  2. Re: Carter Vintage Guitars is now Carter Vintage Exchange

    I can't find their consignment fee on their website. Maybe I'm missing it? The North American Guitar takes 20%, so I am assuming Carter's terms will be similar.

    Re: What's your new fiddle tune?

    I visited TME today and played this mandolin. It was simply fantastic! Might have been the best sounding mandolin they had on the rack in all honesty. I bet it will go quick!

    Old time, Appalachian mandolin music can be hard to find, and mandolin/banjo duo performances even harder!
