    Not for sure yet but I think Sebastian may have messed up my order. I ordered a 6-string and he sent me pics of an 8-string with almost all the same specs as mine. If it's true that it's a screw up, then there are some changes I'd want made. Maybe it won't end up being such a bad thing! Not really mad or anything, just kind of want to know the truth. I'm waiting for an email reply from him so it could just be a case of a picture mix-up.

    tell him via PM straight away, and he´ll most likely sort you right out.

    Apparently just a case of right picture of the wrong guitar. Oh well. Maybe my other idea will just be another order through him.

    well it's all about compromises..it's a small shop so waiting times are bigger,but you get better specs out of the box.

    as for the pickups they get them on time now it's not a problem anymore I think

    :p the quote was just an example! i know what you saying dude but the thing is, few customers aren't happy.....so the shit is, the guitar takes too much time to be done with the right spec!

    any way... cheers :D

    It is all about compromises. In this case, you get what you pay for.

    Wise words, you can't have low cost, high quality, AND short turnaround time, getting 2 out of 3 is already pretty cool for me. :)

    The wait time is still shorter than in almost all other places you can get a semi-custom guitar.

    waiting time is a lot bigger longer than we expected, cause we started that line thinking about almost identical guitars, something like production custom guitar, that idea failed :D and every guitar is just different, so we have to work on single one just like on any other custom we did in the past, only shape is the same, so at the end we really have almost full custom ;)

    I'm writing this as a (probably unneeded) warning to others.


    It all started on 12/17/09 with -



    After a bit of back and forth re: paypal fees, on 1/3/2010 -


    6 months later -



    On 8/12/10 this was plopped at my doorstep by USPS -

    [​IMG]

    Excuse the shitty and dark cell phone pics.

    Yes. It's right handed.


    I was... disappointed. :squint:


    After a bit more back and forth -


    After a nice long (and much needed) vacation in Barcelona, I've finally decided to deal with this bullshit now. I will be creating a FS thread soon, but have no interest in having anything else to do with Roter.

    My mistake (besides ordering in the first place) was to have a hands-off approach. If you choose to go with Roter, I would strongly suggest that you regularly bug his ass for updates and pictures. Good luck.

    In the end, I knew the deal was too good to be true, but loosing a grand (in the absolute worst case) would not hurt me much, so I took a chance.

    Caveat emptor.

    That fucking blows and tears at my heart strings man. Honestly this shit is wack - sucks that the only suggestion the Sebastian gives you is to take a hit on a guitar you just got and then resend him the money for HIS mistake :noway:

    Agreed. Opening the box was certainly a kick in the balls.

    Thanks. This is why I've decided to just wash my hands of it. Live and learn.

    :( I'm so sorry to see that man. A mistake of that magnitude is really just inexcusable.
    I can only hope that I and all the others who have yet to recieve our guitars recieve them with the correct specs, but this certainly doesn't bode well.

    Okay. Seriously. What the fuck.

    Sebastian, this is the sort of thing that is your responsibility to make right; not his.

    Actually, in this case, it's looking more like low cost, shot-in-the-dark quality/specs, and long turnaround time :noplease:

    Yeah how about Sebastian takes responsibility for yet ANOTHER fuckup in a continuing series, takes the guitar back, and gives you what you ordered or a refund. If you used a credit card through paypal I would suggest calling your credit card company and see if they'll reverse the charges. There is absolutely no way you should have to do the work and send more money to fix this.

    Which two is that exactly? I have yet to see more than the first one...
