I met Lowell in 1973 at his store in Kokomo. I was trying out a new SuperChet and Lowell asked me what I thought. I said I liked it and he replied "I don't." I don't remember what it was he disliked about it but we got into a discussion during which he told me he was Chets' brother and that Chet gave him one and he didn't want it! He also told us about this great Chet- style guitar player named Roger Hill who played in town. I never saw him play because I was playing every night but my ex wife Marjorie went to see him and confirmed what Lowell said. I met Roger later and he was very friendly. Anyone else on here know him?

I found two guitarists on the internet named Roger Hill, one Brit who died in 2011 and one American, this one:

He recorded as early as 1925, so I don´t know. He may have been too old to be "your" man?
