I recently started a company and we want to build a great guitar parts store to sell in the European Union. It's aimed at guitarists who want to upgrade, customize or repair their instruments. I'm not going to plug the company or our website, but we want to bring some real value to the community of guitar builders, luthiers and modders out there. So we figured we better ask you guys for your opinion.
What brands do you think deserve more attention? There seems to be a lot of independent manufacturers out there doing a great job and we're considering reaching out to a few. Who's on your list?
What extra content do you think would be useful for modders? We're already developing a "Guides" section for beginners and intermediates who would like to learn more about the guitar building & modding process. Any topics you want to see covered, questions you want answered?
What matters most to you when buying online? Is it free shipping, fast delivery times, customer service, other?
Like I said, this is really more of a passion project than a business venture and our number 1 priority is bringing as much value to guitar enthusiasts as possible. If you have any ideas, suggestions, criticisms or any kind of feedback at all, that would be much appreciated.
"The best music happens when you have a personal connection to it. That same philosophy can extend to the instrument you hold in your hands: if a guitar means something special, you're bound to do great things with it."
