Tell me if this is a good idea or not.
At the music store I work at, people come in and ask if we rent guitars for a couple nights or something. And we don't. In fact no one here does. (Tucson, Arizona) Then I thought, people usually have extra guitars so the need to rent one would be very scarce. However amps is a different matter. For example, Earth, Wind and Fire was in town playing a show and their Mesa F-100 had problems. So the road manager came into the store and bought a F-100 combo for $1300. I would think if the opportunity was there, they would have much wanted to rent the amp for the gig and not pay $1300. The only exception is that their may not have worked at all and the needed a new one anyways. But if someone just needed the amp for one show because they didn't have one, do you think a little business that rented out high end equipment would be a useful and productive service? Please say yes or no and why. Thanks
