CBS had the magic touch in destroying Rogers. CBS bought them and thought they could push Rogers in the same way they pushed Fender guitars. Rogers then went thru several ownerships and I think that they are currently owned by Yamaha which ironic since Yamaha's Tom arms are essentially taken from the Rogers Swiv-o-matic design.

Thank you for the comment. I fell in love with that finish the first time I seen it. It took me years to find a kit in good shape in that color. Im a lucky man.
