A Luthier’s Life

The Guitar Odyssey of Roger Fritz

Retail Price: $29.95

Foreword by Gene Parsons

From the Alabama Gulf Coast to Nashville to the redwood forests of northern California, luthier Roger Fritz has spent almost an entire lifetime crafting innovative musical instruments for professional players.

His Roy Buchanan and Fritz Bros. lines have been admired for decades as exquisite guitars and basses. A Roy Buchanan Bluesmaster guitar presented to George Harrison (at Buchanan’s behest) was one of the ex-Beatle’s favorite instruments.

Fritz’s efforts in the development of reissues of high-end Kay instruments is also part of this quintessential success story of an American artisan.

This authorized biography includes recollections from such musical legends as Darryl Jones, Bill Bottrell, Vicki Peterson and others, along with over 200 color photos.

Proceeds from the sale of this book will also help other communities and organizations preserve their history through Our American Heritage Project, a non-profit organization.
