Well there I was, just thinking not a lot on so I will have today and Friday off. Then earlier today I got a call off Clare the owner of Alligator Music in Stockport she said they have six acoustic guitars that do not play as good as they could, so would I have a look at them. Well it is so refreshing to deal with retailers who care enough about their stock and customers I could not refuse. You don’t get that sort of before sales service on line, do you.  I had a quick look today and they are not that bad, but obviously not up to Clare’s standards. Keep it up all you independant small music retailers…….. Fix it before it breaks. Remember small musical instrument retailers might be slightly more expensive than on line stores but they care about their reputation and customers.
