||A Christmas guitar is
usually, but not necessarily purchased around Christmas.
Usually for someone who has no real clue about guitars.
Ed Roman Gets
||I met Richard
Mermer at the Asia Show in Nashville three years back. I was
impressed with the look and feel of his guitars. I bought three
of his samples and entered into a verbal dealership agreement

||A close minded ESP geek who
had no idea what he was talking about.
Famous Pro Endorsers
||Are Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan,
Michael Jackson, Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Corporate Shills for
products they really don't use. Does Joe Namath
really use "Brut" Aftershave!!!
||OK. First of all there is
no such thing as a girls guitar!! A guitar is a guitar
is a guitar. It makes no difference in the basic

||Occasionally I will have
to purchase a guitar from another dealer, usually when it
arrives the strings will all be loose. I HATE THAT
McCarty PRS Guitars
||Personally Ed Roman is definitely not a fan of
the PRS McCarty, In fact I prefer to sell them off on Ebay!
||I will print anything that anyone send me as long as it's
relative and intelligently put together,

The main mission of my website is to
eventually cover every obscure and unique electric guitar brand that exists or
"Music Yo" is a company that appears to be a subsidiary of Gibson that was
formed to sell product direct to the public. They make a big deal about selling to you direct and cutting out the
middleman etc. etc.
||Interesting things about PRS Guitars
To the extremely few
pawnshop owners that are actually honest AND knowledgeable--
Ed Roman personally hereby apologizes in advance.
||Any production guitar, I don't care what brand,
will always suffer from uniformity. The prevailing design
engineer has to pre-suppose the end consumers decision
about what he or she wants in a guitar.

Spam Phone Calls
||This rant is about what
you can do to fight back when you get one of those
rotten no good slimy automatic phone dialer dirt-bags
calling you just as you are sitting down to dinner. Or worse
yet, you just hung up on someone you really wanted to talk
to only to get a spam call.... Great Ways To Fight Back.
A Really Stupid Story
||I am proud to say, I was involved in
the original design of this guitar,
and it's subsequent revisions. When I first designed this guitar, I never wanted it to be
sold under the BC Rich name.
||Don't ever get caught in a strange
city with only Travelers Checks. When try to buy gasoline,
it won't work too well. Even though your travelers check is
good or bad American Express will always pay the merchant.
The problem lies with the clerks.
It's An Old New York
Go down to 6th St in Greenwich Village, There are
about 10 high fashion ultra hip shoe stores there.
Come to find out that one guy
owns 3 different stores. So when I tried to price compare a pair of Leopard
Boots, I thought it was funny that they were all selling them for $495.00. I could not even BS the salesman because when I tried, He laughed and said...
Why don't you go back over there and buy them !!!
Ok Ok, what was I doing buying a pair of Leopard Skin
Boots, Hey it was the 80's and my hair was pretty long too. But the bottom
line is this is a deceptive trade practice. There is no law that says one guy
can't own 5 stores, with 5 different names and price fix between his own stores.
It's still deceptive and another reason Ed Roman does not like or support
chain stores of any kind.

Just in case you didn't believe
the part about the Leopard Skin Boots.
