SHERYL IS PUTTING together an order for Ibanez guitars and Deering banjos. We had a great Christmas and the first two months of the year were amazing. We are now official dealers for the Deering banjo line. It is always great to see the new guitars come into the store.
In retail, you can never tell what will happen. Yesterday was insane in the store - banjos, basses, guitars and PA stuff all flying out of here.
For some reason, we've had a lot of requests for mixing boards. The other day it was for neon blue bass strings. Odd pieces and parts for guitars seem to be popular right now, too. Maybe because winter's back is finally broken, or maybe because it's tax return time - who knows?
In retail, you ride the roller coaster, you take the highs with the lows, and you rock and roll. It's never dull at Fifth and Maine, and we are optimistic and excited about the future. You never know who will walk in the door or what will be selling next.
