    Those are definitely lines that need cut, but they probably sell really well

    They could just do a small catalog and go with a run based system. Have multiple finishes in those runs and some colors could only be obtained by going through your local music store thus providing more business to them.

    Example:
    Nick Johnston Import run
    Colors: Atomic green, atomic whatever color, pink, blue, white (music store exclusive)

    They would sell less to stores but it would reduce some unwanted colors sitting around. This is like in the Magic the gathering market. There is a product called Commander where there were 5 single color decks released for a couple years. Stores would have backstock on certain colors because people did not want to buy that color. They moved to 4 multicolor decks and it was good. Less back stock on stores.

    If Schecter moved to a drop or run type system it would reduce backstock on stores and make it where stores don't have to do massive blowouts to get rid of diahrea toilet bursts.

    Runs are great when you own your manufacturing, but when going OEM economy of scale is king.

    There is definitely a LOT of overlap in their catalog as outside of the US stuff it kind of caps out around ~$1500. Things like evertunes, SS frets, and recent price hikes have moved that bar higher but essentially they really put their energy into their imports.

    I absolutely cannot keep up with their offerings and just check this thread and trust people will link the cool stuff.

    No matter what anyone makes, it is never good enough for everyone and that's life in any business. For me, Schecter and ESP at least try to really offer variety. Schecter reinvents some of these lines regularly, and I applaud them for that. Go to the vault and see all the ones that loose steam, but they are smart enough to change. Since Schecter and ESP are under the same umbrella, it makes sense. Ibanez is evolving as well to appeal to us aging shredmeisters, as well as a new crop of players.

    Companies like EBMM hook their fortunes to one or two players to sell the entire line. The strings carry the brand as a whole, but JP is the winner. Without him they are in deep shit. Once Sterling stepped back, things changed for the worse. They still make nice guitars, but for the price there are so many options for a player to get what they want, it is difficult to compete. I can only imagine how thin those margins are on guitars. They try some cool models/ideas and don't follow trends which I like, but as a business model, it cannot adapt fast enough to the way the world works any more.

    But we all live in the golden age of guitar making, with so many choices for guitars and gear. I think there has to be a perfect fit for anyone looking for an axe in this day and age.

    Oh wow. The reverse burst on that looks completely different to the production model. Hasn't been blended at all.

    That's the one. Bloody difficult to get hold of in Australia. Was a bit of a risk to drop that much money without trying it first but thankfully it paid off.

    Apparently Asian guitar factories can now do crackle finishes. I already see 2021 being the year of the crackle finish. Finally might be a trend I'm into.
