Just curious, what exactly is an endorsement and how are they established between manufacturers and bands?
it's like even 'no matter how much butseckz you get you need to give us this much'
Theyre established when a company beleives that their product will sell more if a famous person (in this case a guitarist) is seen with them. In return, this said person will receive all the free equipement from this company that they please.
Yeh. If they can get hold of a band, they give them something for using their products. For example, Trivium decided to sell there balls to Dean Guitars.
