We're Not For Sale
Rumours of our impending purchase by one of the "Big Guys" are unfounded
Years (iOK...decades) ago, when I was in the sporting good business there was a saying that went something like "If you haven't heard a rumour by noon on Monday - start one". Lately, a stream of questions about whether MacKenzie & Marr is selling out to one of the major guitar brands has hit my inbox. Someone is starting rumours with no basis in fact. The potential suitors in these false stories range from Martin to Taylor to Gibson. How the misinformation gets traction is beyond me.
Let me put any and all of them to rest.
We are not for sale. We have had no conversations or correspondence with Taylor Guitars on any subject including the purchase of MacKenzie & Marr Guitars. The same goes for Gibson.
No conversations with representatives of Martin Guitars touched on MacKenzie & Marr Guitars as a potential acquisition. They neither expressed interest in buying us nor did we suggest we were open to a purchase.
In short, we're independent and intend to stay independent.
