Smikey....I like the guitar shop version, more formal, sounds more professional to me.


I agree with fkalich on this one. It does sound more professional and not like a guitar brand.

By the way how are you shipping your orders? (ie: canada post, UPS, FedX)...I may need to place one very soon?

What is the reason for the name Griffen?

Now that I think about it, if I was walking down the street and seen a store with the title Griffen Guitars, I might think it is a brand. This would attract me more to go in and check it out tongue.gif but not everyone.

Griffen's Music... would be good, but you are just selling guitars and amps so I guess that couldnt work.

Otherwise Griffen's Guitar Shop is a good name. smile.gif so maybe you should stick with that.

And seriously you should make a sound proof room for gear testing. Not all stores here have em and to me they are worth a lot! For one you can play whatever you like and not be bothered about playing cool riffs for the other customers and you can play LOUD which is neccessary in order to get to know an amp. Well you got a 100W Krank so you know.
Worst I heard when I was told, while playing in the store, "Lower the volume please, we're not allowed to play so loud since we're disturbing them at the mental institution next door". blink.gif

Yeah when i was trying out my JEM and Carvin Legacy 100Watt amp in a HUGE store in Italy - it looks like a warehouse actually, they told me to lower the volume because i might disturb people in the store! I was like: "Hey, it's a music store, and people came here to buy instruments so how the hell can they be disturbed by a guy trying out an amp???"


Btw. when i was trying JEM in Russia, i was in a pretty small music store but it had 2 sound proof testing rooms! It was really cool!

Haha! Mental? I would've gone postal!
Maybe they should reconsider their location. Or you should just scream "I don't care! This is a METAL INSTITUTION!"

Yeah when you do get a storefront, I think it would be totally worth it to invest in sound proof rooms! I'd love to have that at a shop.

Classic line, but it would get you kicked out so fast tongue.gif
