The String Store

Christian Basa

My business makes guitar and bass strings. Customers can buy either guitar or bass strings.

Business plan

Restrictions

I can only make 300 sets of guitar strings a month and only 150 sets of bass strings per month. I can only spend $650 every month. Guitar strings cost $5.00 to make and sell for $8.00. Bass strings cost $6.00 to make and sell for $10.00. I make a $3 profit off of guitar strings and a $4 profit off of bass strings.
