00:00 / 1:10:07

My dude Shelby has returned!! He came on the show quite a while ago back when he worked at a little place called Chicago Music Exchange. He has since struck it out on his own, and created a company called Black Bobbin which is doing some really awesome stuff. We talk about what he has been up to, how the guitar industry is changing, the challenges with starting a guitar shop during the pandemic, and a whole lot more!
