Offering a wide range of quality products at a good price is what attracts and retains customers. Sure it costs money to keep offerings available, but I think that is money better spent than creating and disseminating marketing-BS, generally. Warmoth will get my business because it has what I want now, and not because it is a streamlined to the hilt operation. Please, do what you need to stay in business and generate some profit but don't discount our loyalty to the brand which was hard won with attention to the details. For my new bass, whenever the GAS will subdue my better judgement, I will be looking to Warmoth first, based on past experience. Oh, and don't forget the lefties.
