I would like to make a suggestion. All guitar manufacturers are guilty of the same assumption when it comes to demonstration videos for their various models. They get some wildly talented person with skills that most of their customers do not nearly possess and they play these elaborate compositions to demonstrate what the guitar is capable of. Usually, it is some elaborate finger or flat picking piece or chords way up the neck that most of us don't use.  Perhaps those people with the means to pay three or four grand for an instrument respond to this.

What I would like to see is someone doing cover tunes of popular classic hits, as this is something more likely that your customers would be playing. How about a classic rock hit, a country tune and perhaps a blues piece. Show us how the guitar sounds playing what we would be likely to play. That is what would sell the guitar. Very few demo videos are played for us rhythm guitarists. Just infectious rhythms, maybe some walk downs, pull offs, hammer-ons, with a short lead at some point in the song. I assure you that those of us viewing one or two grand guitars usually are more interested in judging a guitar by what I am describing.

What? No Linda Taylor demo? Some of us might like to hear it.

sounds like a good idea!
