Season 2: After turning down the Sharks, we continued to build out the business and the product line. We added several acoustic models and developed our first electric prototype. Michael Ferrucci, VP of Sales and Marketing, orchestrated a successful U.S. launch in over 200 retail stores. Based on results, we proved the viability of our technology and every major guitar magazine touted our benefits writing stunning reviews about our guitars. Voyage-Air Guitar had truly arrived and the Shark Tank producers were proud to showcase us.
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!
