Andy’s Music and Epiphone Guitars recently hosted an event for Andy’s customers in the Mobile area. The event featured an Epiphone guitar giveaway, a question and answer session with Scott Riley, Epiphone product specialist, and a free guitar restring for the first fifty customers.
Andy’s customers who received a special invitation were able to bring their guitar in for a free restring and adjustment. Strings were provided by Gibson Musical Instruments. Special event pricing was available on Epiphone guitars and amplifiers.
Two Epiphone electric guitars with gig bags were provided for the drawing; a Dot Studio in cherry finish, and a Les Paul. Two drawings were held during the afternoon, one at 1:00 PM and the final at 4:00 PM. Local guitarist and physician Michael Sforzini was selected on the first drawing, and he chose the Les Paul. John Johnson was the winner of the second drawing, and he received the Dot Studio. Needless to say, both winners were very happy.
“We’re grateful to Gibson Musical Instruments for providing the Epiphone guitars for this event”, said Jim Andrews of Andy’s Music. “When you give a new guitar to a customer and say, ‘Here it is, no charge!’, they never forget that moment, it’s with them for a lifetime. You can’t buy that kind of goodwill.”
Throughout the day, Andy’s customers received all sorts of swag; key chains, posters, Epiphone T-Shirts, and of course, the free restring. “Scott Riley, the Epiphone product specialist was a big help,” said Andrews. “He answered customers’ questions, and even gave some of our staff additional product demonstrations. We must not forget our rep, Byran Young, who initiated and setup this event. The Epiphone van was a nice touch too. It created some excitement of its own.”
