    Thanks for that, I was going to buy some shares. Probably a wise decision, as stated in the article, given the economic uncertainty in Europe. It is dicey there and as a result the dollar has gotten stronger making US goods more expensive....not a good thing if you're trying to sell in Europe as Fender does.

    I'm glad this didn't happen. When it becomes about the stock price and maximizing profit, the customers usually loose out.

  5. Reading the article Fender is owed 11 million by GC which has a debt load of 1.6 BILLION.

    I was just going to post the same link but I'm glad it was already noticed.

    I had no idea about the GC/Fender correlation.

    An old saying: When you owe somebody a dollar, you're a debtor. When you owe somebody a million dollars, you're a partner.
