    I've made a lot of pilots for people, especially music related ones. We've done a lot of them on spec for the hopes of recouping some money if the show is picked up.



    I never made a dime off of them.




    Maybe they are hard to make, and you just put so little effort into your pilots that they all failed. All along you are thinking "these are not hard to make, i think i will make more for people and screw there hopes and dreams up by making a ****************ty pilot and passing it off as not hard to do and great quality"

          Oh man... I never realized how many folks' dreams I've smashed... I must atone! Would that the one they call Roman were alive so that I might help him realize his dreams as being the first Leprechaun on TV

            That would



            If I had a guitar company I would put "made in Hell" on the headstock.

              Somehow, I'd prefer a guitar that said "made in hell" on the headstock over one that said "Ed Roman" on the headstock



              incidentally, didn't he specialize in fake copies of really expensive guitars? I'm pretty sure I saw a Lemmy Rickenbacker bass copy on his website a few years back...

                Did anyone else find it hilarious that his longest tenured employee had been with him for only like, 10 years?



                Also-total Ed Roman quote(about American-made guitars): "Most of them are imported and then passed off as American-made"




                Well, the trees weren't made in America, so he's kinda right

                    Woah, I had no idea they were trying to sell this show. I hate reality tv but I would have watched it just because it's based loosely on guitars.



                    And the quote from Lin "he's my dad and I don't like him, but I love his voice" cracked me up. But Lin was was truly heartbroken when Ed passed. Ed was a douche but we all know his name.

                      Seems staged. (I said ****************ing mahogany!)



                      But, I think a big time custom guitar shop show would be awesome. Like Orange County Choppers, except with guitars.

                        7:51 running time...



                        Yup, that's about right for a 1 hour reality show. By the time you put in commercials and replay half of the footage after every break I think that's actually more than most.

                          I would've watched for the trainwreck of a mouth he'll be spewing as "knowledge".

                            Apparently it's Ronny North(I looked him up).



                            From his myspace: "He has also managed to play and record with a few other big name players as well such as Rikki Rocket, Gary Hoey,Keri Kellie,Eric Singer, CC Deville". Additionally, he's endorsed by like, 200 guitar/rocker related products...my favorite of which is "Manglaze nail polish for men"



                            I'm no homophobe, but I personally think I'd refuse an endorsement by anything named "manglaze"...

                              "I build the best guitars in the world..."



                              I'm going to keep the name of the Luthier confidential, but the guy who works on my guitars is world-famous and is the "go to guy" for many top players across the globe. So when he tells me one of THE.WORST.NECKS.EVER! that he came across in his shop was a custom-built Strat neck from Ed Roman, I have to over the "I build the best guitars in the world..." quote.





                              Yeah yeah...two sides to every story. But who you gonna believe? A 60-year industry veteran with sought-after skills, or a Las Vegas shyster looking for the next "screw?"

                                I believe most of us would believe you Bill, his asshattery is well-documented.



                                We had a guy from the Rapture'd GW forums tell us a story involving suing Ed Roman about a custom order BC Rich Warlock. I wish that forum was still running, that story will make you guys absolutely looking like this:
