This custom made Ed Roman Guitar has only the original neck and headstock overlay
Even the fingerboard and frets are replaced  !!

This way the serial number stays intact

The price was still less than 1/3 of what Gibson would charge
even taking into account we had to throw away the original Les Paul that this guitar was built on.

Ed Roman Gibson Factoid

Did you know that Slash recorded "Appetite For Destruction" using replicated Custom Made Les Paul style guitars, built completely from scratch by several custom builders in Los Angeles.

Max Baranetta and Kris Derrig.

Are you aware that to this day, he still uses those guitars primarily on tour, and to record with.  Look at all the pictures of Slash. The story goes the ones with the pickguards are made by Gibson and all the other ones "The Replicas" Don't have pickguards.    (Musicians Have Been Duped For Years)
Check Out The Ghostbuilder Page For Details

Gibson released a guitar called "Appetite For Destruction" & people actually went out and bought it thinking it was the same guitar that Slash played.  It amazes me that people assume they will be able to sound like Slash because they bought a guitar that looks like his.
