Greensboro, NC (March 21, 2014) -- Returning to its roots, Roscoe Guitars announces its first instrument in its new electric guitar line. Though electric guitars were the heart of the Roscoe product line when the company was first formed in 1980, the main focus for the past fifteen years has been primarily bass guitars. Customer demand indicates that reintroducing the electric guitar as part of the Roscoe product mix is a decision long overdue, and initial response to prototypes has been enthusiastic.
Roscoe Guitars founder and designer, Keith Roscoe, sees the new line as complimentary to the existing line of instruments. “We’ve perfected the craftsmanship, tone, and playability of our bass guitars and our customers have grown to trust that our instruments are the best and most beautiful in the artisan market. The same skill and precision will make the new electric guitar as equally sought after and cherished by guitar players as our bass guitars are by their owners.”
