Should Kevin O'Leary Endorse a MacKenzie & Marr Guitar?
On January 13, 2010 the CBC hit show, Dragons Den aired an episode with Kevin O'Leary playing two guitars - one a $5000 model from a very limited high end maker and the other, our new Tofino, priced at $900. Kevin's challenge was, while blindfolded, to identify the high priced guitar. To our delight he picked Tofino as the better sounding and better playing of the two. Still blindfolded, he held up our guitar and said emphatically to an audience of a few million viewers "This is the $5000 guitar". He created an instant stampede of orders and signed on as one of our business partners. We still produce that guitar. In fact its consistently one of our best selling models. Visit the Tofino page of our site for more information.
Now, six years later we'd like to introduce a special "Kevin O'Leary" edition of Tofino. The problem with doing so is that Kevin is very shy. We sense a reluctance on his part to be honoured with his own guitar. What do you think?
