I'm wondering who makes the line of products with the name
Rogue and are they reliable.?
Depends on the Rogue. Cheap china rogue, or exotic custom small company rogue.
Rogue prices went back up at musicians friend BTW.
Never owned one so i can't comment on reliability.
I suspect theyre pretty cheesy.
Heh, i wasnt entirely serious, i was more refering to Alembics model Rogue bass, heh.
I owned a Rogue 12-string acoustic g*****. It wasn't that bad construction wise. My only problem with it was that it wouldn't stay in tune because of the cheap tuners. It played and sounded really nice.
Ah yes, who needs to be in tune
moral of the story. Rogue sucks.
I have a rogue acoustic guitar as well. Sounds fine. Tuners do suck, though. Not enough to trash the guitar.
But I have played a rogue bass... And it was horrible. It was the really cheap $89 one. Made of plywood. Sounded like crap. Played like crap.
Kid who I was giving lessons to brought in his Christmas gift, a Rogue bass. I played it for a few minutes, actually CUT myself on the awful fretwork, wiped off the blood and recommended he send it back. He had an SX two weeks later.
i have one of the "higer end" rogue basses, i think around $350 its actually very pleasent to play, compared to other 300$ basses. the action was a bit high, but no big deal. but as to who manufactures rogue, i have noooo clue. they have no contact #, and no website, so good luck getting in touch with them.
but if you do lemme know
I heard it was Steve Barr.
It's re-labeled high-end Ed Roman stuff.
He is not that good at producing numbers like that! He tends to have trouble getting them done at all.
I don't know who manufactures Rogue, but I do know that the higher end ones are made in Korea at the same factory that makes Brice basses for www.rondomusic.com The 8 string basses were identical, as well as a few others. Sometimes Rondo/Brice offers cooler woods (cocobolo), but the designs look the same as high-end Rogue/MF to me.
I heard it was wishbass
I bought the entry level rogue for my 10 year old daughter this christmas. She wanted it in pink so I have the wonderful experience of rebuilding a Rogue bass!(?)
Sound on the bass is fine. I would never expect half of the tonal qualities this thing gives from an $89 bass.
Construction is about what I would expect however. I didn't stand in on the sanding of the body but it looked like plywood when I removed everything.
The bass is extremely light and tries to float away when you play it. The neck doesn't feel too awful for the price range and includes 24 frets, but the frets are sharp on the edges, as mentioned above.
The knobs are plastic, the bridge is crap.
The tuners seem to get the job done.
One of the screws was completely stripped on the jackplate when I received it.
for 89 bucks, I'll give this guy (girl now) an 8, but I won't be buying one for myself.
Fieldy's not always in tune and he's got a ton of money. Moral of the story, as long as you can fool some of the people some of the time...
I think it's a nine year old Indonesian child. Just what I heard... just what I heard.
