I do think im going to go with Griffen Guitars, even though people might get it mixed up with a brand rather than a shop biggrin.gif

Out of the 2 names you listed i like griffen guitars better but,the only problem i would have with that is you dont want people to think your selling a brand name of guitars called griffen.I would keep an open mind and see what else is avalible as well as picking a name that would be good as a .com address as well.Best of luck to you

My Gear
Cort X-2 electric with 24 frets and 2 humbucker's dark Blue
Kustom DFX100 With Celestion Speakers,and thats it now (lol)

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

Its a little bit of both smile.gif I do alot of pre-ordering, so if you e-mail me saying you wanted... say a mesa boogie 5:50 express i could order it and sell it to you in a week. But i also do try and gather used guitars so that i can sell them and at least attract people with some stock... i do not unfortunatly have a storefront yet, soon as long as i keep selling things smile.gif
