May has arrived once again, which means the time has come for the Huber & Breese Music Anniversary sale. Guitarist Paul Huber and percussionist Terry Breese have supplied musical equipment to the Detroit area for 37 years now, and everyone looks forward to their annual party. It’s a day of music, food, and enthusiasm!
The big day came on Saturday May 9th this year. All the major manufacturers sent representatives to help with the event, and Gibson gladly did its part. Three Gibson employees arrived to make the day a success: the area sales rep Paul Van Name, product specialist Chris Larpenteur, and assistant plant manager Don Ruffatto from the acoustic division in Bozeman, Montana.
Several hundred people turned out to see the huge selection of instruments at incredible prices. The deals were the best of the year, and the day provided a unique opportunity to have questions answered by company experts. Plus, Paul Huber’s son Hans once again performed his miraculous work on the grill, another annual tradition that everyone eagerly anticipates.
A Songwriter Deluxe Standard, newly introduced to the Gibson line this year, received more attention than any other guitar. Everyone agreed that its compound radius finger board made playing a breeze, especially as you moved higher up the neck.
As things wrapped up at the end of the day, many great instruments had found their way to new homes. A J-45 Custom, anther model introduced earlier in the year, sold after only just arriving, along with other pieces from Gibson Montana, the Gibson Songmaker series, and Epiphone.
Once again, Paul Huber and Terry Breese threw a terrific event!
