  • Elliot Easton's Mosrite Guitars

    Both made in the Ed Roman Custom Shop, where Dana Mosley wound pickups for these and also worked on the Quicksilver line.

    Cool video for Mosrite fans like myself.

        Hard to take him seriously with a toupee like that.

            Yep, love that guy. Saw him with the Cars and when he was shlubbing with Creedence Revisited and he was fabulous in both.

            Cool guitar, wonder if they're still in production with Roman gone.

                Totally agree. He has such great ideas for leads. Can't tell you how many licks I've copped from him over the years. He doesn't think like a typical lead guitarist which might be because he's a leftie (something I've noticed over the years is how creative they are). All of his leads are exciting and fit whatever he's playing against perfectly IMO

                  Always wanted his guitars. Not a fan (not familiar with his work), but he's a lefty....

                  Hard to take the "Mosrite" label seriusly any more as really they're just a replica made by someone who bought the rights to use the name.... I've always wanted one of the Johnny Ramone sig models, based on the customised White Ventures II he played from 77 onwards. Don't think they ever did the official model as a lefty.... long hoped that Eastwood would eventually do their JR Elite model as a left hander.

                      I agree with your sentiment.

                      The difference is Mosrite is doing it right. I own an original and a reissue and they're both amazingly good guitars that deliver the Mosrite feel and tone. Dana Mosley also still does the pickups and is involved with the Mosrite (and Quicksilver) lines.

                      Fender is all about slapping their name on any piece of crap to make a buck. Mosrite is still making limited production high end guitars.

                        To answer your question they are still in production. Ed Roman Guitars is still the only distributor in the United States. USA Made Mosrites are built by & under the Direct Supervision of Dana Moseley (Semie's Daughter).

                        The regular models are made in Japan by Fillmore and they're very nice as well.

                        If you do not like Ed Roman Guitars Front Porch Music also sells them in America. Here is their page:

                          if you don't like Ed Roman, then you wouldn't buy one. the Ed Roman Guitars company, as the only US distributor, would still make money off of the sale from Front Porch Music, no?
