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 and 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 failure to be able to mass
produce. To this day all LSR Guitars are hand made and there are many body
designs available that are not pictured on the web. If we picture them we
will only get a cease and desist letter, so we decided not to picture them.
This model comes in several different variations, shorter or
longer upper horn
LSR Virtually cornered the Steinberger market, this was done
by purchasing as many bodies, necks, bridges and associated parts as possible.
During Steinbergers last remaining days, the company CEO Pat Cummings was
reduced to paying off debts to vendors with parts & guitars. He also paid
employees with product. Ed Roman contacted all these people and purchased all
of the remaining parts in existence. One Vendor had 26 Steinberger Guitars and
boxes and boxes of bridges & headpieces, Ed Roman even went as far as to buy
all the Hohner & Cort inventory from those respective companies also.
Ed recently contacted the company who made all the Steinberger Voodoo
electronics and is now able to supply parts to fix the old models. Also there
are numerous new electronic widgets available.
Gibson the owner of the name Steinberger objected heavily to
the use of the Suffix "Berger". So LSR changed the names on all the models The
Ed Berger became the EB-1. It should be noted though that Ed Roman had asked the
people at Gibson as far back as 1997 if they had any problems with him using the
suffix Berger. At that time they did not seem to care. I was only after an
extremely successful NAMM Show appearance and press releases being issued that

The Newer Designed One Has A Caligula Body
|This is the original LSR Guitar, This is the one the line
was conceived behind. Today 20 years later there are over 45 different body
shapes and climbing, The headless neck design lends itself extremely well to
almost any shape and design.

Another one of Leslie West's Guitars
The Jewel is without a doubt one of the most beautiful
guitars ever produced. It is also just as functional as any of the LSR other
headless style guitars. This one I made for myself personally in 1993.
The tone wood combination of African limba and quilted blister
maple plus the addition of the high output Duncan Black/Back TM pickups makes this the ultimate guitar soundwise. We now offer this guitar in
at least 50 different body styles.
