If You Own A Fender It Is Recommended That
You Read This Completely
|Fender has always made great guitars. excepting maybe during
the mid 80's & 90's. Today they are made much better and we strongly
recommend them to people who don't have a lot of money to spend on
something totally custom.
One of the things that all mega corporations lack is their inability
to offer options, unlimited colors and special features.
However Ed Roman has taken up the challenge of hot rodding,
souping up and/or modding out the everyday ordinary fender guitar.
Page In Progress
Direct Couple Bolt System
This relatively easy to do mod
will really add stability to your neck joint and help with that all
important tone transference between the neck & the body. There
should be a marked increase in sustain also if this mod is done
This Option Is Std No Charge on all Ed Roman
Guitars where it is applicable.
These kits come complete with hardened steel bolts and brass
inserts. Once installed correctly the tone & sustain of your
guitar should increase noticeably.
Works really well on Fender Guitars, PRS Guitars or Tom Anderson, John
Suhr, Original Charvel's, Wolfgang's, Ernie's Balls etc etc
The 1500 G Neck Mod.
We have been doing this mod to
Fender's & PRS guitars for close to 20 years. This is where we
remove the finish from the neck and in some cases we will reshape it
to the customers liking. We do various things to the neck from
immersing it in hot oil to sanding & buffing the neck to a high
frictionless polish. (Click

Upgrading Your Stock Stamped Steel
Ok, let's face the facts the
Fender Tremolo has never been anything to write home about. It is a
very inexpensive piece of stamped soft metal that does nothing to
help you stay in tune. It probably costs less than $2.00 to make it
from scratch. There are at least a hundred companies who have built
Ed Roman has researched tremolos in depth for many years!! Naturally
we will install any system that you might want to use but we can
advise you on the pros & cons involved. The best ones we have seen
are the Floyd Rose German made original model and the Pearlcaster
cast unit. Upgrading your tremolo will help your guitar stay in
tune, and in a few cases not harm the tonality or adversely effect
the sustain of your guitar.
Upgrading your Tuners.
imported tuners simply don't work for a professional.
They are inadequate for the gigging working musicians. While these
are fine for the weekend warrior a full time pro requires something
much better. Ed Roman offers Schallers, Planet Waves, LSR's,
Grovers and the high end Gotoh's. We no longer recommend the Sperzel
tuners, We have found the company unresponsive to the many problems
we have had in the past 3 years. Anyone who bought the Sperzel
tuners from us in the past we will replace them free of charge if
they are experiencing problems.
We are proud to carry Seymour
Duncan, EMG, Bartolini, Tom Holmes, Jason Lollar, & Mosrite Pickups.
We can replace the stock pickups in your guitar to a much better
Hard Mounting Pickups.
Rarely if ever done
by other companies, This great feature adds more sustain & overtones
to your guitar. This feature increases sustain dramatically by
stabilizing the pickup tightly to the guitar (Direct coupling) The
fact that the tone is greatly enhanced is a great bonus.
Replacing The Nut
The Delrin nut is
an oil impregnated graphic compound that greatly reduces any string
sticking at the headstock.
The guitar holds tune better and
sounds better also.
We have offered this costly
option for almost 10 years, There are those that use this as a major
selling point on their guitars. Personally we prefer the polytrinite
or delrin saddles but we offer this due to popular demand.
All Access Neck
(The Original Reason For The
We are very proud of this
innovation. In fact this feature by itself leaves all the
competition out of the running. Granted there may be other
Fenderesque guitars out there that have similar quality to the
Pearlcaster/Scepter but nothing comes close
Ed Roman offers Plastic Conductive
Pots & USA made toggle switches.
The Pearlcaster family of guitars
Scepters & Majic Twanger's are the only company we have seen to
offer these ultra high quality Bournes made pots as an option.
Naturally we make these available on any guitar that you would like
us to install them in.
(Ed Roman has developed a new
Now available installed in
your guitar, the Ultratone Preamp from Ed
Roman features it's own separate tone control and a 5 position
Vari-switch. This Unit is another example of why the
Pearlcaster the World Finest traditional guitar in it's class.
