I am currently writing a marketing paper on Gibson Guitars and was wondering if anyone knows the process involved with becoming a licensed dealer and/or sponsored by them.

I would guess the first step would be to call Gibson. It is your school work get off your lazy ass and do it your self.

But albeit the rather angsty delivery, he does have a point. Some internet research couldn't hurt, but it would probably be best just to contact Gibson yourself

well obviously you'd have to contact Gibson first and set up a distributership. my understanding is that Gibson requiers you to sell a certain dollar amount each quarter ($25,000 is the number cited in the article i read). for a chain like Guitar Center this probably isn't a problem for small individiual stores this would be tough. some smaller independant stores do middleman themselves to supply other small shops to help reach the quota (the shops they sell to are not authorized dealers however). this is why most small stores don't carry gibson products.

Nope that is the easy way out. Which is what everyone would prefer.Just ignore it and it will go away. Do not say anything you might offend it. Well I am offended by you wanting the info spoon fed to you. Yes people look the other way. I will not.

I always wondered why I never see Gibsons in small stores. Makes sense now.
