Shark Tank

It's the Friday night hit show on ABC TV. Fans and friends of Voyage-Air Guitar know that in Season 1, we declined a million dollar offer from the Sharks. Since then, we've built a world-wide network of retail dealers in the US, coupled with strategically selected international distributors. Then, ABC ran a Shark Tank follow-up feature during Season 2. In Season 3, we did some things behind the scenes that never made it to air and then in Season 4, we made a deal with Fender Guitar. This has helped to catapult our success. Product orders continue to grow: there's nothing else that compares to a Voyage-Air Guitar!

13 Million-Dollar Businesses That Turned Down Shark Tank Deals: May 2015


Shark Tank Season 1

Season 1, Episode 3: As you all recall, when my son Josh and I appeared on Shark Tank 3 years ago, my partners Harvey Leach and Adrian Bagale had just perfected our folding guitar technology. I didn't want to do anything to diminish its quality and disappoint our guitar playing friends and fans. My objective was, and still is, to build very high quality guitars that just happen to be the most portable and accessible guitars on the planet! So, even though I was berated by Kevin, it was an easy decision to turn him down. After all, we don't want to diminish the value or utility of the worlds' most recognized innovation in the guitar business in generations simply to make a few bucks on a licensing deal.
