Ed Roman is a fantastically marvellous ****wit. He's considered a joke to anyone in the industry - that's why he's so bitter and spiteful towards every company even marginally larger than him, by the way - and shouldn't be listened to or bought from. The guitars he puts out are constructed well, but his original inventions are plagued with basic design flaws inspired by completely misguided theory (most of which is contrary to what other brands make simply for the sake of being contrary) and his copies of other manufacturer's products are a mixture of inferior to barely-equal at massively inflated prices.
He would tell you grass is purple if Gibson said it was green. He's completely barmy.

If you want a terrible-handling pointy guitar that you'll grow out of and trash by this time next year, do yourself a favour and just look up the offerings from BC Rich, Washburn, Jackson, Dean and the like. At least that way you won't be pissing away quite as much money. Even if you want a really top-quality pointy guitar and are willing to spend big bucks on it, go contact the ESP Custom Shop or local luthiers before you look twice at an Ed Roman creation.

Not anymore. He's dead.

He's probably telling Jesus how to build guitars.

Thats a pretty wicked guitar. I love the concept but I think the body shape could be improved a lot. Reminds me of the bc rich evil edge mockingbird.

You are looking at a minimum of $2200US.


Behave, I've shat more artistic creations than that eye sore.

Knock a zero off the price and I might consider it. Maybe another zero. And the twos.

LOL, thats good

You have to admit it does get a response, either people really hate it or they really like it(more hate), and probably nobody has even played it.

I think it says a lot about his legacy that I forgot he'd died, what, over a year ago now? And that people within the industry still have nothing nice to say about him and his company tones down any mention of him.

Avoid Roman and anything he touches or says like the plague.
