In 2007/8 the credit crunch caused a major shift in profit (for dealers and sales crews) from new car sales to used. This due to lack of demand. As the boomers start to liquidate guitar holdings in the next ten years, and the lack of guitar oriented pop music lowers demand... I'm wondering if the Guitar Centers will become the future pawnshop for gear. There seems to be one in every mall. Will the cheap off shore manufactured gear be in Wallmart? A $129 squire telecaster seems in keeping with what they do (I'm thinking about The Schwin brand for bikes).
