Custom guitar with a body loosely resembling a Rickenbacker or a "Custom headless guitar shaped like a Kramer.  LSR not being much more than a fairly large custom shop was able to get away with doing things that a larger company would have been sued for. 

After about 600 guitars were built several competing companies had their attorneys send cease & desist letters requesting that LSR no longer offer these certain offending models.  Leslie West, & Buck Dharma are two of the original LSR artists. Leslie even wanted to produce the guitars under his own name which only lasted a short time due to LSR's limitations to be able to mass produce. To this day all LSR Guitars are hand made and there are almost 70 different designs available as of 2010.
It is relatively common for a player of Leslie's status to use a small company to build their guitars and then go to a company with mass production capabilities to manufacture the corporate signature models.
