wilco Stock a music store: which guitars? (60* d) Stock a music store: which guitars? 21 Dec 05

I want some advice form the good folks at MudCat.
About a year ago, I opened an acosutic music store in east Tennessee. I don't do any internet sales. My question to the mudcatters are these, concerning lines of guitars. I don't do any electric guitars.
1. Which line of entry level guitars? Johnson, Washburn, Jasmine, Ovation, Epiphone, etc.
2. Which line of guitars that have a wide range of price points? Alvarez, Yamaha, Takamini, etc.
3. What premium line of guitars: Taylor, SanatCruz, martin, Larivee, etc.
4. I would like aa manufacturer for the premium line that actually supports the dealers, and that would have consistent quality control.

Your suggestions? This is a small store, about 1200 square feet, in an old house. I'm talking about a total of about 30 to 40 guitars in stock.

Thanks in advance!!!
