    Rousch Custom Built Rosebud

    I set out searching for someone to build a "Rosebud" and talked with many builders, but after talking to Robert about the fine details, I went with him. The end results where as I expected, exceptional. The Stereo output and electronics is mind altering. I now know why Jerry considered "Rosebud" his masterpiece. Robert is building a Tiger for me now, and I can't wait to see the results.

    Wow! What a beautiful guitar!

    Where did he get that hardware?

    And a custom made case? woah!

    Thanks. It really is the focal piece when I have it out.
    He has someone make the hardware, as well as the mop skeleton (Rosebud). Rusch is an amazing builder/artist with attention to detail.

    Beautiful! Must have been lots of hours building that. A showpiece for sure. Now you've got to pull together a tribute band.
