How do you keep a shop from going bust?
In the spring of 2017, the owner of a new custom shop on the Upper West Side of Manhattan got a call from the NYPD.
They wanted a pair of black fender benders for the shop.
It was a fitting name for the new shop.
The owners are also known as the Brooklyn-born and New York-raised Fender Brothers, and they’re just a few of the thousands of customers in New York City.
The custom shop was established in 2001, and has grown to be one of the most popular in the city.
It has more than 700 shops, and sells a wide range of items, including guitars, amplifiers, basses, electric pianos, bass amps, bass guitars, electric guitars, acoustic guitars, pedals, pedals and more.
But for some of these customers, the shops are in the throes of a crisis.
As the number of people wanting to custom make and sell their own guitars and basses dwindles, the owners of the shops have had to adapt.
They’re seeing more and more customers come to them asking about the prices and specifications of their guitars and equipment.
“Customers have been coming in to see what we sell, but there are so many different prices,” said John Mihalik, who has been the owner and manager of the shop for four years.
“We have to have a good sense of how many people are in this market, how many are coming in, what their needs are, what’s their needs for repairs, what we’re going to do to meet their needs, so that we can be a good partner to them.”
Mihalki has been a big player in the custom guitar market since the early 2000s, when he opened a shop in Williamsburg called Les Fender.
He said he’s seen a big shift in the way people want to purchase their guitars in recent years.
“Customers want to buy things that they can use, like their old instruments,” he said.
“I think we’ve seen a trend of people not wanting to pay $3,000 for a new instrument because they can do everything on their own.”
That trend has been driven by a number of factors.
Custom guitars were once the exclusive domain of the elite, and the first guitars were often hand-crafted by the famous makers in Europe.
They were also designed to last a lifetime, and as a result, some collectors are not willing to pay for a brand-new instrument.
“A lot of these people have gone to a shop and said, ‘I’m willing to shell out $5,000 or $6,000 and I can make my own custom guitars,'” said Mihallik.
“That’s kind of crazy.”
M.C. Penney, a luxury retailer that specializes in custom guitars, has also seen a decline in demand for its instruments.
“Our demand for custom guitars has been declining over the past few years,” said Kevin Gaudet, an associate general manager at M. C. Penneys.
“People are looking for more value and they are finding better value at higher prices.
That’s what they’re finding at custom shops.”
While the demand for guitars is down, the number who buy them has been growing.
The number of custom orders in 2017 was 8.7 million, up 10.5 percent from 2016, according to the Custom Shop Report.
That number was nearly four times as many as the number that purchased their own instruments.
Many of the new custom orders came from people in their 20s and 30s.
“They’re buying guitars from older guys that are not really interested in getting their own instrument,” said M.M. D’Agostino, the vice president of business development at the Custom Music Store Association.
“But they are buying guitars that they feel they can play for more money.”
D’AGOSTINO says that while it’s easy for new players to get started on the custom music scene, they’ll need to spend a little bit more time to learn how to play the instruments.
