​I read the article.

Interesting checkpoints from some major retail participants.

I think it's more about retail decline and the economy in general, than
about guitars. Media likes shocking and provoking headlines and this is a
prime example. And media is in the game of surviving, too.  Clicks, you

If young consumers are not buying guitars after hearing a stunning artist,
the question may be: What are they motivated by, and what are they
responding to instead? "I'm gonna be a _______ when I grow up!"
