Roscoe Guitars Introduces the LG 322

The new guitar features dual humbuckers, a graphite-reinforced neck, and a hand-carved top.

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.”

Specs:

  • Chambered mahogany, swamp ash, alder, or Spanish cedar bodies
  • Hand-carved exotic wood tops.
  • 25.1” scale length graphite reinforced 3-piece (maple/purpleheart/maple or Spanish cedar/paduk/Spanish cedar), 24 fret necks with matching front & back headstocks. A 25.5” scale, 22 fret version in development.
  • A variety of available fingerboard wood options.
  • Both stop tailpiece and tremolo versions.
  • Dual-humbucker pickups with 3-position switching and master volume and tone controls (custom pickup and wiring options available upon request).

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
