Ernie Ball

Sometime in 1957 or 1958, Ball opened what was arguably the first music store in the United States to sell guitars exclusively, in Tarzana, California. When music sales reps criticized him for refusing to sell drumsticks and other instruments equipment, Ball replied, I just want to sell guitars. He was repeatedly told that a guitar store would never be a success, but the words rang hollow as people began to come from miles around to visit the shop. Eventually, the products spawned from his company would sell in more than 5,500 stores and be exported to more than 70 countries of the world.Ball remained active in his company until his death 42 years after its founding. He died from an ongoing, undisclosed illness on September 9, 2004, leaving the business to his sons and other family members.
