    I was once told that if you open up a music store, if you want to deal a certain brand of guitar/bass, you must buy something similar to a dealers license from the company before you begin stocking your store with their instruments.

    Well if you intend to buy new instruments from a manufacturer, then yes, you need a dealer agreement. If you're selling used then anything goes.

    You don't necessarly need a dealer agreement. If you an established some manifactures will sell you a piece or two BUT since you're not buying alot of items you might not get a good a discount as lets say Sam Ash.

    Example:There is one buyer for Sam Ash & he buys FOR EVERY SAM AS IN THE COUNTRY. He'll call up Fender & say "I need 300 strats for all my stores " & you'll say "I need one strat". :)

    Fender WON'T sell one peice. I just used it as an example.
