"You have made a great contribution to the music scene in Vancouver and provided musicians with the opportunity to make more informed and better choices with their instrument purchases. It's an education just to stop by and try out the variety of brands and styles you have in your shop, including the many local luthiers. The atmosphere at Bluedog is welcoming and comfortable for musicians at any skill level. And some of the live music that gets played there! Wow!
