Between 1954-1955, Ernie Ball opened up a teaching studio, giving guitar lessons to aspiring players. It is through teaching these young students that he noticed the difficulty of bending strings and fingering guitar chords with the thicker gauge strings.

 

In the mid 1950's Ernie opened what was the first electric guitar store in the world. Never accepting the first forms of change, people warned him that he would go broke. Though he did just that many times, first and foremost Ernie always paid his bills. Finally in 1958 things started to turn around.

 

Rock-n-roll guitar accessories quickly became a focal point, further cementing Ernie's involvement in a rapidly growing industry.
