    I've only seen one Rosser guitar in my life, a mini Les Paul style. Haven't heard much about them until recently, but from what I've gathered, Michael seems to be a real legit luthier. I was just wondering if anyone around here has heard about him. He seems to make Telecaster bodies with Pine wood. Does anyone have any experience with his guitars?

    I bought an offset body from him, real nice work, sanded really well, precise cuts.

    ftbtx, do you have any pictures? I would love to see his work :)
    Also, I've read on this forum that Pine is a lot weaker than Ash. Does that mean Pine will dent a lot easier??

    Michael has just gone to an eBay-only model, with no custom orders. He puts up whatever he's decided to do, and you get to scrabble in the auction. This is really unfortunate, because he does great work. I have a Pinecaster P90, a weird little mongrel mahogany Mustang, and a Fano RB6-type body that's still sitting unfinished in my closet.

    Pine isn't really "weaker," but it is softer, which means it dents much more easily

    I'll try and grab some oictures this weekend.
    With my pine experiences, it is a much softer wood. Were you may need to srill a pilot hole for a pickguard screw in alder or ash, in pine I didn't find it necessary.
    My guitars just sit at home, so I'm not too worried about them getting dinged, except when my toddler wants to help fix daddy's guitars.

    Wow, that's a beauty. I've also found out now through his facebook. Sucks, but I respect his choice. I was planning on getting a body from Guitar Mill, but now, Rosser's Telecaster bodies with the use of Pine is really intriguing. :p

    I've had my eye on his work for a while, but only picked up one of his bodies recently. The body was well cut, and shipping was lightning fast. Everything appears to spec, relatively speaking, so I have no complaints.
