Roger Carlsboro Sound I think was a large music Instrument and Amp centre in Mansfield, Notts UK, they did go on to produce excellent amplification equipment. Rose Morris were
Instrument daelers and importers.
Had a shaftsbury myself, 12 stringy copy of a ricki, well I had two actually and desperately seeking to buy on again. Shaftesbury, I think, made pretty good reliable copies. Hope your is OK
