I have a website that is dedicated to collecting a specific company's guitars (Reverend Guitars). I am getting requests from visitors that I create a searchable database that users can upload images to and make changes etc.
That might be clear as mud, so let me set the stage.
There are less than 5000 musical instruments made by the company. There were various models, options and colors available, and each instrument had a serial number.
SN 04111 for example, was a Model: Slingshot Color: Lava Swirl, Neck: Maple, Tremolo:Bigsby, there are some other data fields, but you get the idea.
Users want to be able to do a search on the website for Lava Swirl, Slingshot, and get the information for those guitars.
Simple enough, but what would be cool is, if you owned SN 04111, then you could upload pictures of it to the database, so that others could see it when they queried the database. Also, if any changes were made to the guitar, users could add that information, for example, tuners switched to Sperzel locking tuners etc.
And of course, I want to do this on the cheap. I searched online database softwear and got lots of folks that wanted to sell me a service that will "do it all" for the low price of $300 ever month.
Its a labor of love, and not a business site.
