    I agree, that's just a piece of paper confirming what they always did anyway—a basic in the ball park setup. A real setup would be different for each individual since we all have different tastes,...

    He probably means the local Hawaii dealers are slow. Tourists are gone and music stores have been on lockdown for a long time so, if they ain't doing online sales, they have no need for stock.
