    Default Ed Roman Dead?

    I'm not on facebook but others are reporting he died of a massive heart attack.
    Can someone verify?

    I just received some horrid news! One of my dearest Buddy's & a Great Builder of Guitars, my Pal Ed Roman dead Wednesday night after suffering another massive heart attack...just after spending 6 weeks in hospital!
    It makes me want to play that much better & study that much harder!
    SHEESH! I just talked to the shop today & no one said a thing!
    Ed Roman you WILL be missed Dear Freind! RIP!

    wouldn't hearing the news make you want to call the shop to verify? Since they're dearest buddies and all.

    At least there will be a rapid drop in guitar forgeries. And RacerX will need to look for a new ass to kick.

    He was nice to me so I can't say anything bad about him.

    Hopefully he finds the peace that he may or may not have had here on Earth.

    I didn't make a negative comment.
    I chuckled at VG's "Captain Obvious" style observation though.

    I agree with Twitch. I always enjoyed reading people's encounters with Roman.

    History proves otherwise

    Though I don't count ER as someone whos demise would need to be noted in history or even rejoiced for that matter

    He was nice to a lot of people.

    He was just a counterfeitter convinced he and he along was capable of building a good guitar.

    I don't wish the guy dead but shit he was never going to stop knocking off other guitars.

    I was in Vegas in Sept and was going to come out to his shop. He invited me to come and see his store, collection, meet in person. I figured I was on vacation and didn't need to see guitars that I wasn't in the market for. In a way I wish I did now just because there are so many stories about this guy, good and bad. Whatever you want to say about him, the guy was a master luthier. Oh well. Like him or hate him, he was a very big fish in this pond and a lot of people knew him. I am sure some people will miss him, others will piss on his grave. Either way, he made an impact. On the upside death always brings killer deals on stuff when the family is ready to sell off!

    I didn't know this guy whatsoever..other what I've learned here. Basically he equal to the holocaust..worse than Hitler.

    Hitler was someone's pride and joy..loved and hated by many!

    I'm sick to DEATH of hearing about him, and Vince Sansafuck!

    Good riddance to both...fuggums!

    This guy WAS NOT a MASTER LUTHIER.

    He was a guy who had lots of money and PAID OTHER PEOPLE to build his fakes....other 'guys' who were indeed master luthiers and needed to supplement their incomes by building his fakes.

    Doesn't mean he deserved to die...but let's 'keep it real'. Sheesh.

    I guess Ron will have to find another schtick....
