This is in my mind an exellent opportunity to acquire a "Ready to Use" guitar collection that has a firm visible line; Custom built Signature Guitar models. A search for any of the guitars in the collection shows that not many are available on the market today, and certainly not the ones that are signed by the artist. It would take much effort and many years to recreate.
Maybe you are collector just starting up, and can use this as a base for a future life in collecting. Or you have a vision of how this collection could be displayed for all to see and have the contacts and ideas of how to proceed. I´m thinking Large Theme Hotels or music-store-chain, or a Theme Restaurant chain ( to be continued )
