> “Roger guitars were made by the German luthier Wenzel Rossmeisl,” Bachman explains. “His son’s name was Roger. This was Wenzel’s top-of-the-line instrument, and it’s absolutely a work of art. The lamination of the woods on the neck is just stunning, as is the carving of the top. Roger moved to the United States in the mid Fifties and worked at Rickenbacker. He then went to Fender in the late Sixties and designed the LTD, which, as you can see, also features that distinctive German carve on the top. They made 12 of these before Fender decided that they were too expensive and stopped production. Mine, which I got from J. Geils, is the 12th. Roger then designed the less-expensive Fender Montego, which also failed, as well as the Coronado.”more
