wilco Stock a music store: which guitars? (60* d) RE: Stock a music store: which guitars? 22 Dec 05


Thanks fo input. I can't compete with the discounters, but they don't stock the following: full line of harmonicas, full line of autoharps, lap and hammer dulcimers, 150 fiddles (old and new), upright 3/4 and 1/2 basses, full lines of imported mandolines, dobros, and banjos. I sll lots of fiddles, mandos, and banjos (about 50% of which are open back); and, people jam in the store all day long. There are no electric instruements and its all old time, string band, and bluegrass.
Right now, it's Johnson, Epiphone, Blueridge, some limited Takamini, used martins, and used Gibsons. Blueridge are great guitars, but the company is poorly run.
    The Gibson line is too expensive for me to get, and quality control is a issue. Ditto for martin.
    I've had some rade-ins of larivee, which sold very well.
    Please send more suggestions.
Thanks!!!
