I've always tried to buy extremely clean, completely original guitars for my clientele. Any guitars I get that don't meet my high standards are wholesaled to other dealers. I have developed a very large finder and dealer network throughout the country that keeps me in quality inventory. Over the years I have found that if you are honest and fair with the people who locate the great old guitars, they will continue to call when they have something to sell. It's also very important for me to accurately represent an instrument when I sell it and I want to make sure a customer knows exactly what he is buying. Dealing in this manner has been a success....Dave Schaefer, Excerpt from Vintage Guitar magazine interview
