GC, Musicians Friend, Sam Ash, Sweetwater, etc are constantly sending out catalogs full of guitars. That's a lot of guitars sitting in stores and warehouses. Is the retail sales of new guitars keeping up with the production from Gibson, Fender, Ibanez, etc? At the end of a year, what % of the new guitars they have bought have they sold to individual customers? Have always wondered about this because on rare occasions when I've gone to GC for strings, few customers are playing guitars, much less buying, even at Xmas time.
